4.35/5 rDev +4.6%
Bottle 293 of 564
Poured into a Three Floyd’s teku, and served at approx.. 50F
Pour: Pitch black with a finger and a half deep khaki head. Recedes to a rim and leaves no lacing. (5)
Smell: Vanilla is really evident from the first whiff. Sweetness leans more towards toffee than caramel. Definite cognac notes, but amazingly does not overpower or lend a booziness – just a clean cognac presence. Some dark fruits mingle in the back. (4.5)
Taste: Opens with a deep cognac sweetness characterized by dark fruits and toffee. Slight vinous taste as well, much like a port wine. As the cognac subsides, vanilla and chocolate linger on the back of the tongue. As the glass warms, the cognac presence stays longer before the chocolate notes enter. Really, really nice and pretty out of the box (4)
Mouthfeel: This beer really excelled here. No boozy burn at all, which was my main concern opening this so soon. Carbonation is truly like silk – simply slides over your palate. I would define it as “buttery.” A definite sipper. (5)
Overall: I was incredibly impressed by this beer, when I went in expecting a solid offering or a miss. Absolutely exceeded my expectations. If I could, I would definitely get this beer again. (4.5)

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottle # 219 of 564.
Appearance - Black. Small khaki head. Medium collar.
Smell - Super strong cognac. Fruity and boozy. Kinda smells like a brandy, which makes sense.
Taste - Chocolate behind a hefty fruity character. Oak. Vanilla. Sweet brandy flavor. I get none of the lactose.
Mouthfeel - Medium body, not too boozy. Strong barrel though.
Overall - I'm glad I can't taste the lactose. Really intense barrel.

Big thanks goes out to cmrillo for sharing this one during the One Year Anniversary of My Wreck Tasting! Bottle #524 of 564! Served from bottle into a Crooked Stave ‘Crooked Line’ tulip. Poured pitch black with a half finger tan head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, apple, sweet alcohol, wood, fruit, and spice. The flavor was of sweet malt, wood, sweet alcohol, fruit, spice, and apple. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a fairly good brew. The barrel definitely added a very nice level of complexity to this one. However, it did cover up a lot of the base brew if I am honest. This hurt its score slightly if I’m honest, but this was still a solid brew. Definitely worth your time if you get the chance to try it.
