2.75/5 rDev -33.4%
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.
