Our brown ale aged in brandy barrels for at least six months. The small batch size means variable carbonation levels as we actually carbonate this beer in the keg.

On tap at Tyranena, pours a clear dark reddish brown with an off white head and some spotty lacing, the aroma was extremely sweet with a good amount of malt and caramel, the flavor has a front end of brandy and fruit with a sweetness of malt in the finish, interesting how the brandy really shows through, too sweet for my overall liking but different.

On tap at GTMW - Pours rosy amber with a small head. Caramel, light brandy, and some light nuttiness on the nose. Taste is sweet and malty, with a boozy brandy finish. Pretty smooth, with a touch of carbonation. Was hoping this one wasn’t going to be so sweet. As it stands, it’d be killer over vanilla ice cream.

On tap at GTMW. Poured clear light-medium brown with a nice off-white head. The aroma picked up sweet Brandy and vanilla over warm nutty malts.. pleasant, but not exciting. The flavor found sweet toffee, dark vinous fruits, and nutty notes at the core.. light peppery Brandy surrounded.. dry and oaky, especially on the back. Light-medium bodied and thin at times on the palate.. a tad grainy too.. not exciting, but very drinkable.

Draft on tap at Great Taste of the Midwest 2011 (Madison, WI). Pours a nice lightly hazed pour, dark brownish with a deep amber bottom, a frothy offwhite head is decent sized, dies to an ok film. Aromas are brandy, sweet malts, wet oak, vanilla with a touch of sweetness. Some brown malts, biscuits. Initial lighter end of medium bodied. Touches of toffee, brown malts, and rich spirit is gentle, cool vanilla flows, wet oak, touches of apple, spice, and yeast. Backend throws some sweet sticky malts, brown malts, toffee, and biscuits. Lingering vanilla from the barrel. Not too shabby.
