1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Brown hue with a fast disappating head. Strong perfume and parma violet nose with plenty of spice. Strong brandy taste that just doesn’t go with the beer. Grape and malt based drinks just aren’t made to be mixed. Quite an pleasant taste. Not good.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Amber body, headless. Nasty artificial aroma, mixing two things that don’t go together. Sweet, uncomfortable taste mix, nasty aftertaste. Yuck. Did not finish. (Bottle from some supermarket on the way back home from Spain)

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle 330ml ABV 5.5% (Saveur)
Some floating particles, amber color, small white head. Aroma is skunky with evident cognac which smells like tequila in Desparado beers. Light-bodied. Some cognac sweetness, vanilla, otherwise cardboardish maltyness and grassy hops which feel old. This is a bad idea.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Whoa, surprisingly easy to find in the database; I guess "xo" is not the most common letter combination. Bottle. Pours like an Orbitz, if you remember those. Nose is pretty sweet, with that orangy cognac smell. Flavour doesn’t have any alcohol or yeast character, just a simple soft cara-centred Belgian ale with cognac flavour. Sweet orangy finish. The worst beers I’ve ever had were French beer/tequila mashups so I was kicking myself for buying this when I realized it hadn’t just been aged in cognac barrels, but actually I’ve gotta say this was pretty good, not offensive whatsoever.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
This is a dark golden brown with almost no head. I’m thinking it’s more of a liquor than a beer. The aroma is very heavy on the Cognac. No issues here with what this beer is, a high alcohol brew. Aside from the cognac, the only other discernable aroma was burnt sugar. The flavour was similar to the aroma, heavy on cognac and sugar, light on malt and hops, and therefore sickeningly sweet
