A - A dark brown/purple/maroon hue. Very opaque with a brownish white head that disappears quickly, but maintains an outer ridge around the edge of the glass.
S - Sour cherries dominate, with undertones of sugar and roasted malt. Occassionally a bourbon whiff spikes through and gives an oaky character to the smell.
T - Very, very sour and tart cherry flavor dominate the first impression, but as the acidic sourness fades, the flavor sinks into a bed of toasty malts, sweet vanilla, and oakiness with some very mild hints of bourbon. As the second wave of flavors pass some of the sourness returns, but the final taste is pure cherry sweetness.
M - Very thick and I was actually surprised at the level of carbonation. While the beer is smooth, the carbonation makes it dry out a bit quick, rushing the flavor a bit.
D - High ABV, very expensive, but oh so delicious.
