4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
I obtained this bottle in a trade with a great trader @thebeerprophet. Brought this to a bottle share at Proof. Pours a hazy very dark peach color. Good amount of head on the first pour that dissipated fairly quickly. Second pour got more head than the first. Nice medium white collar. Aroma is very earthy/woody and sweet-tart cherry blend. Taste is amazing. Very similar to the aroma, with some of the caramel/wood coming out. Mouthfeel is viscous for a sour; like chewing an overripe marischino cherry. Nice carbonation despite the low head. Pretty thick body. So glad I traded for this to share with good people.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Pours a redish copper color with lots of sediment and small bubbles floating around. No head retention at all, resembles a Manhattan very well. Smells like oak, vanilla, sour cherries, vinegar and a bit of char. Maraschino cherries are the first thing on the tongue, followed by a good bit of vinegar sourness and bourbon vanilla sweetness. The finish is a mix of dry tart cherries and a very mild bourbon barrel heat. It is very dry, little champagne like bubbles to it, that leaves a bit of sweetness lingering on the palate. This beer was amazing, a great mix of sweet and sour, fruit and whiskey. The abv was hidden well and the beer was executed to perfection
