COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This dark rich ale is incredibly complex. Notes of dark fruit, caramelized sugar, toffee, raisins, and black pepper play against a sweet vanilla flavor from the oak and a round satiny finish from the hint of brandy left in the wood.

Poured from bottle. Deep, dark reddish pour. Boozy, but nicely so. Caramelly, almost syrup but not syrup sweet. Almond finish.

Assuming this is the cognac one. Had it on draft. Notes of balsamic without the sourness, very deep and complex brew.

Tap @ The BeerMongers... Poured dark brownish/mahogany with a thin head. Notes of ripe fruits, prunes and raisins along with oak on the nose. The characters in the aroma came through in the flavor. Soft mouthfeel. Carbonation was just right. Some sweetness, toffee, caramel, toasted malts. Wood and spirit booziness, along with deep fruity esters and Belgian yeast. A little acid came through but just a touch that hit the spot. This was delicious.

rougeau13 (3195) - Richmond, Texas, USA - FEB 4, 2013
Very dark brownish; lacing, frothy tan head. Aroma of wood, dark fruit, cocoa, and toast. Taste is woody and moderately sweet (much easier to drink than most quads), with a touch of bitterness. Medium bodied; smooth carb; well masked alcohol despite a slight liquor flavor.

On tap at Jupiter Sour Sunday. Pours dark brown with a reddish tint, a thin beige head and a brandy aroma. There is a sweet molassed flavor with a nice mellow finish.
