look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

12oz into a riedel snifter

A dark cola brown, little to no head, nice crown of bubbles, scattered islands, very pretty

S lovely, big cognac, vanilla, dark dark chocolate, bakers chocolate, licorice, lemon peel, oak, bitters, cherry, other berries... Tis beer is super complex! There are several flavors I can't identify.

T phenomenal. This is very very cognac and brandy forward. Lots of licorice, vanilla, coca, big dark cherries, brandy and cognac oak, lite powdered sugar, light coffee, sweet malt, brown sugar, cane sugar, Cabernet grapes, several other flavors that I cannot identify. A lot of cherry.

M thick and full bodied, very light carbonation, smooth

O this beer is phenomenal, I dare to say its as good as Leon, sweet stout and other ba beers from ccb. I may have to say its the best ba beer from ccb yet. Exceptional. Another unbelievable drink from ccb.

Poured from a bottle in to a Hill Farmstead stemmed glass. Holy bat shit Batman, this is the bomb!

A- I'm color blind but it looks pretty black to me with almost no head and very little carbonation climbing up the glass.

S- Cognac/Brandy soaked prunes, sweet grape must almost port like, dried mission figs, medjool dates, brown sugar, have I died and gone to heaven?!?

T- Much like the nose the first sip gave me dried fruits soaked in cognac and brandy, a lot of that dried stone fruit. I also get a chocolate milk with cherries type of thing going on, this is an extremely complex drink for sure.

M- This is the only category in which i can't give Capricho #5 a perfect score, and thats only because I've become accustomed to the motor oil thickness of CCB stouts, but none the less this beer is full bodied and silky smooth.

O- Probably the the best CCB beer I've had to date, thanks CCB for showing my palate who It's daddy really is.
