Bottle at the brewery December 2013. Dark mahogany color, no head. Hints of cherries inside peaches dipped in bourbon on the nose. Flavors have touches of wood, cherry, peaches, thick malts, a hint of alcohol, toffee with apples, and candy. Thick, powerful, savory, and amazing. More please!!

Westmeister (1754) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 14, 2014
From trade. Sorry don’t remember who. Pours a dark mahogany, with some slight floaties, poured vigoriously with a slight off white head. Smell is biscuity, bourbon, booze, vanilla, oak, ripe dark fruits, aged cherries. Taste shows the cherries more, smooth bourbon, vanilla, oak, some booze.

VT (1413) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 28, 2014
355 ml bottle. Pours a very murky pruneish red with a short lived white head. Aroma is bourbon, liquor, wood, cherry and peach. Flavor is lots of fruit, cherry flesh, peach, wood, bourbon, fruit pur. Finish is wood, bourbon. Lingering wood, liquor, cherry. Very thick body, soft mouthfeel, null carbonation. Solid.

Deep amber color with big chunks that poured out from the bottom of the bottle. Thin beige head. Boozy fruit nose. Delightful peach flavor with cherry and berry notes and a great bourbon barrel addition. Very tasty beer.

HOTD definitely over barrels their beers. There, I said it. With the exception of Adam from the Wood, theyve all been overly boozy. That said, they’ve all been very good...you just have to know what you’re in for. Strong boozy aroma and feel, sweet flavor. Otto is bourbon Fred with peaches and cherries. A nice addition, especially the cherries. Softens things up a bit, and adds another level of complexity. The peaches are more subtle and really just noticed in the aftertaste. Good brew."

LtDan (1784) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Appearance: Pours dark amber with a ring of white.

Aroma: Sweet cherry,maple/brown sugar, bourbon.

Taste: Toasted malt, chocolate, cherries, bourbon, mild hop spice.

Mouthfeel: Warming. Chunks of fruit. Full.

Overall: Such a treat. I like this far better than the base beer itself. The fruit and oak treatment made this beer majestic.

Murky reddish brown. Coconut, vanilla, burnt sugar, booze soaked pie cherries, peach pit. Buttery/oaky mouthfeel, mild heat, soft carbo. Stupid good

Multiple bottles of this going around @ Woodshed 3.0. Dark crimson, garnet, and mahogany pour with a small khaki head. Toffee, roasted coffee bitterness, salted caramels, bourbon, butterscotch, molasses, and brownie batter. Alcohol is is lightly noticeable but not distracting. Not getting the cherry or peach but damn delicious!
