I was lucky enough to attend a Bourbon County bottle share last night where we had every variant present.
I rated this beer #4 last night with the top 4 going in this order Vanilla>Rare>Bramble>Cherry
Probably my favorite cherry beer to date. This beer more than any of the other rye barrel aged bourbon county stout (bramble, backyard, etc.) had that distinct spiciness from the rye barrel and it meshed perfectly. With every sip I took I kept thinking, cherry pie. The spiciness of the rye barrel helped simulate that oh so good pie crust taste. My only knock on this variant and its a small one is it is a little thin compared to the other variants...but still very good, seek this one out, well done bourbon county!
