On tap at FoBAB 5. Poured cloudy, garnet-tinted brown with little if any head. The aroma picked up sweet, heavy vanilla and darker fruity notes with fresher oak not far behind.. bourbon and ever-so-subtle cherries emerge with warmth and tickle the nose hairs as a final impression. The flavor was remarkably sweet, which got in the way a bit.. vanilla, fruits, and bourbon formed the basis for the brew, with warmer vanilla bean, toasted oak, and a delightful cherry tartness gracing the back-end.. this grew on me, but remained too sweet. Medium-bodied with low, but spritzy carbonation across the middle.. the tart cherry twist worked very well on the back.. the warm finish was highly satisfying.

From EBF. Pours a dark brune body with a tan head. Big etoh and over ripe cherry notes amongst a smothering of bourbon, wood, vanilla and lighter caramel. Subdued hoppiness of pine to the cherry bourbon warming. I preferred the base beer.

FoBAB 2007: Deep ruby hued with an oily leg and minimal head. The aroma has notes of spice and bourbon, cherry pits (but not cherry juice), maple, tobacco, grassy hops, and an earthy ester.
WOW, a nice cherry driven tartness cuts straight through the malty Behemoth base beer, wonderful complexity IMO. There is a lush marzipan and nutty note as well before leading off towards an oaky and slight bourbon finish. The mouth feel is lush, warming, aggressive. A full mouth feel which complemented the flavor profile.
A work of art, congrats to the brothers Floyd. It is a shame this did not medal, what in the heck were they drinking?
