Courtesy of bu11zeye. Reddish brown color with a fleeting head. Citrusy tart lemon and cherry aromas with boozy vanilla. Medium body with little carbonation. Tart lemon and sour cherry flavors with a sharp caramel and bourbon vanilla sweetness.

Bottle #038
Poured deep red, more blood red than an actual red ale. Small amount of bubbles surface, no real head, very little carbonation.
Smells a little musky, fair amount of oak, green apple.
Taste is tart, little bit of apple, vinegar, fairly strong flavor of red wine, very light bourbon notes and oak on the end,

Bottle #80 thanks to bu11zeye. No head, but a ruby orange body. Aroma of funky barnyard and some caramel/bourbon. Sweet tasting because of the bourbon, but nice elements of sour, bleu cheese and barn.
