12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep amber. Medium off-white head. Thin collar.

Smell - Brandy. Kinda fruity. Molasses.

Taste - Molasses is still strong. Oak dominates more than the brandy flavor, but it has a bit of a fruity flavor. Wood and molasses in the back end.

Mouthfeel - Medium body, maybe medium heavy. Medium low carbonation.

Overall - Pretty good. I don't remember regular 4Elf. The molasses is a nice flavor.
