The beer comes in a dark black color with a bit of head.

The aroma offers a chocolate covered dark fruit. Figs, dark grapes, and balsamic. It almost smells like red wine barrel aged. Some vanilla and hint of bourbon barrel.

The flavor offers bitterness in the front of molasses and chocolate. A cherry fruitiness comes through with sweet bourbon and coffee bitterness on the finish.

An interesting bourbon barrel brew that does not taste exactly of bourbon barrel aging.
