Poured from the bottle into a snifter glass at Smoke & Barrel DC, for the dc bottle share. From notes.

An amber to deep orange body, quite cloudy without much head presented.

Nose has a nice sense of mild fruit, that really goes to crab-apple territory. Highly dominating crab apples with a good tart sense. Not much else, but it's at least a good nose.

The crab-apple tartness does come off quite big in the palate but not overboard. There's some nice mild buttery mixing in the mid palate with the apple which hits really nicely. Some subtle funk notes come off on the finish also. Feel is about par for the course just a hint of wet but easy drinkability.

Overall it reminds me of a bit of apple butter character and a toned down Weyerbacher Riserva. Still decent even for a one tricky pony like sense.

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.
