Pour on tap at Tap n Handle, dark brownish pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of bourbon, oak, sour fruits, hints of a weird trashy note, some vegetal note in there as well, odd. Taste is a mix of oak, earth, vanilla, touch of caramel, toffee, hints of bourbon, slight trashy and vegetal note as well, finishing slightly sour, bitter.

after4ever (5928) - Brier, Washington, USA - APR 11, 2014
Draft at sb. Pours a clear very dark brown with a loose tan head that sticks around. Big sharp tangy nose, showing cherries and plums in balsamic, with apricotty bourbon notes and some bitey barrel character. They got the nose on this one really dialed. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Cherries, plums, oak, balsamic and apricot mid palate. Very nice.
