N: Cherry, toffee, biscuit, candy sugar, oak, touch of vinous grape, ample bourbon, and vanilla.
T: Very sweet but not cloying.
M: Medium oily body, tickling carbonation, no alcohol presence.
O: This is far superior to the previous version. The cherry is well integrated and adds an extra dimension to an already delicious beer.
