Tyranena has been coming up with some really interesting enjoyable brews lately. High-Class Broad is no exception. Pours a clear garnet That looks black if there's no light directly in the background. A 1+ finger ecru head formed on the pour that fell to a skim coat and thick ring around the glass. Leaves sticky drink lines after each sip.

Toasted malts with a solid dosing of hazelnut kick off the aroma. Rich vanilla wafts in and out along with the brandy. Figs and a touch of molasses accent things perfectly. This is High-Class.

Flavor is hand in hand with the aroma but with some added layers. Toasted bready malts and that very welcomed dosing of hazelnut start things off and are present throughout. Cream and a mild roasty bitterness come through mid-palate. All of a sudden that wonderful brandy barrel aging comes throuhg. Hints of oak, vanilla, and of course that semi-sweet brandy dance around, one always flashing quickly stronger than the others.

Body is on the heavier side of medium and extremely creamy. Velvety smooth with mild carbonation lets this beer slide along the tongue incredibly smooth.

This is an easy beer to put away but I can see the barrel aging becoming overbearing after awhile. Which is common in barrel aged beers no matter how good they taste.

Another excellent beer from Tyranena. If I could pick any brewery to get my hands on all releases, right now at this point and time, it would be Tyranena. They're beers are unbelievably unique and delicious. Keep up the good work.

Yet another from the TipTop collection. Thanks, man!!!

A: Roan colored, slightly cloudy, but with a fine head that lasts forever.

S: Caramel with brandy-infused cherries, hints of wood, smoky vanilla, toffee, and candied fruits. Not at all overpowered by the barrel.

T: One of the best barrel-aged brews I've had strictly from an integration of beer and wood standpoint. Starts with a slight back-of the-tongue bitterness, then a well-blended melange (Like that word? I had to look it up) of vanilla, toffeeish malt, some dark fruits like you'd find in a bowl at Christmastime (ripe black cherries and dates?), and a balanced hint of alcohol. Not at all cloying - chewy but clean. Finishes with a velvety balance of all of these flavors, very fine carbonation... fine, fine brew.

A - Nice clean brown body that shows a brilliant garnet color when brought up to the light. Starts with a decent sized beige head that is a bit fizzy and is now a ring around the glass.

S - Wow, this is different. Not like the normal bourbon oak smell at all, the Brandy barrels bring something completely different. Sweeter. Caramel and bready malts. Vanilla and cherries. Big tannins.

T - Rich caramel up front. Charred wood. Big sweet vanilla laced in sweet alcohol. Slight black pepper spiciness. Searching deeper I find some black cherry and maybe a touch of fig. Very pleasant.

M - On the high end of medium bodied. Super smooth carbonation.

D - Goes down very easy. Nice barrel aged beer in that the barrel compliments it nicely rather than overpowering it.
