Pours a deep red wine color with a small white foamy head. Toffee, vanilla, and oak on the nose. Starts with an alcohol oak, then turns into a vanilla bourbon with notes of dark fruit, and finishes with earthy bittering hops. Mouthfeel is a moderate, it's thin but does coat the mouth well enough. Overall, interesting, I like the complexity but even though I let it warm, still wanted more fruit notes.

Delicious. Look was dark pink, smell was sweet. Taste was smooth, feel was smooth, and I give the over all a 4.25

Gusher. Clearly infected. Smelled of buttery popcorn. Tasted and felt like butter.
