    12oz bottle -

    Quite the stunner in the 12oz bottle. I'm usually on the side of "the bigger the bottle, the better the beer" when compared to the 12oz and the 22oz/750ml bottle, especially when bottle fermented. This had a high wow factor for me. A deep, vinous nose with leather and tobacco with just the lurking of tartness there. The flavors of toasted sugar, minerally yet layers of leather and dark fruits are easily found. Very complex with a depth of flavor that I really enjoyed.

    The barrels used, though still making this a totally different beer than the dubbel base, complemented (or supplemented the base) very very well. The brandy was subtle but prevents the sour tannic aspects of the red wine barrels to completely overtake things. What you are left with is a very highly drinkable moderately tart and funky beer with a firm malty base and hints of belgian yeast and sweet brandy. No hint of booziness. Quite good. (For approval purposed and to verify barrel percentages, check the photos for 9/28 from Sierra Tap House facebook page as there is a picture of the keg collar).
