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.

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!
