Thanks to Chris (spycow) for sharing this one). Served in a Hill Farmstead tulip.

A - White foam settles to a thin collar, leaving minimal lace and wisps behind. Hazy brown body.

S - Massive oak and bourbon notes, with some honey and sweet cherry flesh as well. Somewhat harsh, with a mild cough syrup vibe to it as well as some fusel alcohol. I like these flavors in general, but this is a bit rough.

T - The taste is better, with a more balanced mix of cherry syrup, whiskey, vanilla, some nebulous sweet malts, and better-hidden alcohol. As it warms up the oak dissipates a bit which improves things.

M - Medium body, smooth texture, perhaps a tad thin and watery for 11%. Light alcohol warmth and bite in the finish.

D - We opened this because there was an infection rumor, but thankfully it didn't prove to be true. However, this is still quite unpolished and heavy-handed with the barrel-aging flavors. A little more age might help, but I'm not going to actively try to revisit this batch.

Pours a deep reddish brown with little to no head and a sticky lacing that made a pattern similar to the finger lakes of NY on my glass.

The smell is awesome. Cherries and Bourbon pop right out. It smells like a barrel aged NG Belgian Red. There is a hint of sweet and sour in my nose.

The taste just explodes in my mouth. Cherries and cranberries pop right out. The finish is sour with a definite bourbon burn. Something else I can't place. A weird numbing taste in the back of my mouth.

The mouthful is bubbly and vibrant with an alcohol flush and that taste I just can't place again.

Overall, I really enjoyed this beer. I am not a fruit beer fan usually, but this has a nice balance.

Shared by cmrillo during BRoss242’s send-off party before he moves! Will miss you man! Bottle #173 of 204! Served from bottle into a Mikkeller taster flute. Poured a ruby red-orange with a half finger off-white head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, cherry, wood, sugar, fruit, and honey. The flavor was of sweet malt, cherry, wood, sugar, tart cherry, alcohol, and honey. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty decent brew. I can honestly say that the name of this brew is pretty much spot on with the aroma and flavor as you get all of those aspects right up front. However, I did find it a little on the sweet side. Unfortunately I don’t eat sweets often at all so this was a bit of a turnoff for me. Worth trying/ticking if you have not done so, but I wouldn’t trade all your whales for it even with this low of a bottle count.
