Pours a black cherry with stems like Jackie Brown.
Smells like Kool Aids Cherry Cousin, Cherry Aid. Very good.

2011 release at the tasting room on 3/5. Served in a 3-oz HOTD tasting glass. Tasting notes from memory. Unfortunately I had a couple pints at lunch before stopping at HOTD, as I really wish I could have enjoyed a full 12oz pour.
A: Dark brown with obvious red or dark amber notes along the edges. Poured with almost no carbonation. Just a thin ring around the edge that disappeared almost immediately.
S: Bourbon hit first followed by some sweet, fruity aromas. And then more bourbon. The smell is intense.
T: Just like the smell, the bourbon floods the senses on first taste. And then again on second taste. Once past the bourbon (and the beer warms a bit), the cherry flavors start to become more apparant mid to late in the taste. Other barrel notes (vanilla) are there, but only in the distance. This one needs some age.
M: Very thick and oily, almost to the point of being cloying. Little to no carbonation. I personally thing some minimal carbonation would have really helped here as well as with bottle aging.
D: Excellent. Smooth and rich. The bourbon is a little overpowering right now, but this should evolve into a wonderful beer over the next one to five years.
Serving type: on-tap
