Le liquide a une robe brune. Un petit collet de mousse se forme. Une dentelle est observe. Au nez, les parfums rtis et chocolats sont fortement imprgns par ltrange dlicatesse du cognac. Les saveurs sont apprciables : la prsence de leau-de-vie est exubrante, les fruits sont dlicieux, les malts noirs appropris. En bouche, le liquide est enveloppant avec un ptillement juste et une texture liquoreuse. La finale se fait sur des notes chocolates qui senrobent dun cognac chaud et bien parfum. Merci Yan.

Boutip (6271) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 20, 2011
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a dark brown foamy head with great retention and some excellent lacing. Aroma of sweet malt with light cognac notes with well hidden alcohol. Taste is a great mix between some tar and some sweet roasted malt with well rounded cognac finish with very subtle fusel notes. Body is full with nice creamy notes and some good carbonation with almost no apparent alcohol. Very well brewed and a great improvement over the original beer which I was never a big fan of Cognac barrel were very well used and drinkability is up there with the level of complexity in this beer.

Bottle 375 ml
Aroma: lovely character dry softness that should exclude it self. Superior round aromas of chocolate , toasted barley and alcohol.
Appearance: dark brown going into black. Large tanned fine top, lace all is in. 4+
Body/Flavour/Palate: Full bodied, alcohol upfront , bitter sides, hints of raisin. Bottom sweetness. Finishing with more alcohol. Well composed but aroma promised another level.

Bouteille de 375ml. Bue en compagnie de Patrick. Bire brune fonce avec une mousse rsistante pour lalcool, surprenant ! Le nez est complexe, agrable, il dgage de beaux armes de cognac, de ft de chne et de petits fruits. La bouche est chaude, la saveurs de chocolat et de brandy sont biens prsents. La bouche est par contre moins complexe que le nez. Tout de mme un autre bon produit des lieux de la version en baril de scotch des Islay. 7+/10

Adenila (1560) - DENMARK - JUL 22, 2011
Black with a medium dark Brown head. Intense powerfull roasted malt aroma, sweet bakery products, dark suger and the cognac is also quite nice. Roasted bitter flavor, dry ashy, thick dark sugery sweetness. The palate is so thick and Rich, that the alchohol feels quite soft resulting in a, for me, nice balance. Really big brew.

Enormt stark doft. Stor smak av stbrnd kaffesump med tydlig fatkaraktr i eftersmaken. Lng och fin eftersmak, men kanske aningen het.

gyllenbock (8894) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 3, 2011
Bottle. Black with a small tan head. Heavy nose of coffee, roasted malt, licorice, alcohol. Not much carbonation with a thick and oily mouth feel. The taste was sweet withdark fruits, coffee, some vanilla and notes of cognac. Vinous and warming, the alcohol is there. I guess you either love or hate this beer, I liked it!

Thanks to Alex for this... pours dark black with a great light tan head, good retention and lace... nose is outstanding chocolate that is a bit bitter with wonderful cognac spirit notes, integrated perfectly, reminds of a Belgian chocolate liquor candy... the taste is equally nice, especially for the abv, the 17.5% is hidden completely, chocolate brownies with cognac... crush this, and soon
