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!

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2010 On tap at CIgar City takes NYC event at Rattle ’N’ Hum. Apple brandy there, its fine as an old ale, some apple brandy, but not all that tasty. No head, bit above average mouthfeel. APpropriate carbonation.

On tap at Rattle N Hum for their Cigar City event. Pours a hazy murky brown with a thin tan head. Smooth, fruity, wood and a touch of booze. Spicy wood, generous malt and subtle sweetness. Finishes up with a light warming alcohol. hopscotch (11051) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 15, 2010
Growler… Clear, very dark, ruby ale – when held up to light – with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. Malty, fruity, vinous aroma. Full-bodied and oily with tickling carbonation. The flavor is of sweet cotton candy, toffee and brandy. Sweet, boozy, warming finish. I’m not as big a fan of brandy barrel aged beers as I am of the Scotch, red wine and bourbon barrel variety.
