Imperial stout aged in apple brandy barrels. Poured from a can into a Lost Abbey Teku. The pour is very dark - nearly black - but does allow some ruby red highlights to peek through. It has a single finger of coarse tan head with good retention for a barrel-aged beer. The nose is very complex. Lots of vanilla, cocoa, toasted oak, and roasted malt along with notes of pound cake, bread pudding, and a little banana.

Full body with a creamy feel and a big, bold, complex flavor with lots of everything. Sweet, rich, malty, boozy, you name it. This one is definitely not for the faint of heart! Huge notes of caramel, sweet malt, vanilla, and toffee greet you first. At mid-palate it gets boozy and rich, but not medicinal or hot, just pleasantly warming. At the back of the palate there is some dark fruit. All of this comes through on the finish, which leaves lingering flavors of caramel, rum, and dark fruit.

This is one big beer that really brings it. No way I could finish an entire can in one sitting. Definitely one to share with others.
