Pour is brownish black with a light brown tight head. Nose is big, lots of brandy and wood with chocolate and some light malt sweetness. Brandy makes a hint sweet but nice nose. Body is thick but thins in the finish, creamy and a hint slick on the back of the throat. Flavor is roasty, gets a touch acrid, sweet whiskey and a fair amount of barrel.

Looked much like its companions, opaque black in color, topped with a half finger of brown head that sank to a wispy layer of bubbles, dotting the glass with random lacing. Roasty aroma, dark malts, cocoa, toasted oak, light herbal and fruit scents. The apple brandy was a bit subdued, which I think worked well for this particular beer, balancing out whatever roastiness was present, flavors of oak and cocoa, with a slight twist of apple. Body on the fuller side of medium, mouthfeel not quite as robust as the Pappy variety. Nice overall, and I think all of these have aged enough...the time to drink them is [arguably] now.
