22oz wax top bottle poured into a tulip

A- pours jet black in color with a one-finger foamy dark khaki colored head that reduces to a ring around the glass

S- the brandy barrel is big on the nose and combines with the smoky notes of the base beer to give a truly unique aroma experience. The barrel gives dark fruit aromas of booze soaked raisins and figs, red grapes as well as wet oak, leather and a blast of cherry pipe tobacco. Undertones of the base beer pop through, adding smoke, maple syrup, chocolate syrup, pancakes, caramel and creamy vanilla

T- as with the nose, a huge blast of brandy hits the tongue immediately, giving notes of dark cherries, raisins, tobacco, some vinous red wine notes and soft wet oak. Mid-palate brings out the base beer, with the smoke popping through the barrel notes, along with chocolate fudge, brownie batter, sweet maple, even some fluffy pancake. The finish offers more brandy barrel, along with chocolate, smoke and creamy vanilla. Brandy and chocolate on the linger

M- medium body with moderate carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel that turns creamy into a velvety, slightly warming finish

O- Original Morning Wood is one of my favorite beers of all time, this variant ranks right up there with it. I wasn't sure how the brandy barrel would play out, but it completely transforms this beer. Outstanding
