A – Looks like a blood red purple reddish brown ale with a 1 finger pinkish head.

S – Smells great. Lots of berry aroma, a faint barrel aroma and almost no whiskey

T – Well, in the taste, the whiskey is much more pronounced. Bramble out the wazoooooo. Juicy, bright, fruity. There is some shoe-polish here which is really unfortunate.

M – good dense mouthfeel but thins out at the finish

O – This was a good beer but the whiskey barrel actually took away from that.
