Thanks to Treebs for the share. Enjoyed on 12/30/12.

A: Deep amber appearance with an off white head. Fairly clear and looks nice with the light shining through it.

S: Big bourbon nose, cherry, and rich malt aromas.

T: Follows the nose with the huge bourbon flavor. Dark fruits easy to pick up and a sweet, rich caramel malt backbone. Touch of booze hotness.

M: Medium-bodied, light carbonation, a little hot as it finishes.

O: Huge bourbon flavor, but doesn't mask the other flavors from the base.

Serving type: bottle
