4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(bottle - corked & caged 750 ml - 2012 vintage) Dark copper pour with a thin tan head. Sour and tart funk in the aroma with a hint of cherries and sweetness. Nice sour and tart flavor at the start that gives way to a sweet fruity and cherry middle and you can definitely get hints of the barrel. Not so sour that it overpowers and really does well with the sweetness.

Tap at brewery. Dark reddish brown pour. Port wine, cherries, leather, oak, caramel. Medium to full body. Well balanced where it is not too oaky and you can actually feel the cherries and other fruit. Very nice

On tap at the brewpub - Pours dark brown with a tannish head. The aroma has rich cherries, dark caramel, oak, pie filling, oak, pedio / lactic sourness and quick rich and malty. It has a full smooth rich body with really soft carbonation. The flavor begins with rich berries, vanilla, oak, bourbon, tobacco, dark fruits, berries, toffee and caramel. The finish has lots of malt, barrel and fruit. Really nice.

Pours a very nice dark red. Smell is all bourbon and cherries. A tiny hint of oak. Pretty awesome. Taste is pretty tart. Bourbon mostly in the front and back end. Just enough cherry. Overall a great beer.
