25.4 oz bottle. 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. I liked a good whiskey sour back in the day.

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.

Bottle shared with Dany, Rudy, Eric, and my wife at Be Bap in Montreal. Pours a Deep black with a thin tan head that falls off immediately. Dark fruit, wood, acid and a bit of toast. Medium bodied, a touch acetic, funky acid. Long acid, funk and roast. Lingering acid with a bit of alcohol.

Wow this beer hugely exceeded my expectations. Pours brown with some robeytones and clarity. Aroma is smooth bourbon, vanilla, oak, cherries, tart dark fruits. Taste is medium sweetness and nice tartness without any vinegar bite.. Love it.

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!

Prufrockstar (1442) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 28, 2013
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.

Ferris (7532) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 17, 2013
Bottle - Vinous, oak and the typical players. Rich beige head and cloudy brown. Very oaky, and all flavours mellow to a very nice beer.

750mL bottle, pours an opaque dark mahogany with a small beige head. Aroma brings out complex bourbon barrels, light tartness, and dark fruits - quite exquisite. Flavour brings out loads of Pappy barrels, oak, some dark fruits, and moderate dark fruits. The Pappy barrels really stand out with an exquisite complexity, finishing on bourbon and sour notes. Very complex - the alcohol is noticeable but still drinkable. Stunning stuff.
