Had this on tap during the 6th anniversary party.

Looks like brandy! Almost no head to it. Smells like barrel, oak, brandy, dark fruits, high alcohol.

Tasted a lot better than concentrated evil, allowed some of the brandy sweetness to help cover up the figgy/pruney solvent like memories of the base beer. Still had lots of alcohol heat though. Took a hot, bitter dark fruit blech and turned it into something worth savoring. Probably better suited for cold weather than a weekend in May.

A few ounces is good enough of this beer. Its simply a testament to the power of FiftyFifty's barrel program that Todd could turn this into something significantly more drinkable for me.

Lacks the appearance of beer. Just comes off looking like Brandy. Aroma of dark fruit and wafting alcohol.

Brandy flavors, tons of heat on the palate. Actually better than I expected. Warm up with this on a cold night. Still though, almost everything they barrel is better.

An appearance just like they poured you some brandy (you're a fine girl). No head. Smells like brandy, oak and alcohol.

A big improvement on concentrated evil. Brandy covers up the dark fruit/rubbing alcohol/nail polish vibe from the base beer. Lots of heat nonetheless. Definitely a winter warmer kind of sipper. A few ounces are cool, couldn't imagine delving any further or consuming a 22oz of this.
