Poured a dark orange color with pretty much no head. Aroma was of lots of booze, caramel, brandy. Flavor similar, prettystandard sweet but not to the point of death like some others.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2016 Bottle, Bios. Pours reddish brown, with a tan head. Aroma is brandy, caramel, fruit, and malt. Flavor is brandy, caramel, fruit, toffee, malt, and some alcohol, although not as much as I expected. Heavy, sweet, and lasting finish. A nice all afternoon/evening sipper.

Bottle. The pour is a hazy amber. The aroma is sweet toffee and subtle brandy notes. The taste is very sweet, dark fruits including plums, raisins, and some toffee notes. The brandy adds to it for sure. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(En fût à la brasserie): La clarté de la pomme flambée se marie bien aux sucres pesants et riche de la Bois. Ce n’est pas la plus facile d’approche mais ça reste agréable,

Bois Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with small beige head that lasts. The aroma is strong brandy, wood, dark fruit. Thick mouth, sweet malts, dark fruit, brown sugar, nice brandy presence, really enjoyed this one, favorite of the bois beers.

750ml bottle thanks to Darrel pours out brown topped with a small ring of a head. Nose is sweet as can be brown sugar maple syrup brandy barrel notes booze vanilla caramel toffee and every other sweet you can name. Taste is lots of sweetness dominates the entire beer brown sugar toffee caramel vanilla brandy and a nice thick mouth feel. I like this one.

Bomber. Rich boozy sweet brandy, and I love it. Murky orange pour. Woody. Nice sharp finish. Excellent beer.
