This is one heavy beer. Tonnes of brandy, oak, caramel, leather. Nose also has spices. Thick and heavy, almost syrupy. It's pretty great, but about as undrinkable as it gets- boozy and heavy, a bit of an ordeal. Great for a small amount- but I can't drink it for too long!

S: Caramel, spices, oak, vanilla, toffee - wonderful
T: Following the nose, leather, tobacco
F: Full bodied, good carb
O: Superb, complex, alcohol well hidden, worth the wait
