Thanks to Skuter for sharing this one at his tasting.

Batch 6.

Pours a murky orange-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Tiny chunks of sediment are seen floating around in the beer after the pour. Smell is of toasted malt, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, candied fruit, tawny port, and alcohol aromas. Taste is much the same with toffee, candied fruit, tawny port, and slight cardboard flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of wood bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with fantastic smells and tasty but slightly oxidized flavors.

Batch 12 - 91% Bourbon Barrels - 9% Cognac Barrels

A - Murky maple syrup color with floating yeasties. Very little tan head.

S - Sweet with dark fruits, figs & raisins, oak, brown sugar, spicy alcohol, light cognac notes.

T - Sweet malt with ripe dark fruits, caramel, brown sugar, spicy alcohol. Cognac is more noticeable than aroma with light bourbon notes. Very sweet and boozy but it plays well together.

M - Full body with low carbonation. Slightly sticky and syrupy.

D - A bit boozy but I like it. The cognac adds a nice touch.
