Bottle at home, 9th October 2015. Pours dark amber, pretty clear after a year or age. Aroma is liquor, malt, pleasant. Taste is sweet, but off set by cognac liquor notes. Tasty barrel beer
ClubGonzo (5683) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 29, 2015
On tap @ HaandFestival 2015. Cloudy light mahogany-hued orange body with a small off-white head. Nose is nuts, nougat, caramel, cognac, wood and hints of raisins, figs and biscuits. Taste is brown sugar, nuts, red fruits, cognac, wood and hints of raisins and figs. Full body, medium to high carbonation. Fair enough, but the base beer isn’t quite good enough to justify the barrel aging. Stuu666 (16086) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 27, 2015
