No bottled on date, but I’m guessing in the 6 months to 1 year interval.

Nice motor oil black pour. Tan head of foam circles the glass and leaves minimal lace as it settles. Poured cold, so not expecting too much “stick” quite yet.

Sweet, dark chocolate, light roast coffee, malt, and an off predominance of Apple on the nose. If this was aged in Apple Brandy barrel I’d buy it, but I know it wasn’t and can just tell this has infected a litte.

Getting a little bit of chili heat initially among a predominance of bitter roasty coffee and light cacao nibs flavors. The bitterness lingers, along with a lightly acidic tartness. It actually manages to work well with the boozy warmth that the beer finishes with, but even while the flavors don’t taste as off as the nose was, it’s definitely still fallen off.

Smooth, a little thin, and with a sticky, warm finish. As I mentioned, slightly boozy and a hint of vinegar acidity from the infection.

I like brandy barrel-aged stouts in general, so this one piqued my interest, but I should have known better. Ham-flavored, smoky, with some over-the-top barrel notes that have no particular desire to integrate themselves into the rest of the beer. Evil Twin has a very hit-or-miss record for me in the barrel-aged variants department, but this one is a miss for me.

330 ml bottle, label says "Best Before Date: See Label" but I couldn't find any dates on there or on the bottle. Served in a snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Aroma is nice and mostly sweet, the brew smells like brandy, fudge, molasses, dark fruit, wood and roasted malt. Taste is almost like the aroma for the most part, with brandy, chocolate fudge, dark fruit, licorice, oak, molasses, bittersweet chocolate, roasted malt and earthy flavors. I think the aroma is sweeter compared to the taste of the beer. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's coating and smooth with a moderate amount of carbonation. I thought this was a good overall brew, certainly worth trying if you're into imperial stouts! $11.99 a bottle.

Pouring this from a 12 oz. bottle into a tulip glass. This beer pours out black with no highlights. It forms a thin caramel colored crown that settles in to being just an outer ring around the glass. The smell is hop presence and that same caramel apple presence that I for some reason got in the bourbon barrel aged variant too. The taste on this one however actual carries over from the nose with this presence, unlike the bourbon variant. It is nice and smooth but still seems to be too one dimensional for me with no bounce. Overall, I expected more from these bourbon and Brandy aged variants.
