750 ml bottle shared by t0rin0 at RBWG 2011. Pours dark brown to black in color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor had rich, sweet malts, brandy, caramel, toffee, dark fruits, brown sugar, wood, some alcohol, vanilla, and raisins. Big beer, but drinks alright considering how big.

May 25, 2014 - bottle from the source. Brown pour with some head. Aroma was nice balance of wood, caramel, dark fruit and malt with the brandy and vanilla being very noticeable. Taste was consistent with aroma and had a smooth brandy and vanilla finish with a touch of spice. Medium to full body and silky smooth.

Bottle, Bois version. Pours dark brown/red with small tan head. Nose is brandy/apple, malt, caramel, oak, vanilla, toffee. Flavor follows - malt, caramel, oak, wood, very sweet with fantastic full mouthfeel. The brandy makes this that much better... delicious.

Great beer. Body of smooth malt, has some fruits, but the Brandy is dominant, in a very good way that is.

bhensonb (10688) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 17, 2014
Capped 750 shared by Marcus (as Bois). Pours darkly brown with a slight tan head. Aroma is warmly vinous. Med minus body. Starts with brandy, heat and old wood. Gets towards ripe stone fruit. Heat isn’t too bothersome. It’s delicious.

marcus (6300) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 17, 2014
Bottle fromThe Bruery. Pours dark brown with a transient beige head and a fruit and brandy aroma. There is a smooth fruit flavor with some vanilla and a lot of brandy. Complex and tasty.

czar (4100) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 22, 2014
pours hazy light brown reddish with a small light beige head, some retention and lacing. burnt caramel, woody caramel and other roasted notes, some leather, apples, apple sauce, bananas, other red fruits, spices, hint of acidity - maybe from roastiness. moderate carbonation, medium body - oily, sticky, cloying and boozy. complex but a bit off - and i’m not convinced with the use of brandy barrels here.
