Bottle. The pour is a hazy brown. The aroma is almost overpowering, in a good way. The taste is amazingly good. Great mix of sour, spices, and bourbon.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at the Raccoon lodge.
Dark, dark pour, boozy, wood and vanilla covering over the sour base of cherry Flemish sour. In addition to a bourbon blast, the flavor brings a lot of the balsamic Duchess taste that I find off-putting in sours. Sweet. Plenty of spice, almost like cinnamon. Too hot. I’m not overwhelmed by this one.

750ml bottle, thanks to FlandersNed. Sticker on the cap indicates "2010". Shared with local raters. Mostly hazy dark brown / red color. Thin khaki head. Couple loose dots of lace. Smooth, lightly soft lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Good vanilla, bourbon, dark fruit aroma. Moderate sweet, and tart taste. Some chocolate aroma. Awesome, big bourbon barrel sour ale, very well-done. Hint of coffee, tannins. Awesome stuff. Alcohol very well-hidden.
