look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Pours a ruddy garnet color, perfectly clear, a hint of carbonation visible. Starts off with a nice one finger head which lasts for about half the beer, then recedes to a thin white ring with a few small puddles of white floating atop.

S - Sweet cheeries (reminds me of kirsh liqueur). Caramel malts. Warming alcohol. Some other dark fruits like prunes and raisins.

T - Much like the nose. Lots of malt and cheeries and other dark fruits. Long and sweet, with a bit of spice.

M - Medium to thick, chewy. Low carbonation. Nice carbonation at the end.

D - Pretty good, but it is a bit sweet for my palate and I couldn't drink more than two, but this is pretty darn good for the style.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

2012 release; poured into a goblet

A: Clear amber. Some lacing. An off-white half finger head that dissipates quickly.

S: Bready malts, grain, hay, barley.

T: Sweet, malty with molasses and bourbon heavily mixed in. Nutty. A bit of chocolate. Very smooth. Almost like a shot of Kentucky bourbon. Nice.

M: Medium with medium carbonation.

O: Looks like a year really set this one straight. A great sipper. The bourbon really makes this one a solid brew.
