On tap at the Cajun Cafe. Served in a taster.

Appearance - Dark amber. Murky. Small khaki head.

Smell - Brandy aroma. Wouldn't have guessed apple brandy without being told. It is pretty sweet smelling though. Lots of caramel.

Taste - A ton of brandy. More appley here. Fruity flavors. Sweet caramel malt. Very sweet.

Mouthfeel - Very heavy. Sweet and syrupy. Medium carbonation.

Overall - The base beer is still prevalent, as this thing is still very sweet. The barrel adds a nice dimension though.
