4.15/5 rDev -0.5%
A-Almost black in the glass when full, but more of a clear ruby when held up to the light. Not much carbonation or head.
S-Cherries, oak, bourbon, malt, caramel, some dark fruits, very faint vanilla.
T-Starts with some semi tart cherries, then a bunch of caramel and malt. Bourbon and oak follow that up with dark fruits in the finish. As it warms the vanilla comes out more.
M-Medium to lighter in body, not much carbonation.
O-Improves as it warms, currently the cherries are in the forefront, age might tone them down but it is still a yummy beer.

Deep amber body with minimal head.
Deep boozy nose, with a hint of fruit.
Peachy taste with a bit of cherry aftertaste. Neither taste is overbearing, and impressive in spite of being difficult flavors.
Fine carbonation, relatively pronounced.
Pretty good, but the coriander is fighting with the fruit.

On tap at Hair of the Dog. Served in an HotD taster glass.
Appearance - Darker than Fred. Deep amber. No head. Looks flat... much like other Fred barrel treatments I've had.
Smell - Bourbon, cherry, and oak are most prominent. Pale malts. Earthy hops. A little bit of the original Fred back there, but it's a lot of barrel and fruit.
Taste - Cherry and bourbon again. The peach is faint, if nonexistent and I'm just imagining it since they told me it's Peach Fred. Maybe the Peach just cuts the intensity of the Cherry a bit. Pale malts are strong enough to make Fred come through all of this. Some apples and a slightly bitter finish that are more reminiscent of the base beer.
Mouthfeel - Pretty low in carbonation and rather hot. Not overly sweet like other barrel treatments from HotD. The weight and alcohol is expected for this size.
Overall - Really tasty. Not without the hurdles of a huge beer. Good fruit and the base beer stands up to all the craziness they've done to it.

2013 vintage poured in to snifter.
A - Opaque murky swamp brown colour with a ring of cream coloured head. There are a lot of large floaties in the beer, despite the fact that I left a decent amount in the bottom of the bottle.
S - A big oak presence with lots of sweet toffee and caramel notes and a faint hint of cherry,
T - A huge oak barrel profile shows up immediately along with toffee and caramel. There are lighter hints of cherry and vanilla in the background but the peach doesn't specifically show up.
M - Medium to full body. Light carbonation.
