On tap at the brewery. Served in a goblet.
Appearance - Black with a thin but persistent khaki head. Leaves moderate lacing.
Smell - At first whiff, it's apple. The more I smell it the more the base beer comes out and I get less barrel. Roasted chocolate malt. Seems in conflict with the apple, but I don't mind.
Taste - Here the base is much stronger at the start. Very toasty at first. Very little sweetness. Chocolate malt. The barrel yields a slight apple flavor at the beginning and comes back with a vengeance in the finish. Apple brandy flavor surrounds the back end in a mix of chocolate and appley booze.
Mouthfeel - Almost no alcohol to it. It's low in ABV and it seems like the barrel overwhelms the beer in the finish
Overall - I'm still not the biggest fan of apple brandy barrels. Barleywines seem to take to them the best. This is all over in flavor, which doesn't make it bad, just unfocused.
Serving type: on-tap
