One of the best stouts I've had. The nose is apply brandy with the taste blend of chocolate malts and brandy. Beautifully balanced. Alcohol is well hidden.

1/30/16 bottling date, 6 months old or so

A: Pours black with a very tall and dense dark brown head. Good head retention as it lightens up and very slowly begins to fade away. No real sign of lacing, however.

S: Yowza. Strong apple brandy right off the bat. Lots of chocolate and vanilla as well. Very boozy and sweet smelling.

T: Damn. Big sharp apple brandy up front and it is DELICIOUS. Tons of chocolate, nay PURE FUDGE follows with an underlying current of vanilla sweetening it all up. Tons of dark fruit in the finish with more of that apple brandy, less sweet now and more stinging. A touch of leather in the aftertaste. Some fruity alcohol harshness but nothing major, it helps cut all the sweetness in fact.

M: Big, heavy, super sweet and plenty of belly warmth.

O: One big, sweet and fruity stout for sure. Absolutely wonderful apple brandy just transforms this beer into an amazing sipper. Cannot overstate how sweet or boozy it is but it's worth it.
