Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a snifter. This is a 2014 version. Reviewed from notes from earlier tonight.

Appearance: Pours brown with a reddish hue. No head whatsoever.

Smell: Cherry, milk chocolate, bourbon, toasted oak.

Taste: Chocolate, malts, vanilla, molasses, cherry, roasted malts. The cherry is more subdued than in the aroma.

Mouth-feel: Flat with a medium to thick, slightly sticky body. I miss the carbonation.

Overall: Nice sweet flavors mask the ABV well. Really nice Aroma. The carbonation does make a big difference though.

12 oz bottle, dated 2014. Pours dark brown with no real carbonation.

The aroma is bourbon chocolate cherries.

The flavor is sweet malts, strong bourbon alcohol, dark fruits, roast chocolate and slightly tart cherry. There's a little harsh alcohol in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with no carbonation.

Overall, a nice decedent beer.
