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.

Pours pitch black with a large tan head. Smells of chocolate, coffee, dark fruits. Taste is chocolate, wine-like, fruity, coffee, hints of boozy sweetness. Full-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Nebraska Reserve Series Sexy Betty finishes with a hint of alcohol heat.

2014 bottle, popped the cap and imidiately you smell the brandy. Pouring the first glass there is quite a head. Lots of liquor and toasty goodness. Figs and licorice are dominate. Love this!!!

From notes. Enjoyed this one at the Brew Crew Bash in Ann Arbor on May 21. This one was poured from a 22 oz bottle. I have high hopes for this one, as I love cognac aged stouts! The pour is a jet black, viscous and oily with a thin ring of dark brown head that thins out as the beer warms. The aroma is good. There is a cognac sweetness right up front, with notes of chocolate, vanilla, dark fruits and, a little woodiness. There is just a light presence of booze, but the sweetness on this is good. The booziness toward the back end is a little off-putting. The flavors are better. The booziness fades, and you’re left with a sweet big stout. The chocolate, vanilla, and woodiness balance great. The cognac offering and a light roastiness are really balanced and delicious. The mouth feel is thick and chewy with a soft carbonation that really coats the mouth. The aftertaste is sweet chocolate, vanilla, and a light booziness to work the sinuses. This beer is spectacular.

Pretty embarrassing that I’m 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 doesn’t overpower this beer. Some subtle vanilla and molasses as well. Sexy indeed.

One of the best beers that i have spent some coin on. It pours very dark with a nice colored head. Smells like hints of brandy, chocolate and slight fruity notes. Taste of chocolate with coffee notes, slight fruit, slight oak and brandy. Pretty strong brew so it was a sipper. Great beer.

In a big bottle...poured in a Val Dieu chalice. Pours black with large brown head and lace. Aroma of vanilla, milk chocolate, dark roasted malts. Flavors of malted milk balls, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, carob, tobacco, oak, brandy, dark roasted malts. Overall very flavorful with a nice balance between sweetness, bitterness and a brandy barrel bite.

Even though it’s slightly stronger than Black Betty, there is less of a boozy character in this one. The barreling is mellow but well integrated. Hints at fruit and oak and booze, but the roastiness of the stout and even the hops come through nicely. A hair under Black Betty...between 4.3 & 4.4, but due to the subtle nuances at play here, I’ll give it the higher nod. Supposed to be beer 5k, just a few hundred late :)"

this was delicious. What an incredible imp stout. Tons of everything you want, roast, ash, brandy notes, and big rich body. Perfectly made.
