2012 vintage.

Pours a deep, deep brown, with a sense tan head. Cherry, balsamic, bubblegum, and light hints of dark chocolate roast form the aroma. Highly unusual. Flavor reveals similar tart cherry and vinegar, but roast malt and dark cocoa counter and dominate. The finish is slightly roast bitter. Quite complex! Banana and roasted malt round out the profile. There's a lightly phenolic character that's offputting.

Had on tap at Frisco taphouse Columbia on 5/28/14

A-Midnight black colour, huge two finger dark brown head, that eventually dies down to a ring.

S-Nose is a little bourbon, that gives way to sugary vanilla barrel character.

T-Flavor is similar to the aroma bit not as good

M-Mouthfeel is a little watery but well balanced.

O-Overall a great RIS that I think could be even better with the taste and mouthfeel
