A sweet nose greets the adventurous in this marriage of our Black Betty Russian Imperial Stout and 50 year old American Brandy barrels. An elegantly pleasant surprise wakes the palate which migrates from a hint of Brandy into the wonderfully lingering roasted malt character.

Pretty embarrassing that Im just now getting around to tasting some of the best of what my state has to offer. Sexy Betty earns her name by pouring an opaque pitch black. Coffee and cocoa aromas. Roasted/toasted barley character. Boozy and bittersweet chocolate. The brandy barrel influence is there but it doesnt overpower this beer. Some subtle vanilla and molasses as well. Sexy indeed.

Ernest (7481) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 5, 2016
Bottle. Head is initially large, frothy/creamy, brown, fully lasting. Body is black (non-opaque, flashlight tested). Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, dark chocolate), with notes of vanilla, marshmallow, alcohol, light note of oak. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Full body, creamy texture, soft/lively carbonation, moderately to heavily alcoholic. Relatively drinkable for an 11% impy, but the nose is pretty simple and uninspiring. Nice appearance and mouthfeel (if a bit too burning) help a bit, but this just doesnt rise about "decent".

AWISLguy (2715) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 9, 2016
750ml bottle from the Malt Shoppe in Tosa, shared with bananabi11. Fresh - not sure that is ideal, but we were anxious to try. Sweet cognac, especially in the nose. Also nose has caramel and some smoke. Taste follows with the sweet caramel, light nut and some raisin/grape all sitting on a solid sweet cognac base. There is meat smoke weaving in and out, but it is not a significant presence. Some alcohol. This was quite enjoyable. Equivalent - in a different way - to the quality of the base brew. Nice! 14.7

Bottle/Fest. A- Malty, cocoa. A- Black color, black liquid, tan head. T- Malty, cocoa. P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, malty finish. O- Not complex or fulfilling at all. Quite mundane actually.
