aroma is strongly potpourri. color is caramel clear. flavor is as expected, less like pie, more like a candle. a bit of a brandy like warmness, and some brown ale in the background. too sweet for me.

Entering old rates. Draft @ CCB Couleur brun fonc, col moyen beige. Arme prsente une subtile dominance de lApple Brandy le tout sur des notes maltes, boises avec ce porifle type de barlkey wine dans un ct sucr toffee. Palais est agrable, alternant douceur malt sucre/caramel et ce renforcement dApple Brandy donnant de lgres notes de pommes avec un alcool rchauffant au palais ans pour cela devenir surfait. Belle alternance entre le malt, un lger fruit noir et un fini caramel voire chocolat.

out of a growler pours dark black like oil. no head, appears flat with a warm smell of brandy, and chocolate covered apples. tastes like the smell only warmer from the brandy. the sweetness from the apple really comes through on the after taste

pours dark brown almost black with no head at all. Aroma of brandy, caramel and spices. Taste follows nose, this treatment really brings the spices to the forefront. Smooth and easy to drink for the abv

On tap in dc D-e-licious. A little on the sweet side but definitely hit the spot. Hope to try again to do a more proper rating.

4oz pour at Churchkey looks like rootbeer with zero head. Nice nose, apples, wood, caramel, cola. Flavor is sweet, butterscotch, cola, apple, light malt, brown sugar, caramel. Full bodied, lightly hot finish. I didnt love the base beer but I liked this treatment.

Cheers Dave! Hazy red-amber beer. Moderate head and carbonation. Toffee nose, smooth silky palate. Rich bitterish toffee, caramel and repressed sugar. Rich brandy alcohol blending well with the bitter toffee. If there is any apple here it is subtle and well buried amongst the brandy flavours. Finishes a little salty and with licorice. Delicious!

Sampled a draft at Churchkey for the Bluejacket/Funky Buddha/Cigar City event during SAVOR week. Lots of malts, barley grain notes. Sweet malts. Interesting. Booze is pretty present there.

On tap at Churckey for the Funky Buddha and CCB event. Super dark brown with reddish hints. Big caramel and toffee lead to vinous dark fruits and hints of brown sugar and molasses. Thick body with low carbonation.
