look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a bottle shared with my best beer buddy Abbbp into a snifter.
Appearance: Jet black motor oil with a small coffee milk head. Leaves just the thinnest of crowns after it dissipates, but does leave considerable lacing.
Smell: Lots of dark fruits and molasses, it smells thick, and almost like a barleywine. Alcohol is evident too.
Taste: The brandy is strong in this one. Sweet, dark chocolate, with the brandy coming through heavily on the tail end. Molasses, lots of dark fruits. Vanilla too. I can definitely taste the calvados too, it’s sweet and vaguely fruity in a way distinct from the dark fruit malts. The calvados gets stronger as it warms up. This is fantastic.
Mouthfeel: This may be the thickest beer I’ve ever drank. It’s as close to motor oil as I could imagine. Low carb, very very sticky. Long linger.
Overall: My first apple brandy aged beer and I’m loving it. A truly delicious stout base just made that much better by the fantastic barrel characteristics. Westbrook knows what they’re doing.
