big and boozy up front, a bit hot and malt forward. Full bodied, loads of vanilla/oak. Great sipping beer by the firepit. Needs a year or so to mellow out and shine

Bouteille 33cl de Ibrew2or3, thanks Dave. Ambre au col crmeux caf au lait laissant un lger filament huileux sur le verre. Arme est malt offrant bien le ct Cognac mais avec un rtro-nasal alcoolis ponctu de notes sucres, fruit noir. Palais est galement malt, lger chocolat/biscuit sur une note de crale le tout gardant un lger sucr. La barrique et le Cognac restent agrable sans vraiment parvenir combler mes attentes au niveau du mrissage. Pointe dpice avec ce ct levure et un final collant aux lvres. Fin de bouche garde ce ct fruit alternant raisins secs et date-figue, un lger grill et le Cognac en tout dernier.
