Last bottle in town. Yay! Pours deep dark black with a small dark brown head. Aroma of fudge, fudge, fudge, some light licorice, vanilla. Smells so freakin’ rich. No cherry to start on the nose. Thick rich mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Flavor is sweet rich chocolate, tart cherry, vanilla, and finishing with a fudge bourbon left on the palate. Just a hint of alcohol burn. Not as much barrel as I was hoping. Definite dessert beer...guess I should have opened with a friend. Oh well. Not sure if I dig the cherry, as it adds an over the top sweet to this. Something to be enjoyed in smaller quantities. Gonna be a long night. 2 days later: only had a small glass fist night then let this sit in the fridge with a wine stopper for a couple days. Came back to it and while still crazy sweet, seems less so this time and a little creamier with lower carb. Still not keen on the cherry but a slight uptick and more vanilla today.
Yeah I'm just that guy that doesn't dig this. Wish I would have traded it for the crazy crap people offered up on the trade forums.
