Poured from a mini growler into a water glass.
Amazing aroma of dark cherry, spice, vanilla, oak, and toffee. Taste is of bourbon, fruit, roastiness, and alcohol. This beer drinks a bit like a smooth manhattan.

Fresh from bottle. Black pour with thin, light brown head. Malt and rye whiskey scent with a lot of cherries. Tastes similar to bourbon county, but with more cherry and a bit of a sour bite. Great, silky mouthfeel. Overall, just feels a bit lacking next to BCBCS.

Pours a dark black just BCS with a thin tan head. Aroma is bourbon, malt, chocolate and just the right amount of cherry. Something you want to sip on. Big bourbon flavors blended beautifully with the cherries, chocolate and slight vanilla. Not very acidic or bitter. Amazing beer

Bomber shared at RBWG Grand Tasting and again at Pre-Hunahpu Tasting Thursday. Pours a dark obsidian color with a tan head. Nose is roasted malts, some light booze, some mild sweet cherries, chocolate, some oak, vanilla, and some mild tart cherry. Flavor is similar- a chocolate, cherry, booze, oak, vanilla, and sweet cocktail of flavors. Medium in body and a nice sipper to ponder.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle shared in NH, many thanks to Adam. Pours dark, brown-black with a creamy, beige head. Definitely some tangy cherries in the aroma. Big sweet flavor, lots of dark, sugary malts, lightly cutting tart cherries, some bitter cherry pits. Big bodied with fine carbonation. Moderately warming to finish, some dark chocolate, fresh cherry character, dark bread, oily coconut, brown sugar, light vanilla. Very nice stuff. Quite drinkable with good depth.

Never really clamored for stouts with cherries added for some reason but this was different, a classy brew .. . deep black .. cherry, cherry pit, tar, and burnt rye bread .. . solid mouth .. . like i said, classy .. . . You get her gun and start attacking her with bullets...
