Huge thanks to Urbancaver for scooping this one up for me.
The beer ours jet black with a very dark brown, bubbly head that dissapates quickly. A really unique head.
The aroma is sweet to say the least. Burnt sugars, roasted malt, chocolate syrup, a little bit of wood and char. Man, this is pretty tasty. Sweet on the front end, but a smoky, charred character and some dry wood run right through the middle. The finish is long with a some fusel alcohol and cognac. A nice beer. Complex, sweet, smoky, charred, rich, and somewhat taxing on the palate after about 12 oz.
The body is heavy, damn near perfect actually. Low carbonation makes the beer coating in the mouth but never too much. Overall a tasty beer. I'd like to try more Cognac barrel aged beers and I enjoyed this one a lot. Thanks Cam.
