look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Large shared bottle.

Spicy and dark fruit notes in the nose. Hints of brandy.

Body seems a bit light but is fairly smooth for the very high ABV.

Nice complexity. A bit boozy in the finish.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Batch #1, December 2013.

Appearance - Wow. It pours like fake milk in a cereal commercial. Murky reddish brown. Small khaki head. Thin collar.

Smell - Cognac. Dark caramel. Oak. Lots of brown sugar.

Taste - Viscous caramel. Cognac. Sharp fruitiness. Apples. Grape. Then brown sugar. Oaky finish. Thick syrupy sweetness. It's even a little hoppy.

Mouthfeel - This is thicker than any beer I've ever had. Medium low carbonation. Not very boozy, though.

Overall - This is serious. Good, but really sweet.
