A-pour is a cola brown from the bottle to near black in the glass with some ruby red peeking thru a medium size tan head which is leaving a streaky lace along the pint

Bottle from Etre Gourmet. Served in a DryHop taster pint.

A - Ample dark tan foam settles to a thick cap, thicker collar, and splotchy lacework. Dark brown body with ruby transparency when held to the light.

S - Smells like a typical dry stout, with toast biscuit, toasted malts, roast, hint of smoke, and a touch of char and oak. Seems a bit sweeter than other beers of this style; guess that might be due to the Grand Marnier? There's some vanilla too, which could be either from barrel or malt bill.

T - The taste has a bit more fruity spirit flavor and oak, and the roast dominates the malt character. Not as acrid or burnt as you'd expect from a Mikkeller dry stout, but somewhat devoid of depth or flavor intensity in comparison to the aroma. Nothing bad here per say, but just kind of ho-hum.

M - Light, creamy body, with carbonation on the higher end of moderate. Dry and tannic finish. As expected, there's no alcohol.

D - The barrel-aging is pretty restrained, but the base beer is a pretty solid dry stout. It was quite easy to down the entire 375ml bottle. For the price it's disappointing, but on the whole it's a decent brew. Not sure why Mikkel thought barrel-aging this beer would be worth the time though.
