The plum and blackcurrant aroma of fine brandy leaps out of the glass, complimented by the beer’s robusta coffee and dark chocolate nose. Silky on the palate and more fruit-forward than a typical barrel-aged stout, The Power Of Friendship offers raisins, toffee and prune flavors with cocoa powder and alcohol spiciness vying for attention in the background. Subtle oak flavor and tannins help add dimension and texture to this brandy barrel-aged treat.
