Sampled at Dark Lord Day 2014. Pours a hazy copper color with a medium tan head. Some lacing. Aroma of cherry and bourbon. Medium barrel, mellow biscuit and booze notes. Some vanilla, oak, and cocoa. Taste is sweet with medium booze burn. Bread, caramel, and cherry sweetness up front with some vanilla cherry and biscuit lingering sweetness. Finish is boozy and dry. Pretty interesting.

This was a nice surprise a friend had brought down with him on his recent visit along with many other surprises.The flavor and aroma was cherries and malt but not overwhelming which was nice. This was a nice take on Robert the bruce and was very enjoyable,to bad they did not bottle more of this.CHEERS!

UPDATED: JUL 30, 2013 68/81. Not consumed at G&tG. Not terrible, cherries and barrel dominate the normailly tame RtB and make it worthwhile.

Chocolate and cherries. Tastes the way it smells. A beer meant for sharing and sipping. Bottle (of only 81) shared with northropfrye at Girl and the Goat in Chicago.

Limited edition bottle from Girl and the Goat, Chicago. Reddish brown body. Amazing sweet chocolate and fruit aroma. Taste is indistinguishably fruit and chocolate, barleywine notes, vinous. Excellent stuff.

750 ml bottle purchased and consumed at Girl and the Goat (Chicago, IL). I scampered on in when I heard this was kicking around. Pours a deeper brownish hue, mellow haziness and some ruby copper notes in the body, indicative of the base, perhaps some cherry. A firm haziness, some shine of copper and brown glow on the edges shows some decent light. Frothy offwhite head atop dies to a film, laces small. Aromas are a mellow barrel that grows, gentle spirit meets some firm cherry fruit. Cherryskins, gentle sweet/tart play with biscuity and toasty malts, some vanilla, wet oak, and gentle cocoa and biscuit play that grows more firm. Initial is medium bodied, perhaps a touch thinned with good flavors up front. Firmer barrel meets vanilla, cherries, and biscuity/toasty malts. Carmelized malts, bread, some toffee. Gentle cocoa, earthiness. The cherries are pleasant, gentle tartness and sweet fruit. Never getting medicinal. Carmelized malts, sweeter feel as we move into the middle and backend. A touch tannic, the fruit in this doesn’t stand out for me as well as Cabra but still is quite pleasant. Again, the Robert The Bruce in the Templeton Barrels has really worked out well for these. Backend and finish are a bit of spirit, lingering cherryskins and fruit, vanilla and oak. Toastiness, carmelized malts and biscuits. A touch of sweetness, dryness and gentle spirit linger from the barrel, tannins, and a bit of toastiness. Nice beer.
