We bought a bunch of bottles, but they have it on tap as well. Appearance is very hazy, light brown, almost no carbonation, almost muddy looking, no lace on the taster glass. Smells very boozy, sweet, raisins, vanilla, figs, barrel. Taste is very boozy, the cognac and brandy come through up front, but it's also warm and smooth. Sits nicely on the tongue, the low carbonation creates a soft and musty feel that accentuates the strong brandy and cognac character. Definitely a slow sipper. Aftertaste is warm and buttery. Not many secondary flavors, mostly the spirits coming through strong. The malts are far behind the booze. All in all, an excellent beer. No need to age, tastes aged already. The word around me is that the bottles are less carbonated than draft. We'll see once we open a bottle.
Serving type: on-tap
