Wow. Strong, sweet an delicious. I've never had anything like it, but I want more. The aroma is unique, but pleasant. Pours a rich black with little to no head. The best thing about this beer is the taste, which the cognac enhanced unlike any bourbon barrel aged beer I have had.

This is an impressive beer that pours black with a nice little brown head. You can taste the delicious barrel aging in this strong and beautiful beer. If you like a strong, complex and wonderfully flavored beer this is one you must get.

You can taste cognac, caramel, chocolate, sugar and toffee.

Thanks to Mike from Indiana who sold this to me, I wish there were more out there to buy.

A - Pours motor oil black, stains the glass with a brown film, thin mocha head.

S - Chocolate, caramel, oak, and a strong, smooth congnac. The nose is very sweet, the the booze helps balance things out pretty well. Very well executed.

T - Cognac, caramel, chocolate, sugar and another sweet maybe a toffee. Sweet and smooth with a grea cognac taste which is different than any other barrel aged I've had. Amazing.

M - Rich, Full Bodied, Creamy and Smooth

O - This is an impressive beer that will definitely give pleasure to any beer enthusiast. I can see how some may not like the Cognac flavor and that's because they may not like Cognac!!! If you like beer infused with an alcohol, you will love this beer.

Served from bottle with standard pressure cap and poured into a beer snifter. My expectations were high being form 3 Floyd's and a new and exotic barrel aged style beer using the Cognac barrel. This beer delivers and the hype needs to grow.

A: Pours really dark black color beautiful head of great cream, fantastic thickness, and a impressive retention.

S: Rich with caramel, toffee and of course the cognac. What a rich and just unbelievable smell with the ingredient combinations.

T: Again, rich with caramel, toffee and of course the cognac. The flavors combine so nicely to give this beer an superb taste that is strong smooth and good far sipping through an evening. Wow. I mean just wow. This is unlike any bourbon barrel aged beer I've had and the cognac does something very special to the flavor. You have to try this. Very complex and subtle.

M: Smooth and wet. Rich. Creamy up front but the cream bleeds through to the end.

Overall: Just get this beer and experience something you have never experienced before. It is awesome and this one delivers.
