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!
