A big thanks to supercolter to opening this last night. I had poor luck with getting an intact growler.

A- Pours a deep black with little carbonation.

S- The base beer is present with notes of dark chocolate, chili, cinnamon, vanilla, brown sugar and roasted malt. Caramelized apples and notes of brandy also present.

T- Taste follows suite with caramel dipped apples, dark chocolate, spicy chili's, cinnamon, vanilla beans, roasted malt, oak and a bit of heat from the brandy.

M- Practically no carbonation with a thick syrupy body. A small amount of heat from the chili's and abv at the end.

O- Was very impressed how the Apple Brandy barrels complimented the base beer. The best Cigar City offering I've had. Wish there was a bit of carbonation, but overall, a fantastic spiced stout and something I've been looking to try for a long time.

Thanks again, Jeff!
