Small overpriced 250 ml I grabbed while in Paris. Drinking in my hotel room in Bruges. Pours pitch black with a small ring of mocha head on top. Aroma of anise, chocolate, and huge notes of boozy cognac. Flavor follows with cognac forward flavors, extremely sweet, just a hint of light Kopi coffee , a little chocolate vanilla swirl, and a good bit of anise flavor. This is insanely sweet and on the side of being a bit much, and without the full mouthfeel that I would want with something like this. Pretty rich mouthfeel but not thick enough, with lower carbonation and a long sweet cognac finish. Not bad, but definitely save this one for dessert. 250 mls is more than enough, and that's coming from someone who downed a full 750 of DB Hunahpu alone.

Backlogged from notes. Pours a lifeless deep black with no head. The smell is very heavy handed in the barrel department. Huge notes of cognac which brings char, oak, and ash to the table. Notes of smoke, leather, and tobacco also come through. Not getting much, if any, of the base beer. The taste starts sweet with earthy notes of Kopi Luawk coffee. Very boozy and barrel influenced, just not really getting behind this one. Mouthfeel is thick with medium carbonation and comes off as a bit syrupy. Overall, this beer is lacking balance. The cognac buries the base beer, and the Kopi Luwak is present, but does not meld with the cognac very well.

A: Black with almost no head, just a few brown bubbles.

S: Cognac, roasted malt, brown sugar and dark fruit in the nose.

T: Dark chocolate, cognac, smokey, creamy, coffee notes.

M: Full bodied and fairly smooth.

O: Get the regular Beer Geek Brunch Weasel, it's far better. The cognac barrels take away more than they add.
