Pours opaque black with a half inch beige head that fades completely. The smell is of oak, dark chocolate and vague fruit. The taste is mostly dark chocolate with notes of oak, and apple brandy. Medium texture with low carbonation. World class.

2016 I believe, .... poured from a bomber, dark black with thin khaki head.... smell is dark chocolate brownie with sweet apple alcohol notes.... taste is dark chocolate brownie batter, with a sightly sweet boozy apple finish, then more dark chocolate, and heat from the alcohol---not overpowering but definitely present....some molasses and dates in their also.... powerfully concentrated and intense--something of a sipper, and very well-done....reminds me of Pugachev cobra!

2015. Poured from a bomber into a snifter, the beer is jet black and oily thick, with a low profile, bubbly, dark tan head that quickly recedes into a thin halo. Aromas of rich brandy and booze forward, milk chocolate, roasted coffee, tangy toffee sweetness, woody highlights, and some sweet cream character, too. Very rich and inviting nose. Flavors are smooth, rich, and creamy forward, with a solid balance of creamy milk chocolate, subtle roasted coffee, sweet and boozy apple brandy, subtle wood spice and char, hints of smoke and earth, and some solid rich molasses and toffee in the backbone. The end of the palate is tied off nicely with a solid bolt of the apple brandy booze and warmth, which ties off all of the richness into a very drinkable package very nicely. Velvety smooth, chewy, and bold, this beer is massive, but cascades over the palate in a very drinkable manner. The aftertaste is more of the darker and bittersweet components, like chocolate and coffee, but with continuing notes imparted from the apple brandy barrel. Smooth, slow, creamy finish, with a solid warmth building at the end. Great beer.

Resolute base is awesome. The apple brandy resolute was just a little boozy fresh from the tap. Had on resolute day and on a separate occasion at the brewery. Sitting on two bottles for at least a year to see if the booziness mellows out.
