Pours flat, no head, no carbonation. Looks like a port or dessert wine. Melted brown sugar and leather color.
Nose is brown sugar, toffee, raisins, and brandy. Still sweet and sticky tasting. Reminds me more of a Thomas Hardyís.
Taste is brown sugar, rum, raisins. Still get a good amount of alcohol from this. No carbonation. sticky and sweet. Good finisher

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shard w/ the Chicago crew on a random Sunday and drank right next to the bourbon version.
Pours a dark brown, very little carbonation, some bubbles here and there. Very "sticky" looking and thereís a brown hue on the sides of the glass after swishing it around a bit. Chocolate, dark fruits, brandy, burnt sugars. Maybe a little too much brandy (still) so I think this could age even longer. Similar to the nose. Lots of brandy, chocolate, caramel, and a touch of barrel/oak. I think this one still has some hotness and can benefit from some more aging (unlike the bourbon). Medium bodied, maybe a bit thin, but still rich.
Very good but didnít blow me away. This one was out-shined by several other beers we had during the night. I think some more cellar time would do this one good while the bourbon version seems ready to drink now.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Huge thanks to funkel81 for getting this to me. Been a long time want for me. 375 ml bottle C&C bottle served in a Half Acre tulip.
A: Pours a dark brown color with a stillness to it. Very low carbonation with no real head forming on the pour besides some small off-white wisps hovering around on top.
S: Toffee sweetness with some dark fruit flavors. Toasted malts with raisins, figs and some earthy dates. Caramel as well.
T: Burnt sugars with some caramel covered raisins. Heavy malt sweetness with a touch of light cardboard. As it warms it takes on a light earthiness with more sweet toffee and a fudge characteristic as well. Dark fruits on the finish. No noticeable booze at all.
M: Medium bodied with a slightly syrupy mouthfeel. Low carbonation level.
O: Letting this sit around warm up to room temperature really opened up a great bouquet of flavors. The minimal oxidation gave it a sherry like flavor to it and a nice sweetness as well. Most personal whales disappoint, this did not.
