Thanks to BrandonEast for sharing this amazing bottle with me.

Review from notes...

Poured a cola brown with a finger of fizzy cinnamon colored head. No retention.

The aroma I got was full of great spices, cinnamon mainly, lactic tartness, cherries and some very nice bourbon characteristics.

Taste was slightly lactic sourness upfront, cinnamon spice, chocolate and it was mother fuckin awesome!

Light to medium body with ample amounts of carbonation. Tart drying aftertaste.

This beer was simply amazing and will definitely stay on my "wants" list. Great complexity... somehow all of the flavors are individually recognizable but blended together amazingly. Simply amazing...

This is a pretty nice beer, but not everything I hoped for.

A: Dark brown with lighter crimson brown on the edges. A tanish bubbly head dies to a small ring, it kind of looks like a porter mixed with gueuze consistency.

S: An interesting smell with some tart citrus and some roasty notes. Vinegar, vanilla, and cinnamon make an interesting mix thats subtle. Cherries and raspberries with some wood. Interesting.

T: A lot of porter roast and chocolate but with just a touch of sour cherry overtones. Some nice bourbon flavor as well and some juicy fruity vanilla flavors. Lot of vanilla bean actually..cinnamon is sort of there but I imagine it was once more dominating in this brew. Sweet and confectionary. Good thing I like vanilla and sweet, if not I would hope this was more sour.

M: Pretty nice semi thick with plenty of bubbles.

Overall a nice brew I'd buy if I saw it, but I won't trade for this again.

lovely brown color with an off white head that streaks down the sides of the glass,

Lovely aroma is a mixture of sour and sugary malts wonderful dark fruits, caramel, toffee, tart cherries, great porter like quality but full of fruit and light funk, really a very interesting and fun mix here. Smooth as silk with a great finish and wonderful back to it.
