750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Inky, glass-staining black body. Standard fare from Cigar City stouts. Mocha head. A thin collar remains.

Smell - I love cognac barrels. Rich oak and vanilla notes. Cognac. Dark chocolate and coffee come through from the malts.

Taste - Very sweet, I suppose I shouldn't be surprised. The cognac is less prominent here, but the vanilla persists. Lots of coffee and dark, fudgy chocolate. And then the lactose hits. Argh.

Mouthfeel - The lactose is intense. Thickens the beer. The cognac balances out the sweetness pretty well.

Overall - I love everything about this except the lactose, which I notoriously dislike.
