Deep amber, ruby edges. Huge boozy nail polish nose. Big cognac upfront, mild booze burn that leads to a cherry halls cough drop finish. Garbage.

Bottle; Pour is murky brown with a one finger khaki head in this glass; it retains on the average side, with some spotting present. This brew has a fantastic nose ; cognac heavy initial, some earth, ash, tobacco, vanilla, chocolate, and dark fruits here. The flavor profile; the only downside is that its probably too sweet. Cognac, caramel and chocolate morsels, booze, some bittering hops, sweet bread, and some dark fruit present. Very pleasing experience

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 338/564. Pours with a black hued body and a lasting tan head. Aromas are huge: boozy, fruity and vinous. Lots of alcohol, lots of brandy/congac. Chewy, dates and chocolate. Flavors are fusel but somewhat easy to overlook with chewy chocolate and vinous dark fruits. Dates, raisins, alcohol and barrel. Big and thick body, medium low carbonation. Very warming.

Cognac barrels bring layers of complexity to the base. Dark fruits, brandy sweetness, more booze, bready. Finishes mildly sweet with alcoholic warmth. I really like this brew.
