Sample at Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2017, yellow session. Black color with creamy brown head. Aroma has fruit liquor, brandy and is quite spicy. Taste has old wood barrel, apple brandy, spicy but quite balanced overall. Another great imperial stout from Cycle.

650 mL bottle. Black body. Smells of apple, chocolate, cinnamon. Interesting. Tastes of cinnamon all over. Lots of brandy. Oak. Sweet with a nutty malt flavor. Heavy and alcoholic. Smells nice, but not quite Cycle’s best.

L: pours dark black with a finger of brown head lingers a couple minutes.
S: sweet chocolate and apple brandy. Big barrel on this one.
T: Smooth apple brandy barrel and cinnamon. There is some green apple in there too. Flirting with apple pie, but not as rich as needed to be elite.
F: so smooth, a bit too much carbonation for me though.

22oz bottle split with Lisa into two El Cat tulips.

Dark brown with head the disappears quickly. Not particularly aromatic with the apple brandy dominating but not huge. Some cracker and agave in there as well. Taste also falls a bit flat with the apple brandy taking the lead. More of the same brandy/agave character with a small spicy bite on the back end - that must be the cinnamon, though it isn't obvious. Pretty thin and slick, definitely lacking body, complexity, and depth. Not recommended.
