This is one of the best beers that Deep Ellum has ever made. The beer has a delicious bourbon flavor with a sweet malt.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 22 oz bomber into a pint glass. Deep ruby red with a one finger off white head leaving plenty of lace.

Lots of dark fruit in the nose. Plenty of barrel with vanilla and whiskey make this one smell really good. I don't notice the resiny hop aroma that many mention, but I may not be fully tuned to it.

Front of the taste is great. Smooth, the bourbon, vanilla, and dark fruit mix really well and sweet. Very good. However, on the back, the alcohol and hoppiness was distracting. Maybe aging this one would file off the rough edges a bit.

The mouthfeel was good. Fizzy, yet thick, as it should be.

Overall a really good tasting beer, just wasn't keen on the bite toward the finish. Going to try and get another one and age it.

Poured into a small sampler glass. Deep amber color with a thin off-white head.

Sweet black cherries and figs with some ethanol aromas.

I get an intensely sweet malt and saccharine syrup. The same cherry and fig flavors are here, as well as a slight floral hops bitterness.

Full bodied, with long-lasting sticky mouthfeel. Would do again.
