A dark brown pour, but without the viscosity one is accustomed to seeing with such a high SRM level. Actually had 1/2" of head on it, most wild ales seem to be lacking in that department. Nice sweet bourbon aroma that is Heaven Hill, tried and true. Along with that, some cherry notes, mild sour aroma. Nice.
The taste gets more complex from there, the vanilla gets decently prominent, oak is underneath it all. The taste is more bourbon than sour. But it really is balanced nicely between the dark cherry, vanilla, bourbon, sweet and sour notes. This is comparable to Vlad the Impaler from Cascade, a nice alternative when there's no Vlad around. Not as good, but that's kind of the benchmark for style. This is a little more barrel than that, + cherry, and less sour notes, and nowhere near as strong.
Overall, it far exceeded my expectations. One of my top 3 beers made in Nevada.
