Wow! I was really impressed with this beer. I would easily buy as much as I could if it was in bottles. This had all of the goodness from the bourbon Fred however it adds cherry to the mix. I love cherry and on this brew they nailed it! Sometimes you can barely taste the cherries and other times it is way over used. On this though, not the case.

Smell was amazing, bourbon, chocolate, and cherry! The taste is just as it smells however you get all of the little bonus's such as the molasses and thick sweetness. Sure, it's a sweet beer so if you like sweet beers then give it a go. The beer is not bitter at all. If anything if you like the bourbon Fred and if you like cherry than you will be in love. I had 4 glasses of this stuff and my wife had to drive after but well worth it.

On tap at the brewery yesterday.
Still deep brown reddish highlights no head or lace. Nose is plenty of cherries and bourbon, brown sugar. The Fred base is obliterated, it's amazing how pervasive the cherry character is here. The palate is the same. More like cherry Adam than Fred, but without the earthy tobacco complexity. Candi sugar, a touch of rye spice, caramel, toffee and brown sugar. Long, boozy finish with blend of cherries and bourbon. Not much vanilla. Full body in body and mildly carbonated, this beer is a decadent treat. . Yum.
