Bottle at RBWG 2016. Thanks JoeT! Nose is oxidized paper and apple fruitiness. Light zest hazy ruby color. Taste is bourbon and citrus but the underlying watery papery oxidation just kills it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap a wicked weed brewing in Asheville north Carolina. Served in a snifter with a bit of orange rind as a garnish. This is a unique brew styled to mimic an old fashioned bourbon drink. I must day that it achieves that goal admirably. The beer has a definite bourbon barrel taste that mixed with the sweetness of the malt and the orange and cherry essences blends into a nice drink. If you don’t like bourbon though, this is not the drink for you.

11/26/13. On tap at the brewpub. An interesting brew for sure! Red brown pour with a small tan head. Nice aroma, the whiskey isn’t too strong, with a good blend of maltiness, dark sugars, cherry, and orange. The flavor is nice as well, but loaded with cherry. So much cherry. Additionally some maltiness, sugars, orange, and whiskey. Interesting, tasty.

On tap at the brewpub. Burgundy clear pour. Rich aroma of orange juice, orange peel, and whiskey. Background notes of wood, lime, and maraschino cherries in the nose make this smell like a cocktail. Full massive flavor of whiskey, cherries, orange peel, and sangria. Warming whiskey finish. They really nailed what they were going for here. Massive and awesome!
