A terribly overpriced 2009 bottle shared with fellow drunkard t0rin0.

A: The pour is completely flat and dark blood red in color. Even with a vigorous pour, still not even a trace of a bubble.

S: The nose is full of rich chocolate, sweet and mildly tart cherries, bourbon, molasses, and nondescript dark fruits. An absolutely wonderful nose.

T: The flavors mimic the nose for the most part. The cherries are a bit more pronounced and have a touch more tartness to them than the nose would indicate. The chocolatey oxidation provides a great balance to the fruit and the oak, vanilla, and bourbon flavors really tie everything together.

M: Although the beer is completely flat, it still works out well. It's not syrupy, but does have some nice viscosity to it. The alcohol is warming without being hot or off-putting.

D: It wasn't quite worth the money that we paid for it, but still a fantastic beer. I'd love to try this again.

Very complex beer. When cold, heavy molasses, cherry, and sherry dominate. Low carbonation, which compliment the beer nicely. As it warms the molasses takes a backseat, but it's still in the background. Leather aroma, dark fruit and bourbon presents itself. Fantastic old ale, love it.
