Bottle generously shared by CanIHave4Beers. Pours a dirty orange color. Aroma-like a tree. And, sweet cherry and honey. Flavor-the cherry is rockin, but there’s a weird nuttiness mixing in there unpleasantly. Finishes with lots of honey. Too much honey.

patrickfannon (1241) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 28, 2011
Bottle. Split with James and Dallay. Pours a slight amber with a thin, wispy white head. Aroma of pie crust, heavy fresh cherry, vanilla, lactose and cream, strawberries, and some smooth oak. Tastes like smoother, thinner, slighty creamier Enigma. Barrel aged Enigma. More tart than sour, this finishes thin and musty and full of dark cherry. Excellent sour cherry ale.

Bottle split with pat and dallas. Pours a hazy amber red body with white lacing. Aroma is absolutely perfect - notes of tart, ripe sour cherries and light Bourbon waves. Mouthfeel is great fruity textures - mistletoe sweet and sour cherries not too much bourbon. Lots of fruit.

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2012 Bottle with James and pat. Pours a clear red with thin head. Amazing smell. Cherries with oaked bourbon. Taste is light, tart, slighty funky. Bourbon cream mellows it out keeping it overly acidic. Ridiculously smooth. So complex.
