Black with tan head. Thick.

Big Russian imperial stout. Molasses, raisins, chocolate, caramel. The apple brandy shows nicely and adds a huge layer to this beer. Light roast. Fairly smooth. Full bodied.

One of my most sought after beers and eagerly anticipated. Nose is oozy vanilla and Brandy, very nice. Taste is nearly all apple Brandy sweetness. Not much to round things out. Bit oily, lower carb, lots of barrel.

A fun beer, really excited to try, but largely single barrel note.

Westbrook Apple Brandy Siberian Black Magic Panther
8oz pour
On tap at the brewery


A: Jet black, opaque, slight browning on the edges, essentially no head or lacing 4

S: Lots of sweetness, roasted malt, chocolate, luscious fudge, coconut, very subtle barrel notes with oaky characters (although I wouldn't have guessed Apple Brady). Great nose 4.5

T: Apple brandy barrels are the first thing I get in the taste. It's quite sweet, in a good way. I also get roasted malt, less prominent cocoa, coconut, and oak. Wonderful. 4.5

M/D: Full bodied, a bit chewy, carbonation appropriately low, ABV very well masked, great drinkability. 4.5

O: Exceptional beer, one of my favorite Westbrook stouts to date. 4.75

This was just simply amazing. The smell was just like a sweet apple and its taste followed suit. This quite possibly beats the Ab Mexican cake variant but not by much.
