Tan head. Black in color.

Very thick. Sweetness from the brandy. Dark fruits, plums, cherries, figs. Oak. Vanilla. Chilis show, but seem a little faded. Chocolate and cocoa nibs.

Full bodied ends with a little roast to it.

Solid, but lairds apple brandy way better.

Pours viscous and no head to speak about, almost flat. Brandy is present for sure with no spice at all. Its thick and the stout itself has become undefineable. I cant distinguish flavor profiles. Its seems to have faded a bit over the years but still good.

Was able to enjoy this with a few fellow beer nerds at my house recently as a preamble to a Whale share the following day. This was an amazing brew! Nose on it suggested it was going to be super boozy but the palate was actually very smooth as the years mellowed it out IMO. The normal cinnamon finish that Huna as was muted by the Brandy and the Brandy barrel was the finish. Excellent!!
