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.
