On tap at the tasting room on 8.2.12

A - Served a dark ruby red. Very wine-like with a fizzy light pink head that fades quickly.

S - Sweet fruit, oak, bourbon, molasses.

T - The taste is sweet fruit an oaky, then lots I boozy bourbon, carmel, and molasses and some slight peach in the finish.

D - Nice carbonation, medium body with a slightly sweet finish.

O - I lucked out on this one. I think it is better than it's components, which is saying a lot. Drinks very easy and smooth.

This was a supertreat! Got a big bottle from a good and well known beerfriend, Bill Young. Shared this bottle at the 2014 Borefts beerfestival in Holland. Increadibly balanced beer with real chunks of fruit in it.

A blend of barrel aged Cherry and Peach Freds on tap @ HotD. Pours deep ruby with no head. Nose is sweet bourbon and caramel, cherry with hints of oak and heat. Taste is fantastic--really smooth blend of black cherry, bourbon, vanilla, mellow oak, and big waves of bready malt. Don’t get the peaches, but I’m sure they’re in there somewhere. Real smooth and velvety in the mouth, even though it’s not all that carbonated.
