Bottle: Poured a hazy dirty copper color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and light lacing. Aroma of light Cognac notes with balanced sweet malt. Taste is a nice mix between some Cognac notes with well balanced sweet notes with a solid malt backbone. Light dry fruit esters are also pleasant. Body is quite full with medium carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Nice drink to end the evening.

I had the pleasure of enjoying a bottle of this brew at Beer Table in Brooklyn. This is a mahogany colored brew very little head. The aroma is a collection of earthy, oaky smells and fruity alcohol esters. Leather and tobacco also seem to be in the mix. More of the same on the palate. Tartness and earthiness mix very nicely with fruity notes. There is depth and complexity to this thing. A wonderful after dinner brew. A very good and unusual brew.

Bottle into an Old Engine Oil snifter. Thanks to Tony for sharing!

A: Still reddish-orange body. Pretty mediocre.

S: Sweet, grape-heavy, malty, and great. Lovely brown sugar and alcohol, with the latter being well within reason for 15%. Enjoyable in the extreme.

T: Follows the nose: rich malt, sweet dessert wine, and some dark fruit. Delightful.

M: Smooth, slick, flat. All right.

O: A bit of carbonation would have helped hugely, but otherwise this was stunningly good. Highly recommended.

Cheers!
