A - Very dark cherry. No head after pour.

S - Sweet as well as tart cherries.

T - Gueuze-like lactic tartness. Earthiness and bourbon. Cherry reappears to lend sour fruit character.

M - Quite thick, with medium carbonation.

O - Earthiness lends complexity and interest. Worthy trying.

Poured brown in color with pale yellowish brown highlights and a thin head that had absolutely no head and left nothing whatsoever sticking to the glass. Plenty og bourbon barrel character upfront in the aroma with signs of vanilla, subtle cherry fruit, mild booze presence, dark fruit notes and a little citrus zing hidding in the background. The vanilla was more dominent on the palate with nice tasty cherry flavor, good bourbon barrel wood accents, mild booze notes, a touch of plum dark fruit and underlying brown sugar. The brew was medium in body with low amount carbonation which had a sweet, fruity, mild boozy, bourbon barrel and tart finish. Very good variation of the base beer ans very glad I got to try it. Good lookin out beezler!

04AUG12 - at barrel house. From the live cask.

This beer blew my mind. I would pay $25 for 12oz of this, and buy a case. Seriously.

Nice and dark brown with cherry hues. Flat appearing. (This beer will get inflated appearance score simply because I feel it deserves it based on the overall experience) The Nose is cherry - sweet, dark cherries. Sherry, oak, vanilla, tawny port, caramel, hints of sour cherries as well. I spent quite a bit of time in the glass of this beer. Then ordered more to share with the wife. I can't articulate the nose on this beer. Flavor was a blend of ruby and 10yr tawny ports, vanilla, cherry, slightly sour, leather, tobacco, tanning oils, slightly toasted sugars. Fuck, I don't know - the stuff you wanna taste - it was here. Full bodied with a viscous finish and velvety feel.

Please, make more.
