Rosslew (185) - - MAR 8, 2014
Nice honey in the glass. Definitely ripe fig. A waft of fortified wines. Sweet but then a welcoming equalising sour in taste. Very thick in mouthfeel. Not to be gulped. Surprising orange on the finish. Enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle, from the Purvis cellars. The Cognac barrel (and the high ABV) makes its presence known immediately on the nose and follows through with a rich high flavour in the mouth. Pours deep amber with light white head. Malt backbone is sweet but not overly so letting the cognac and a little sourness shine through, there is tartness like blackberries, malts have a pastry or croissant character. The feel in the mouth is full but not a syrupy as I was expecting, but rolls nicely through the centre of the tongue. Finishes fairly dry with a touch of timber.

On tap at Scratch Bar 070314. Version 2 of this great beer is even better than the first version.

maneliquor (3007) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 25, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2014 Bottle cheers to the boob at GABS. Pours light straw with a sticky white head. Nose is very grassy and earthy with bright lemon curd and an odd meatiness to it. On re-rate, absolutely huge apricot jam. Weird but it’s something I tend to get in cognac barrels. A touch vinous with loads of lime, grass and summer fruits behind a largely straw like base. Sticky and dried apricot throughout this brew. Balanced stuff. Not quite the standout like the previous versions but a very solid drop

stoutnick (453) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 24, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2014 On tap at the Scratch. Golden cloudiness. Aroma is apples and yeast. Taste is superb - front end is sweetness, finish is tang. Honey, apples, yeast. Better than last year’s quadruple.

timdom (19) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 10, 2014
Dryer than its brother the Aurora Australis and very fragrant thanks to the cognac barrel ageing. A very enjoyable beer and perfect with some blue cheese and toasted sour dough. If you can get it do so.

StevieT (544) - AUSTRALIA - APR 4, 2014
From a bottle. Cloudy orange colour, fruity aroma and a hint of the barrel ageing with a distinct Cognac flavour. It was smooth for such a strong beer, not sessionable but very nice.

Maris (969) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - MAR 31, 2014
From a 330ml bottle on 31/3/2014. Pours a very slightly cloudy deep golden with a small head. Has a modest aroma of pear, apple and dried fruit, with some yeasty notes. It’s quite straight flavour wise, with bready malt and lots of sweet fruit (pair and apple again), honey, and just a dash of spice, sour citrus and alcohol at the back. Has a slick palate and average carbonation. A nice sweet beer, but there’s nothing here that will really blow your hair back.

Sevenlee (1270) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - MAR 19, 2014
Pours a clear amber colour with a beige head. Aroma is malt, fruit, nuts, spices, cognac and woody notes. Taste is high sweet leading to a woody and boozy but well hidden finish. Awesome!!

Chrishrt30 (97) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 1, 2014
Golden honey colour with a big white fluffy head. Big fruity aroma, figs, walnuts, pears and dried candied apricots. Strong fortified wine alcohol tones. Thick and syrupy, nice dried apricots, cinnamon, nutmeg and light herbal taste. Huge malt profile, liquor like sweetness. Finish is sweet and slick, a slight alcohol and earthy hop bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
