11.2 oz. bottle Courtesy of SomethingClever, thank you beer Buddha!

This brew pours accordingly to the style, Nice deep black body, khaki head and lacing. Alcohol legs are present. Looks pretty legit. Time to get the fumes. Dense roasted malts and some brown sugar sweetness. Deep inside is notes of vanilla bean, cocoa spice and booze tickles the nose hairs. Smells pretty par to the style. The flavor is just as great and intense. First waves of roasted malt goodness with residual sugars to help accent the roast. Nice chocolate flavors with a subtle vanilla cream flavor, tastes like an Oreo Cookie that was soaked in Rum and Coffee. This finishes dry, boozy with a lingering bitterness. Aftertaste is of Cookies and tobacco. The feel on this brew is full bodied, creamy smooth with soft carbonation.

Overall: I like this better than I thought I was going to. I really thought it was going to be like Vanilla Shake's ultimate end. Yet this is hella enjoyable. The booze is actually a part of the beer to make it balanced. It's not an out of place booze that leaves it too dry with alcohol burn. The bitterness is lingering which I'm ok with, yet one might say it's too abrasive. The rest of the flavors are very enjoyable each with a story to tell. This brew is recommended.

Woo hoo looking forward to this one. Thanks Dave.

The beer appears near black with a half inch of head the color of wet sand on the beach. Aromas include dark chocolate, a large my bill, Danish roast. Super malty and thick with a healthy roasted malt presence, followed by bitter chocolates and a touch of warming heat in the finish. Cognac George is one of my favorite stouts, and while this beer lacks that amazing complexity, it's still damn good.
