4/5  rDev -2.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Semi-opaque dark murky ruby pour, with a decent head with no retention. Smells like dried fruit (raisins, figs), brewed coffee, chocolate. Tastes like prunes, cocoa, dark chocolate, cognac, cherries, white wine, stuff like that. Light body with medium carbonation, sweet and spicy (due to the alcohol) aftertaste.

Enjoyed at cafe Gollem in Antwerp on 30SEP15. Opted to splurge a bit and had two 0.25l glasses of this on draft, each at €6.70.

Served in a small tulip, it was a deep, opaque brown color. Couldn't tell what the carbo situation was, but it had a rocky, chunky tan head. The foam lasted well, with excellent lacework left behind. Aroma was of choco and alcohol, mocha, raisins, and molasses. Almost had a hint of bourbon, though it was aged in cognac barrels. Body was medium, and it had hardly any prickle at all. Could have been fuller, but it was still acceptable.

Tasted a little caramel with some mocha and choco at the outset. Then it was some raisins and currants marinated in cognac, the latter of which was easy to detect. Quite warming and pleasurable. Prosit!

Poured from a 375 mL bottle into a tulip. This was released in 2012 and has a date (I assume "Best by" of 10/10/16).

Appearance: Pours a muddy dark brown and leaves a finger of off-white head that lingers for a short while before leaving a layer atop the beer. (4)

Smell: Spicy cognac leads the way along with some Belgian yeast, raisins, figs, hint of licorice. (4.25)

Taste: Starts with the cognac and then moves into some dark fruits, a bit of caramel, some cloves and finishes a tad bitter. The cognac really helped this one out. (4)

Mouth-feel: Low to medium carb with a fairly watery, just a tad sticky, medium body. Finishes really smooth but a bit bitter and spiced. (3.75)

Overall: The cognac barrel had a lot of influence on this - and plays a big role in the flavor. Really drinkable, with not a whole lot else to go with the cognac, but that's fine for this one. Reminded me a bit more of a spiced brown ale then a quad. Tasty. (4.25)
