4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from 750 to glass that was properly cellared since release. Clear brown hue with reddish tint and tan head that dissipated to a ring. Aroma is cherry, lactic, tobacco, leather, bourbon. Mouthfeel is great with a light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry sweet with a tart following and oaky tannin finish. Overall this is a great beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pour is dark brown, red edges, tan head. Nose has a bit of acetic acid, moderate wood and bourbon blends with the sour cherry of the old bruin and iím not a real fan of the result. Flavor is a bit washed out, boozy, acetic acid melts the flavor, the bourbon and sour cherry are not a good combo for me. Chalky feel, soft carb, a bit full bodied.

750 ml bottle, traded with hannont, Thanks Todd! pours clear medium dark brown with an amber hue. Small yellowish head. The nose is a unique combination of cherry funk and barley wine alike vanilla bourbon. Medium body, pungent ssour, some level of sweetness, but all it rather on the fruit acidity side. Flavour reveals some spicy notes, even some orange and cinnamon mix (aftertaste), cherries. Interesting beer.

Dark brown with a haze. Nose is caramel, red grapes, bourbon, oak and tart cherry. Slick and oily, juicy with a sour bite. Taste is sour cherry, cinnamon and cranberry that almost becomes too sweet before the bourbon licks in.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle... Murky caramel-colored ale with a small, creamy, khaki head. Excellent retention. The aroma offers and assortment earthy, malty and acidic notes - oak, caramel, cherry and lactic acidity. Full-bodied and creamy with laid-back carbonation. This is an intricate tapestry of bourbon warmth, oaken earthiness and funk, caramel maltiness and cherry tartness. Finishes bourbony in flavor, but not at all boozy or hot. Bottle courtesy of newcigarz!

Bottle. Smells like cheesy fruit; brown sugar; poop; starburst. Taste: vinous, smoke, leather ... Weird. Donít know what to make of this really, but ... Okay. A lot going on. But hard to figure out what I should be drinking. I donít like this for no reason except I donít have a narrative to latch onto.
