look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A: Black as hell, viscous, with a small dark brown head with a decent retention. Looks heavy.

S: Powerful flavors from the cognac barrel ageing come first, oak, booze, vanilla, chocolate and coffee.

T: Roasted malts, coffee, grapes, oak. Vinous with a bitter chocolate aftertaste and a huge alcohol backbone. Finishes dry.

M: Sweet and silky. Leaves a creamy palate.

O: A bit straight and boozy, still very nice. Would buy more if it were not so pricey.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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.

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

Pours an inky black, with notable carbonation and a burnt tan colored head, of about a quarter-inch. The nose on this is magnificent, with dark fruit esters, molasses, port wine, roasted malt, and light coffee. As I take a drink, I am almost getting chills over how good this is. Before I even comment on the taste I am giving this a perfect five for this palate-coating, creamy, velvety mouth feel. Very heavy bodied. It doesn't get any more luscious than this folks. Now, for the flavor, I am experiencing a dominant and ultra bitter baker's chocolate taste, black coffee, perhaps some Sambvca, and a sharp cognac, in a unique opposition to one another. The actual taste of the cognac is much more subtle, but the bite is there... For the finish, a light milk chocolate actually presents itself somehow. Overall, I enjoyed the hell out of this brew, as I have with their Beer Geek Breakfast as well. Worth the price - don't hesitate to pick this one up!
