The beer is pitch black with a thin beige cap. The aroma brings rich, roasted malt, chocolate, oak, booze, and cognac notes. Sweet cognac flavor goes beautifully with the huge imperial stout. I've yet to meet a cognac barrel-aged beer I didn't enjoy. This is no exception. Absolutely terrific stuff.

S - Chocolate, caramel, and a load of sweet cognac presence that gives it both sweetness and a slight alcohol presence

T - Chocolate, syrupy sweetness, and caramel give it a ton of sweetness; yet it doesn't get up to being too sweet as there is a slight alcohol presence that balances it out.

M- Thick syrupy body with a slight chalky chocolate presence to it as well as some light surgery sweetness 4.

O - This is a pretty sweet DL Variant as the alcohol has seemed to fade and left this as a sweet Cognac stout.
