375ml bottle shared during #bottlecherwednesday at Beachwood BBQ in Seal Beach. Poured into tulip. Beer is clear dark amber with a tall khaki head that quickly collapses to nothing. Aroma is citrus, oak, spice, dried fruit, and brett funk. Taste is tart/sweet citrus and dried fruit, woody/nutty bitterness, and just a touch of bourbon heat. Medium bodied, creamy texture, soft carbonation, and a long drying, warming finish.

Ruby brown with a decent beige head. Aroma is candied citrus peel, currants, cinnamon, cranberries, brown sugar, chocolate, cherry. Creamy mouthfeel, full bodied, sweet and rich on the palate with a touch of candy tartness in the background. Taste is chocolate, sweet cherries, candied orange peel, bourbon, sticky toffee pudding, candied pecans. Delicious, really is like a fruit cake.

Bottle... Poured brown with a thin forming head. Nice brett and funk along with wood on the nose. Tasted of wood and light fruits. Hints of booze and orange zest too. Reminded me of a cocktail in that sense. Except here the dryness and yeast spice were prevalent. Some sourness but definitely not a puckering one.

On tap at the Portland holiday ale fest. Colour...dark amer-brown with a moderately thick head. Nose...acetic, fruity and spicy with emphasis on zesty tangerine. Palate...not especially effervescent but that’s ok. Plenty of tart, dry fruit with a focus on satsuma mandarins and cranberry relish. I’m not getting much Bourbon, but then again since Maker’s Mark is a wheated Bourbon, the typical Bourbon flavours are rather muted. The finish is oaky with a lingering acetic quality.

On tap at the Holiday Ale Festival. An usual brew. Pours a deep brown color with a large white head. The aroma is deep Belgian spices, some sour fruit, wood. The flavor is mostly sour fruit, a bit of dust, some tartness, oranges, some heat, a bit of dry barrel. Gin? Heat and sourness. Pretty nice.
