Vintage 2012 bomber served into a Goose Isalnd wine glass. Proper.

Pours a murky red/brown with no head head or lacing. Smell is cherries, vanilla, tobacco, oak, and other mild light stone fruits. Taste is pure cherry, oak, and tobacco. Other flavors of stone fruits and light citrus like acidity are there, but the oak and cherries dominate. It tastes like I'm drinking a Cabernet Sauvignon. Mouthfeel is mildly tart, medium carbonation, crisp, hides the ABV, very drinkable.

I've had this beer fresh and this one 2 years old. This one kills the fresh beer.
