bhensonb (10367) - 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 (6022) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 17, 2014

czar (3812) - 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.

Bottle (750 ml). As "Bois Brandy". From Marcus, thanks! Reddish brown with a small beige ring of foam and no lacing. Aroma is boozy with apple, red fruits, figs, plum, caramel and cough syrup notes. Taste is moderately sweet and quite boozy with apples, cough syrup, caramel, figs, plums and a warming (almost burning) finish. Full bodied. Low carbonation. Sirupy mouthfeel. Quite complex, but also quite booze. Balance isn’t bad considering the abv. Enjoyable sipper.

Bottle 750ml. Pours brown with some red reflects. Some lacing. Aroma is of alcohol, malt, apples, some cough syrup. Taste is of malt, alcohol, sugar, dark fruits (dates, plums). Palate: Full bodied. Overall: Nice dark fruits. Good, surprisingly "drinkable".

mathieuc (999) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 19, 2014
Pours a dark brown with no head, still looking. Nose is pure alcohol burns, I couldn’t smell anything else. Taste is of raisins and grapes, plums, not too sweet. It is really hot, though, with a sweet finish. A good sipper.
