750 mL bottle. Pours black with no head. Smells like chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, and cherries. A little acidity. Tastes of chocolate. Vanilla. Sour cherries. Heavy oak. Dark cherry sourness. Bourbon in the finish. Medium body. Low carbonation. I did not expect to like this. I’m glad I chased it. It’s different and nontraditional, but really tasty.

Purple colored beer, no head, carbonation noticeable. Ugh. Dark fruit fig and prune aroma, with old wood notes. The emperor has no clothes.

Taste was flat, lacked sour notes, barely tasted tart, wasn't really a beer it seemed, seemed more akin to a blend of wine and liquors. Not impressed.

The carbonation was little to none but I was pre-warned about that so not unexpected. The taste was a wonderful mix of cherries, chocolate and bourbon. A little carbonation would have made this almost perfect. All the haters of this beer are wrong; a fantastic beer IMO.

This was an extremely interesting beer with bourbon barrel aged stout and sour character, it was incredible.
