This beer hits every right spot for me. Perfect carbonation, perfect amount of barrel, not too boozy. Great brandy flavor. Super apple-y. This was my 1457th beer and perhaps one of my top ten ever. I hope they release more of this in their archive sales. I will buy all I can.

Pours a deep murky brown, big dark dried fruits (dates & raisins in particular) on the nose, caramel, toffee, vanilla as well. Big brandy right up front on the taste, but in a mature not too sweet kind of way, finishes smooth with hints of vanilla and caramel. At almost four years old, this has held up extremely well, and dare I say improved. Bodes very well for the others in set I have sitting in the cellar.
