22 oz bottle, Best After 04/22/15, just now getting around to it- Pours dark ruby red with a light tan head that reduces. Aroma is oak, bourbon, dark fruits, musty grapes, very nice. The taste is oak, vanilla, dark fruits, i’d say cherry, but could be pomegranate, light chocolate, it reminds me of the Firestone Walker Anniversary beers, that toasted coconut flavor that mingles with the barrel, alcohol is noticeable, leaving a warming feeling. Yum!!
