COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Hoping for a little more sweetness but this is solid stuff. In our beer world so full of bourbon barrel everything, Sexy Betty brings a distinctive and welcome character to the imperial stout table.

Perhaps the edible equivalent version of the song, this is big, tight and focused. Very robust, full bodied. Perhaps not as over flowing with flavour as some of the top top tier RIS, but this is a Rasputin clone with bigger balls than he had.

Sample to taster at FoBAB 13 from notes. Pours a dark brown to black in color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malts, chocolate, earthy bitterness, caramel, dark fruit, brandy barrel is well integrated with the base beer.

Nice change of pace with the brandy lending lighter fruity notes than the thick vanilla of bourbon.

mrjez (538) - Osaka, JAPAN - OCT 9, 2016
Tap at Yellow Ape. Near black with a light tan head. Sweet and boozy aroma, brandy really leaping out, some chocolate, rich malt. Deep rich flavour of malt, the brandy is more than a hint, and masks other flavours a bit. Is has nice spritz in the feel backed by a full body but theres a booze warmth that almost burns. Maybe brandy is not my thing.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4805) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 7, 2016
Tap at Yellow Apes 4th Anniversary Event. In the glass its a deep brown with a molasses, rich chocolate and oak aroma. Smooth bodied and richly sweet but it retains an easy drinkability. A very well balanced BA beer.

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.
