I had this from the bottle via a tasting.

It pours a ruddy amber-raisin in color. The aroma reminds me of candied cherries with a light boozy kick. Tastes like a boozy whiskey maraschino cherry blend with a bitter, lingering, dry finish. I’d call it a muddled mess but for what it attempts I’d say its pretty close to the mark.

on-tap at the brewery

"This ale pays homage to the iconic whiskey cocktail. We brewed this 9.8% old ale with sweet cherries and orange zest, then aged it in whiskey barrels for 4 months to capture the essence of an old fashion. Rich bourbon and soft cherry notes roll into a warming finish on this fantastic ale."

Interesting idea - can't say I've seen this attempted before - this sucker is even garnished with orange peel. The nose is incredible - almost perfectly imitates the profile of an old fashioned with a huge blast of sweet cherry and candied orange. Unfortunately, the flavor profile really doesnt follow - it's not very sweet thankfully and rather has some nice whiskey notes and moderately bitter. Really interesting.

Served in a snifter

A- pours a dark ruby color with a small creamy white head, good retention

S-dark cherry and orange zest with some barrel notes producing vanilla and bourbon, nice malty sweetness at the end. It really does smell like an old fashioned

T- sweet dark cherry notes follow the aroma quite closely with some oaky vanilla and a touch of bourbon, zesty orange leads to a malty sweet finish, a bit of alcohol at the end

M- medium body with low carbonation, slightly foamy mouthfeel with a dry and warming finish

O- Really enjoyed this one, the cherry notes play well with the barrel flavors, suited well for whisky drinkers
