650 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottle # 278.

Appearance - Viscous black. Not much of a head. A few bubbles at the edges.

Smell - Lots of apple brandy. Chocolate. Oak.

Taste - Sweet caramel. Sugary brandy. Bitter chocolate. Extremely oaky.

Mouthfeel - Sweet and very oaky. Kinda harsh.

Overall - The barrel doesn't improve upon the base beer.

22oz, Bottle #782, Bottle date 1/25/13
Mini snifter

A: Pours black as night. Very dark. Initially a thin layer of light tan head. Alcohol feet are there.

S: Dark fruits. Light on the Apple Brandy compared to Gran Met. Basically the roast had taken over that aspect. Smells of oak and dryness. Barrel.

T: Up front, roasted malts. Getting some of those dark fruits. Dark chocolate. Not so much vanilla or caramel due to AB barrel. Finish is dry. Lingering dark chocolate.

M: Bigt full bodied and chewy.
