It had too much fruit taste.

Pours dark brown with thin, dissipating head. Smell is roasted malts and berries. The cherries come through brilliantly but then balanced with dark roasted malts. Mouthfeel is slightly less than many other BC beers, but still fantastic.

Dark brown color with brown head. Aroma is fruity and roasty with cherry liquor and dried plums. Taste is sweet at first but is balanced quickly by roasted malt bitterness and some fruit acidity. Medium plus body with medium minus carbonation. Really well balanced, fruit forward RIS.

Thanks to eye for sending this one! Reviewed from notes. Poured from a 16.9 oz. bottle into El Catador Barrel-Aged glass.

A: Very dark brown and opaque, with a half-finger of tan head. Low visible carbonation, and the head fades fairly quickly.

S: Chocolate and bourbon up front, then the berry sweetness, Vanilla and oak and toasted malts. A mild salinity is there, along with the oak tannins and some more booze.

T: Chocolate and blackberries, bourbon and oak. Heavily toasted malts with dark coffee. Mildly tart blackberries mix with the savory salt. Some heavily toasted toffee and a mild roast bitterness. Some brandy cherries at the swallow. More cacao and chocolate and oak in the hang with lingering bourbon. Of note, the cherries along with a mild tartness grows as the beer warms through the drink.

M: Overall a heavy body, but a bit lighter than expected. Low carbonation sensation, and the alcohol is well-integrated for style.

O: Not a bad beer, but a bit disappointing. The berries don't shine as much as I'd hoped, and the barrel balance isn't as good as some variants from other years. The berries also serve to lighten the body a little in an unwelcome way. Certainly a solid beer, but a letdown from what I expected.

Dark pour, with a tan head that doesn’t leave too much residual lace.

Tons of dark fruit and chocolate on the nose. Fruity jam and aged fruit make up the majority of aromas here.

Super jammy, cherries and raspberries really come out. Cherry cordials.
Very sweet. Chocolate and hints of roast really emerge.

Creamy, smooth, light burn, booze. Great body. Helps round out this beer.
