From a bottle, pours a dark mahogany brown with ruby red hues; decent head with good retention.

Nose is sweet, molasses, sugar, with some citrus notes and of course, lots of brandy and oak. It smells like this is another booze bomb from The Bruery. The flavors are sweet, candied green apples, brandy and oak notes, dark fruit, a little cocoa. It's warm down the throat, still way too boozy for me at 15%. If it dried out a little, it would be delicious.
