tectactoe (1507) - Michigan, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Tap: Swampy, ruby tinted brown with lazy tan bubbles on top. Aroma of sweet cherry, a little booziness, & a coating of caramel, toffee, & mild oak drizzled around. Taste has semisweet & semi-tart cherries, almost like cherry pie filling. Notes of molasses, anise, caramel, & toffee are also present. Barrel notes are light, only some mild oak & vanilla, but the booze is apparent. Lingering alcohol, caramel, & lightly sweet cherries in the finish, like boozy cherry candy.

flatmatt (1080) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUL 27, 2014
On tap at MBGSF 2014. Caramel pour with an off-white head. Cherry, toffee, and caramel aromas. Flavor is just like the aroma, with a little juicy tartness. Its quite nice.

Pailhead (4633) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JUL 26, 2014
On tap: The aroma consists of caramel, coconut, cherry, oak, vanilla, and light bourbon. Its a hazy reddish-orange with a small beige head that quickly fades to a thin soapy ring. The flavor starts with a caramel, toffee, brown sugar, and lightly tart cherry. The finish has coconut, oak, and light bourbon. Its medium bodied with mild carbonation.

Chalsk (1051) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - JUN 7, 2014
On tap at. Fieldhouse for PBW. What a way to end PBW 2014! Pours a dark reddish amber brown color with oil slick head. Aroma of smooth cherry, caramel and chocolate. Dark fruit and cherry taste with a heavy bourbon presence. Very well done.

PhillyCraft (3142) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2014
On tap at Time for Bells, pours plum color with not much head or lace. Aromas are more subtle than flavor but I got some whiffs of oak, bourbon, dark cherry, and malt. Flavor was more pronounced with dark sweet fruits mostly cherry, bourbon, wood, and leather. Maybe needed a little more carbonation but solid.

b3shine (5195) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 29, 2014
Draft to taster at the Eccentric Cafe. Looks good; a cloudy amberish dark orange with foamy light beige head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells solid; sweet and malty with notes of oak and cherry. Tastes like it smells with a bit of booziness. Average on the palate. Could be smoother, but enjoyable nonetheless.

Aroma: grainy with a doughy and yeasty elements, some fruit. Great amber brown color with a heavy head. Taste: Bitter and sweet

MrBunn (2456) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2014
On tap at Eccetric. Pours a reddish amber with little head. Aromas are strong with cherries and brown sugar. Interesting nose to say the least. Flavor is also really interesting. Almost like cherry cough syrup at times but then at other times it is far more appealing. The late palate cough syrup is a bit of a deal breaker for me though. At the front of the palate the cherries come through clean and crisp but things get muddy as it progresses to an awkward finish.

bwa5879 (611) - Portage, Michigan, USA - APR 21, 2014
Dark brown/red pour with a small layer of beige head. Low carbonation, viscous mouthfeel, finish lightly numbing. Sticky syrupy scent, some cherry and molasses, possible sweet bourbon as well, pine-pitchy. Taste is leathery, full of dark fruits and deep smokey wood, very very tart fruits and cherry on finish, with some apparent booze. Alright big beer but conflicting based on personal preferences alone. Will take some palate maturity on my part to enjoy properly, much like scotch.
