Bottle, rated from notes. Pours a surprisingly clear dark brown, slight ring of tan. Legs outdo the lacing. Big whiff of cherry, winter fruit and bourbon. Nice vanilla notes, slick mouthfeel, oak not doing much to dry out the finish. Weird and good.

Bottle - Pours brown with a ring of bubbly tan head. Nose is sweet and malty, boozy but not sharp, with a lot of caramel notes. Taste is sweet and caramelly with some malty goodness. Not tons of fruit--a bit of cherry--with a long, sweet finish. Thin and carbonated with a medium body. Expected a little more than this.
