Off orange pour dense off white head. Hugely tart fruit aroma a good amount of dry oak. Hints of leather amd earthy minerals. Well blended. Small well coated palate lingers but doesnt hold. Sour off cherry a fair amount of oak amd leather reminds me a bit of G black with a lot less tart. Very good.

750ml bottle. Not sure how I haven’t already rated this one but..Unfiltered orange-brown. Thin, oily head. Nice in your face sourness. This one displays more balance than the last bottle I had. The bourbon grounds it, and never overwhelms it. Unique and well done.

hopdog (9189) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 5, 2013
750ml, caged and corked bottle. Poured a hazy amber color with a smaller sized off white head. Cherries, woody, some funkiness, and some bourbon.

Damico (2684) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Pours unclear hazy amber with a small white ring for a head. Aroma is sweet cherries with a tad bit of zing. Flavor brings tart not overly dry cherry flavors that settle well on the tongue with some mild but wild yeast flavors on the tongue.

In a daring move, I tried this on tap at the Amherst brewery (7-20-2013) after sampling two much-heavier bourbon-barrel-aged beverages. The results: success (and no late-night second thoughts from my stomach). The cherries are the tongue-curling stars here -- nothing overwhelming and quite delicious.

Fairly oak heavy with some backing tannins. Moderate lactic character and a bit of cherry

Bottle shared by Ken, pours a cloudy amber with a thin white head. Aroma of funk, a bit of cherries and sweet bourbon. Taste is big time tart cherries and pleasant tart bite.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 21, 2013
Pours hazy amber. Aroma is tart with cherries and the taste follows through. Not as good as I was hoping. Ok.

Besides scores - Unfortunate nonsensical notes from tasting...sorry. Very nicely put together but not earth shattering. Interesting beer. Would hope to try again.
