Bottle: Poured a deep red color ale with a nice large pink foamy head with OK retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of intense cherry notes with plenty of oak and tart/acidic notes are also discernable. Taste is also a mix of oak and tart cherry notes with very little residual sugar notes, some acidic flavours are also perceptible. Body si full for style with good carbonation. Very enjoyable take of the style but I would prefer a bit less acidity.

This was the 2012 vintage. 750 mL bottle. The body was mahogany with a tan/reddish head. A cap/film remained throughout.

The smell was bourbon and wood.

The taste was tart cherries. Wood and vanilla. Some brown sugar notes. Not harsh in any way. Not boozy but plenty of bourbon character. Well constructed.

The mouthfeel was medium bodied with plenty of carbonation.
