the low ratings on this one frustrate me...it seems like people arent considering what this beer is and just saying its not FO or DSN so its not a top notch BA beer...anyways, let me hop off my soap box and rate it.
l: brown, cola body. head is tan but then actually shifted to a beautiful rose color. unlike anything i have ever seen.
s: sweet bourbon, honey, roses, berries. very complex, and very nice. initially i get a little boozy heat but the flavors rush in behind that and correct any initial impression that this beer is hot and boozy.
t: very unique. the flavors sprint across the palate ferociously, i am not expert so i will not be able to accurately depict the experience but will do my best...juice,berries,honey,caramel,bourbon,flowers,a little heat then a rush of all of the aforementioned flavors combined
m: sticky, what you would expect for the abv and profile. right where i think this beer needs to be. any thicker and it would have a milkshake body without the heavy taste to match, any thinner and it would feel like a beer that has flavors beyond its depth.
o: incredibly enjoyable beer. if you are looking for a barrel aged strong ale that is dark and hits you in the face this is not it but if you are looking for something interesting, complex and unique this will check all three boxes and then some.

Bottle from the brewery. Very little head. Caramel ruby brown.

A lot going on here. Honey, berries, bourbon, oak, and vanilla. Very sweet, but very warming. Fruity with a hint of tartness.

Smooth with a lower amount of carbonation. Very nice feel.

This was a very well done braggot. Lots of awesome flavors.

Rated per style. Poured from a 500ml bottle a dark crimson red in a dark crimson place with a thin rim-lined tannish head which leaves a couple of spots of lace. Aroma is honey sweetness and berry fruity, faint vanilla and bourbon. Flavor is sweet, sweet, sweet, with lingering sweetness. Yeah, marionberries, sure they are there. Full body and light carbonation for the style. Not very herbal, but plenty of boozy heat on the finish. Enjoyed.
