Bottle to snifter
750 ML C/C
Thanks to DaysintheWake for this bottle.
App- Poured out of the bottle a deep and rich brown color with a ruddy reddish/purple tinge to it. A very good and deep density behind it. The head was a nice 2 finger slight brown color with a good cling line down the glass.
Smell- I was a bit let down with the nose on this beer. It was almost pure malts. Alot of the spices and depth and layers I had heard about were gone. Most of the aromas were just the dark fruits and brandy. Not much else was there.
Taste- This was just okay. Better than average but feel that a fresh bottle is the way to go. The spices were lost on this and replaced by just the large malty flavors and dominated by the figs and the brandy.
Mouth- A thicker medium body with a low-medium carbonation. The figs and brandy are really all that remain on this one. The flavors are a bit one note and just thick on the residual flavors.
Drink- It was a nice idea to open this on Christmas. Shared with my brother in law. I thought it was okay. A bit let down that it didnt meld a little better but dropped off in the bottle. Maybe next release I can land a fresh bottle.
