5 oz pour at Bell’s- little nose. Very little carbonation. Great cherry taste with a very tart taste with whiskey barrel heat as it goes down. Nice in small doses.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is tart cherry, dried fruit, lighter than expected. Appearance is a mix between red and brown, light brown head. Taste is better than aroma, lots of cherry followed by dried fruit, figs, malt. Mouthfeel is great, some carbonation but a great mouthfeel with not too much booze burn. Overall, very very good.

From notes. Finally getting around to adding beers from the Ypsi Summer Beerfest! Enjoyed on July 25. The pour is a dark reddish brown with a thin ring of light khaki head and some light lacing. The aroma is big on caramel and a good vanilla from the bourbon barrel. There is a light cherry and some strong malt on the back end. The flavor is a little bit like molasses mixed with cherries, with a side of caramel. There isn’t much of a barrel note, other than a light vanilla. There is a heay booziness on the back end. The mouth feel is thick and creamy with a light carbonation and some lovely lingering boozy fruity notes.

~5oz pour on tap at Maduro during GTMW. Hazy dark red brown color. Thin off-white head. Some ropes of lace. Good light caramel malt, and bourbon whiskey wood aroma. Lightly spicy, with a nice undertone of the cherry. Medium to bigger body. Light slick texture. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Moderate bitter, moderate sweet taste, lightly spicy. Some nice light alcohol warmth. Pretty tasty, interesting complex stuff to sip on.
