UPDATED: APR 30, 2019 (375ml 2017 bottle shared @ Nische's tasting, thanks Otso!) Pours clear deep mahogany with a tiny tan head. Rich notes of dark rye bread, toffee, molasses, deep wood and heavy grape and cognac accents, dates, touch oxidized but I think it’s the barrel. Quite sweet up front, very high flavour concentration but not cloyingly sugary either. Massive into the finish, with a long cognac aftertaste, some toasty nutty roast and spent coffee in there but still above lightly sweet. Full viscous body with very soft carbonation and no real alcohol. Big indulgent beer, the barrel is very sympathetic to the base here and integrates well; only after having variants does one fully appreciate how much it's doing. Super sipper.
