Bottled April 22, 2020. Pours thick, brownish black thick sludge, with a fine brown head. Smells is rich, lots of sweet bourbon, subtle rye. Insanely thick and creamy body, pretty boozy. Roasty, bitter, chocolate, loads of rye. Bit too much barrel for me.

Canned on 05-12-22. Dark slightly reddish brown, lots of dense tan head. Smells lagery, some coffee, malt. Light body, but creamy and a bit chewey. Taste is on the bitter side, with plenty of toasty coffee. Saaz is there, but roast comes first. Not bad!

Deep dark red, viscous but a bit thin looking. Smell is is super rich, sweet, intense cherry extract. Mouthfeel is thick syrup, sticky, bit boozy. Taste is rich, sweet but not overly so, and all cherry, in its most intense form. Sweet, juicy, tiny tart.

Hazy orange, fine white head. Smells very fruity, bit sweet, juicy, citrus. Lovely soft body. Taste is very refreshing with loads of fruityness, both from juice extract and hops. Fresh citrus, summer. Pretty sweet too, there's really no lactose in this?
Very dark, and for some reason: very peaty. Rich, bit boozy but nowhere near 15%, lots of rich, meaty peatyness. Feels a bit off for the style description, but it works quite well with the barrels somehow. Little bit different.
More or less what I was expecting from the description. Plenty of fairly sweet white wine, general tropical fruity flavours, and a slight touch of bretty goat. Refreshing and summery, lightly tart. Not complex, but not bad at all.
