Pours a deep ruby with a short-lasting light tan head. A little soapy lacing is left behind. The aroma is dark fruit, slightly tart like fresh sour cherries. The taste, though, is underwhelming. A little bit of the tartness remains, but disconnected from any other flavor. There isn't much of the bourbon barrel aging process noticeable either, beyond a hint of wood towards the back of the tongue. It also has a little bit of fizzy quality to the body, despite not much carbonation. It could be, and should be, much better.
