Bottle shared at RBSG. The beer is a hazy brown with a white head of foam. Sweet and malty with an earthy funk to it. Cherry tartness comes through in the taste. Medium body and medium carbonation. douglas88 (9625) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 14, 2017

500ml corked bottle. Tart cherry aroma with notes of vinous red wine, bourbon, oak, vanilla and funk. Pours dark red with a thin tan head that has some retention and decent lacing. Starts with tart cherry and red wine flavors that also has a bright, lively mouthfeel. Finishes dry but quite smooth with some yeast funk flavor as well as nice bourbon, oak and vanilla notes cutting through the tartness nicely. Really nice and well-balanced.

Pouring at the RBSG17 Grand Tasting. Pours a hazed brown with a thin white head. Soft cherries and wood on the nose. Medium bodied, warm wood and bourbon. Bourbon or something on here is a bit too hot and distracting. Warm wood, booze, cherries.
