daknole (11041) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Nice dark brown pour, deep tan head. Lots of sweet malt up front, the barrels turned down the hops a bit. Brandy notes, raisins, prunes, toffee. Damn good!

hopscotch (11024) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Bottle... Murky brown ale with a small, white, short-lived head. The bouquet furnishes buttery caramel, toffee and loads of apple brandy. Medium to full-bodied with feather-soft carbonation. The flavor is remarkably well-balanced - caramel, apple brandy, vanilla, oak and an awkward earthy component. Finishes earthy and a touch minerally. I enjoyed the base beer (Church on a Hill) and the Cognac Barrel-aged Church on a Hill much more than this treatment. I gotta go against the grain here, but not by much. Bottle courtesy of burg326!

[email protected] 2015, Red Session - dark brown coloured pour with beige head. Medium sweet malty aroma and taste, toasty, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, dried fruity, some spices on the palate, brandy infused wooden notes in the finish. Beautiful.

Bottle @ Steve_0s house, thanks to markwise. Thanks! Pours a hazy orangish brown appearance with a brown head. Rich caramel, a touch smoky, apple / pear, chocolate, toffee aroma. Kind of spicy, chewy caramel candy, dark chocolate flavor with a lot of white fruit. Pretty sweet but not overly so. Tasty.
