Bottle shared by brian23456 and myself at our epic battle of the 12ozers tasting. A big, special thanks to ebay for providing this bottle... Split with some other upright BAs. Poured into snifter:

A - Nice dark brown with caramel ruby hues. No lacing, no head. Flat. What I expected.

S - Brandy, bourbon, maple syrup, caramel, brown sugar, toffee. Really smooth and delicious. You can tell this brew aged very well.

T - Follows the nose. Great taste. Sweet caramel and brown sugar. No burn from the barrel. The brandy mixes really well, but tastes a bit bourbony.

M - Just a tad of carbonation, but pretty smooth. Really no burn or heat from the barrel.

D - Went down really easy. Candy booze. I had to restrain myself just downing it. Really well aged and delcious. Wish I had a bottle of my own or they made more. A must try.

500ml bottle into a tulip. 2011 vintage

dark brown pour with a slight head. smell of brandy and sweet alcohol. taste is very sweet...but as intended with the brandy barrels. vanilla and caramel are dominant flavors as well. extremely smooth. as it warmed up it become much more alcohol apparent. very full bodied and definitely a sipper. carbonation low.

overall extremely enjoyable for experienced craft beer drinkers. loved it.
