3.75/5  rDev -16.1%

Poured into a tulip. 2011 vintage.

3.75 A: Pours a deep plum color. Some yeasties hanging out at the bottom of the glass. One finger of frothy beige head. Retention is about average and a half finger of lacing is left.

3.75 S: Well, this definitely has some cherries in it. Big, bold, beautiful cherries. Tart and delicious. I'm not detecting much bourbon at this point, but the barrel itself is quite present lending a soft tannic woodiness. Not much funk as this more showcases tartness and sour punches. Nice acetic acidity. Toastiness, mixed berries, sour plum, and a touch of lemon.

3.75 T: This pretty much mirrors the nose. Big, bold cherry. Moderate sour tanginess with plenty of tartness. Lemon, plum, black and blueberries. Toastiness, touch of neutral maltiness. Bit of earthy funk.

3.75 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation with a light spritziness. Super smooth with a tart finish.

4.00 D: Very good beer. Didn't get much bourbon, but that's probably a good thing since it didn't need any other flavors.

This was the 2012 vintage. 750 mL bottle. The body was mahogany with a tan/reddish head. A cap/film remained throughout.

The smell was bourbon and wood.

The taste was tart cherries. Wood and vanilla. Some brown sugar notes. Not harsh in any way. Not boozy but plenty of bourbon character. Well constructed.

The mouthfeel was medium bodied with plenty of carbonation.
