The fourth incarnation of Brewer’s Reserve spent a year in the Fuller’s cellar in rare Comte de Lauvia Armagnac casks from the Bas region of France. The beer is infused with brandy characteristics, with distinctive notes of vanilla, green apple and cinnamon, a solid malt base and velvety alcohol warmth.

TheBrawl (7) - SWEDEN - AUG 9, 2014 does not count
Sanslöst stor doft, sött, fatigt och en massa torkad frukt. Aprikoser å russin. Fyllde munnen på ett kladdigt och storartat sätt! Fan vad jag önskar att jag hade köpt en till av den här!!

DerWeg (1598) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 5, 2014
This has a shot of sleek brandy nuances over the totally great alefruits and superb malting - not as forceful as Armagnac’s big cousin, Cognac and it suits well. Winey AND beery all at once, wow I have a full-on beer boner.

Bottle at a camping in the Czech Republic. Clear sunset pour, thick foamy off-white head. Aroma of apricot, peach, pineapple, some alcohol and slightly spicy. Flavor is very fruity, slightly bitter, slightly sweet and with a hint of sourness. Well balanced and with a thick body.

Bozo_skeleton (1051) - Grenoble, FRANCE - MAY 18, 2014
Robe orangée limpide, tres grosse carbo, collet moyen de grosses bulles. Aromes très marqué sur le cherry, le bois, un régal rien qu’au nez. Du velours en bouche, une attaque douceâtre, pour un final délicatement parfumé sur la liqueur. Manque juste un poil de rondeur.

BOSSbrewer (2705) - Arkansas, USA - MAY 13, 2014
Had with Chad to celebrate the end of the semester. Pours an amber orange medium carbonation with one finger of creamy off white head. Aroma is sweet malt cherries and oranges. Very nice. Flavor follows with hints of vanilla and some alcohol. Medium bodied. Nice beer. Picked up in Canterbury.

mikeyo1 (713) - Linköping, SWEDEN - MAY 10, 2014
Ordentligt med skum, tunnt bubblande vitt. Skummet har en tydlig smak av armagnac. Likaså doften, som i övrigt är torr och träig, med en hel del sherrayfat, karamell, vanilj, päron (armagnac) och en intressant ton av citronte, lite värmande alkohol. Liknande smak med torr träig & nötig efterbeska.

TET (2737) - Kaarina, FINLAND - MAY 3, 2014
Bottle no. 18804. A beautiful beer, dark red and slightly brown, a head is quite big and beige. The nose is rich of nuanceess and tastefull. Riped fruits, lots of perry, sweet apples, nice fructose, vanilla, also some berries and wood. Very fruitfull aroma. Taste start with lots of fruits, perry, plums, hint of alcohol and sherry that is only strenghtening the fruitness. Then dryer, some barrel. Medium+ bodied, powerfull and slow to drink, still quite fresh. Very interesting, it’s rare to find the beer that is so strong and fruitfull, at least the aroma is pure fruitcake. Tasts is not so fashinating than aroma but still very close to it. The great beer.
