550ml bottle poured into a snifter

A- pours a deep black color with a one finger foamy khaki head that has decent retention

S- bold notes of apple brandy, showing extended barrel aging; green apple, caramel, wet oak, milk chocolate, pear & butterscotch

T- taste follows the nose, bold barrel notes immediately hit, with notes of ripe apples, caramel apples, butterscotch & nutty notes. Light undertones of pear and orange from the barrel. The finish brings out roasted malt and chocolate from the base beer, as well as more caramel and apple on the finish

M- medium-heavy body with moderate carbonation, creamy mouthfeel and slightly warming finish

O- extending aging has added some awesome barrel notes, any fan of apple brandy will love this one

500ml bottle. Snifter glass. Dark black body, one finger mocha head. Light green apple, sweet spirit, milk chocolate, heavy roast, touch of espresso. Medium fuller bodied, good carbonation. Big beer with a good balance and a lot going on. The base beer seems to be a bit more roasty than I'd like.
