Bottle... Murky singed-caramel pour with a quickly dissipating head. The nose is too restrained at first, but after warming a bit, notes of caramel and brandy begin to shine. Full-bodied and oily with dancing carbonation. The flavor is a whirlpool of rich caramel, toasted malts, brandy and oak-driven tanginess. Finishes hearty, bittersweet and nourishing. Bottle courtesy of biggsbowler!

Brandy Bois: Everyone had a favorite with the 2013 varieties. This was it for a couple of them, and I can see it. It was a little boozier than the naked american oak, but man, the brandy aroma and flavor blended nicely with the base beer. Best nose of the lot.

solidfunk (3842) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Lots of syrupy caramel aroma here., like with most of this line of beers. Mahogany pour with ok head and lacing. Lots of booze. Sweet finish. Bottle shared by someone at tasting.

nimbleprop (4756) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 17, 2014
750ml bottle of Brandy Bois pours a clear, caramel amber with some clumpy, tan head. Nose has a ton of booze, apples, candy, some bubblegum. Flavor is sweet, tart, loads of raisin, caramel, candy, booze, spice. Some pepper too. Full bodied, sticky finish. Why?

Sparky (2243) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUL 31, 2014
Sampled at 2011 RBWG. Pours clear amber with zero head. The nose is malt, sweet brandy, brown sugar and molasses. The taste is molasses, burnt caramel, dark fruits and super sweet brandy. Medium mouthfeel on the flatter side. Hot and sweet but tasty. 4.0

JorisPPattyn (7877) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 13, 2014
Sampled as Bois Brandy barrel aged Small rim, over deep brown-red beer. Chocolate, pinewood, and faintly to clear alcohol. Sweet, praliné with alcohol enhancement. Actually too sweet, but there is something lurking as sourish chocolate. Alcoholburn, long fiery aftertaste, viscous. Too agressive for my liking - "harsh sweetness" is what the tasting group suggests.

77ships (3681) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 13, 2014
75 cl. bottle sampled @ "Er Klopt Iemand Op De Deur" Samson & Gert Bierproeving I. Thanks to Christian! Tasted as “The Bruery Bois (Brandy Barrel)” side by side: 5 version of Bois: Bourbon BA, Brandy BA, French Oak BA, New American Oak BA & Rye Whiskey BA. Pours hazy reddish brown with spare light brown head only on the sides, same look all five. Taste is similar to Bourbon BA & New American Oak BA but there is more bitter oak here which makes the beer a bit less homogenous than Bourbon or New American Oak and less preferable to me, still very nice. Taste is similar, very sweet, toffee, bubble gum, cereal, very thick brown sugar, caramel, toffee, vanilla, fruits, molasses, dough, the light bitter oak in the back. Thick, sugary, soft carbonation.

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.

ryanfolty (1836) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - MAY 25, 2014
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.
