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.
