Bottle pours mostly clear dark amber brown with minimal head. Big barrel aroma, sweet caramel and toffee, maple syrup, stone fruit, molasses, vanilla. Sweet caramel malt flavor, big and somewhat boozy. Peach and cherry notes. Medium-plus body, minimal carbonation. Good stuff. Different.

2016 vintage bottle drank at the brewery. Aroma is wood, cherries (pits and fruit), vanilla, toffee. Pours hazy amber with off-white foam. Taste is sweet, boozy, mild cherry and peach influence. Not bad. I know how good it will get with some age on it.

12oz bottle bought back at the 20th anniversary party. Hazy dark mahogany with a thin ring of beige head. A fruity and well balanced booze party with a dark almost burnt caramel malt presence that creates a very nice sweet aroma. Some peach schnapps, oak, dark vanilla, leather, light ash, cherry pits, some bourbon, becomes dry with a nice mild carbonation and full body that leaves a nice boozy and fruity finish leaving me at least wanting more.

2013 bottle - candied fruit, residual hop bitterness, booze, and wood are at the forefront. Soft carbonation makes it a little syrupy. Tastes pretty damn good though.

February 7, 2016 - bottle via trade. Brown pour with limited head and sediment. Aroma was bourbon, fruit, malt and spice. Taste was a nice blend of the flavors from the aroma. A great brew while watching the 85 Bears 30 for 30 special, best NFL team ever.

Bottle split on 3.29.14 with Adam and Chris. Thanks Adam. Dark brown pour with tons of lingering head. Aroma is dark red fruits and lots of cherries. Taste is sweet with lots of malts. You can definitely taste the cherries and some of the peach. Pretty boozy.

TXBadger (2348) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 20, 2015
Bottle at a share, 2013 vintage: pours a murky reddish brown color with off-white head. Wood tones, dark fruits, candied raisins, cherries, and some light peach tones on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium to full bodied. Finishes very sweet, like candied fruit.
