Tasted in a snifter from a 12 fl oz can on November 28, 2018. A small batch variant of 2018 Evasion conditioned in a cognac barrel with orange peel. Worth a try.

A new variant of Evasion for the 2018 release, aged in cognac barrels with orange peel. Enjoyed poured from a can into the branded 2018 Death & Taxes Day glassware. This was the variant I was most excited about, and I believe I had a better experience with it on draft than I am having now; in fact, it may be my least favorite version from this year's release.

I am normally a sucker for any sort of ageing in brandy barrels of any kind, but the barrel is not readily apparent on the nose. It only shows up as the beer approaches room temperature. The orange peel is subtle, these two factors making it the least distinctive variation of the lot. On the tongue, the main effect is to give the beer a very short, dry finish, with more of an impression of pithy bitterness than any sort of residual sweetness from the cognac or the fruit. Still pretty interesting and an enjoyable drink, but not at the same heights as the regular version.
