4.25/5 rDev -2.5%
Served in a small snifter.
Essentiially black; excellent lacing.
Feel: excellent except for some high ABV harshness; near full body; very good, if relatively high (for style), carbonation.
Taste: Sweet up front; Rich and complex; dark roasted malts dominate the bitter/sweet aftertaste.
O: Outstanding. Improved with warming and more warming.

Poured from the bottle into a snifter glass at Smoke & Barrel DC, for the DC bottle share. From notes.
Really looks like brandy, with a great clear caramel color and amber body. No head presented.
Nose seems intriguing. Mild funk. Closed but a little subtle. Some hiding sweet caramel with a noticeable vinegar and acid. Not sure where this is going.
Palate hits with a giant mix of acid and caramel sweetness. Medium mouthfeel to let some of the malts carry around, but the tartness on this is just huge, with a big blast of acetic quality, which really doesn't mix with this thick caramel at all.
I don't think this is by design, this went somewhere else, it feels like there's a good brew hiding in here somewhere, but I don't even know what to think after drinking this.
