Poured from a 750 ml bottle of Bois. Aroma is similar to the other Bois bottles, but with more dried fruit and grapes and a less roast forward malt profile. The fruitier aroma allows the alcohol to show through more than in the whiskey versions. Pours a murky reddish brown with a moderately sized, medium thick, tan head that recedes to a thin film that lingers across the glass. Light leaving and moderately long legs. Flavor is also similar, but I think the added fruitiness actually works better than the more malty whiskey versions. Moderate brandy notes. Seems a bit sweeter. Mouthfeel is the same as the others. Overall, a nice beer with a good brandy character. Lots of fruitiness and a bit sweeter than the others.

Bottle received in trade from TexIndy, thanks for the opportunity! Shared with a few folks sitting around a campfire at Rob’s Huge oak and brown sugar with lots of fruit and a touch of warming alcohol. Not much of the spirit left, but a great beer to sip with friends.

fletchfighters (1158) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 5, 2014
750 ML bottle Dark, murky brown color. Thin, light tan collar that leaves thin lacing. Sticky ABV legs. Nose is highly fortified. Sweet brandy, dark fruits, date, lots of brown sugar, and subtle oak and chocolate. Lots of alcohol. Taste is pretty much the same but a lot more heat and spice. Big body, sticky sweet, lots of booze. Interesting but needs more time to mellow out.

750ml bottle. As Bois. The barrel aged versions of this beer are getting more and more balsamicy. Liquid diabetes.

hopscotch (9744) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 20, 2014
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.
