This has been a big want of mine for a while, cracked at the CCB share night, thanks again to rudzud.
Light fizzy head, no retention, super dark murky molasses color.
Nose dark malts brown sugar, toffee, caramel, etc, little brandy soaked raisin and fig, candy, etc, with light cognac fruity booze, little dark brown malt,
Taste is very sweet, candy malt, caramel, toffee and lots of toffee, into big cognac barrel, sweet fruity candy cognac, into mild brandy raisin and fruit, fig, arc, great cognac fruity booz. Fair hot booze, sift aged malt too, nice raisin and fig paste really come through, with a candied fruit too. Finish is sweet and sticky, more booze, cognac, candied fruits, etc.
Mouth is sticky sweet, lighter but decent carb, mild warming booze, little underwhelming mouth feel.
Overall great but too sweet, nice cognac and booze fruits, tasty, quite nice.

Shared with JLindros.
A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice slightly cloudy brown with a thin halo, very nice.
S - Aromas of cognac, light cardboard, faint malts, caramel. Really sweet smelling.
T - Taste is super sweet, sticky, cognac, malts, caramel, sweet brown sugar. Incredibly sweet, cloyingly so.
M - Mouthfeel is a bit syrupy lowly carbonated.
O - Overall this beer was tasty, albeit really sweet. The cognac is really restrained.
