COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A sweet nose greets the adventurous in this marriage of our Black Betty Russian Imperial Stout and 50 year old American Brandy barrels. An elegantly pleasant surprise wakes the palate which migrates from a hint of Brandy into the wonderfully lingering roasted malt character.

Hoping for a little more sweetness but this is solid stuff. In our beer world so full of bourbon barrel everything, Sexy Betty brings a distinctive and welcome character to the imperial stout table.

Bottle. Jet black, fluffy brown head. Beautiful aroma of vanilla, brandy, licorice. Taste is smooth rich licorice, plums, raisins, dark cocoa. Delicious.

Even though itís slightly stronger than Black Betty, there is less of a boozy character in this one. The barreling is mellow but well integrated. Hints at fruit and oak and booze, but the roastiness of the stout and even the hops come through nicely. A hair under Black Betty...between 4.3 & 4.4, but due to the subtle nuances at play here, Iíll give it the higher nod. Supposed to be beer 5k, just a few hundred late :)"

Bottle shared at Crooked Stave, courtesy of Greg. Thanks man! Pour is pitch black with a frothy brown head and great lacing. Cocoa nibs, espresso, a touch of spice, dark fruity, and brown sugary aroma. Taste is is deep dark chocolate, espresso beans, toasted malt, slightly earthy, and dark fruity with a long-lasting chocolate finish. Thick mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Really good stuff.

Bacterial (1520) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUL 25, 2014
Black pour, a bit on the thin side for an imperial stout. Nice thick tan head. Smoked malt, char, chocolate nose. Maybe a hint of brandy in there too. Taste is nice. Roasted malts, bitter hops giving way to a nice boozy character, oak, brandy, just a touch sweet.

Draft pour. Pours black with a slightly boozy chocolate aroma. Really smooth flavor with cocoa nibs and a touch of vanilla. A little boozy, but nowhere near overpowering. This beer goes down really easy. Really well done. Great stuff.

ACHops (672) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 27, 2014
On tap @ Uber. Pours thick inky brownish black with a thin lacy mocha head. Aroma is dark chocolate, some roasty malt, and big boozy brandy. Taste is super smooth dry oaky dark chocolate, finishes lightly bitter. Thatís about it.... Incredible complexity on the nose, while the flavor is quite blunt. Still, easily a winner.

TomDecapolis (4473) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JUN 11, 2014
Pours a deep black with a creamy tan lacing head. Aroma of chocolate malt, oak and molasses. Flavor of caramel, toffee, milk chocolate and oak.
