Finally putting in a rating for this after having it a few times. I guess you could say this would cover all of my experiences with it. A large tart nose thats quickly robbed by a burning bourbon. Pours very black with minimal head. When fresh, its almost a bourbon stout with a hint of cherry, and when aged, its a muddle of cherry and smokey bourbon. I think i prefer it fresh so the flavors dont overlap and get in the way of each other. The bourbon barrel used is a unique flavor and smell. Palate is cream and thick. I think i liked the regular cherry stout more, because of its simplicity and complex at the same time, but this really is a great beer on its own.

Bottle thanks to Russell. Pours a dark brown with small beige head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is wood, booze, vanilla, cherry skin. Thin mouthfeel with syrupy cherry, dark chocolate, wood, light boozy finish. Very good.

Bottle shared thanks to JBPortland ! Pours a rich burnt umber color with a finger of tight bubbled khaki foam. Nose is a bit hot of the bat but settles into a chocolate cake, bourbon soaked cherry pie combination. The palate is smooth and lush. Big roasted cocoa, coconut, sweet cherry pie filling, bourbon heat. Really delicious and well balanced flavors !
