Bottle thanks to Deyhola. Pours very dark brown -almost black - with tan head. Nose and taste of brandy, roast chocolate malt, creamy milk chocolate, vanilla and oak. Medium body or slightly less than that for the style. A bit of brandy alcohol in the finish. brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - JUL 26, 2012
Thanks to Jeff for trading this one to me. Pours black in color with a small off-white head. Nose is full of brandy and vanilla with a bit of oak. Plenty of roast, dark fruit, and cocoa as well. The flavor is quite bold. A touch of booze but an overall enjoyable brandy and vanilla component. Strong roasted malt and dark chocolate with an undertone of dark fruit. This was really quite good.

Old brew, aged nicely. Very much barrel forward, very smooth and easy-goign. Sammy (12210) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 20, 2016
Smoke was significant, with some cherry and brandy in the finish. Had a few hours later and smoke eased off. Something different. Bottle from last summer trip. deyholla (11606) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 30, 2012

Bottle shared by b3shine. Pours a dark brown color with a small tan head. The nose is on the light side and has roasted malts, chocolate, apple brandy and a hint of coffee. The flavor has apple brandy, roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, some wood and a hint of vanilla. Body was on the thin side. We had this along side another apple brandy stout and it seemed to suffer a bit for it. GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 20, 2012
750mL on the RBSG bus. Rich bourbon and oak nose. Muddy deep brune pour with small mocha foam. Taste is very dry and over oaked. Mildly bitter and coffee/chocolate. Easy to drink. Nice enough.
