Wow, what a great beer. I had Cherry Rye back in July and was looking forward to trying this one to compare. Was a little nervous about the cheery flavor but they did a great job. Tasted like real bing cherries and not the fake stuff! The bourbon was a little underwhelming compared to the cherry rye but was still there and added a good vanilla to the mix as well. Smell wasn't as overpowering as Cherry rye and mouthful was about the same. I couldn't believe this beer was 15%! Extremely well hidden. Overall, another fantastic beer by CCB!

Thanks to injuredreserve for sharing!

Pours black as night, with a dark brown head. Aroma wafts of cherries, dark chocolate, roast, coffee, fruits, bourbon and vanilla. Tastes cherry forward, with accompanying bourbon to calm down the sweetness of the cherry and stark dark chocolate. Feel is thick and chewy, rich and full bodied. Drinks great, can't really get the alcohol at all. Great stuff!
