The beer pours a cloudy amber brown with a good amount if sediment settled in the glass and topped by a thin, off white head. The nose is tart cherries, a hint of bourbon, some spice and booze. There's a similar cherry spice character in the taste which transitions into a sweet bourbony, citrusy aftertaste. The mouthfeel is definitely sweeter cherries upfront, followed by a dry, boozy citrusy finish. This beer delivers on the bourbon and cherry front, but is a bit sweeter than expected. Delightful beer with some distinct cherries and barrel characteristics, unsure how it will age.
