Had this on tap during the 6th anniversary party.

Looks like brandy! Almost no head to it. Smells like barrel, oak, brandy, dark fruits, high alcohol.

Tasted a lot better than concentrated evil, allowed some of the brandy sweetness to help cover up the figgy/pruney solvent like memories of the base beer. Still had lots of alcohol heat though. Took a hot, bitter dark fruit blech and turned it into something worth savoring. Probably better suited for cold weather than a weekend in May.

A few ounces is good enough of this beer. Its simply a testament to the power of FiftyFifty's barrel program that Todd could turn this into something significantly more drinkable for me. (680 characters)
