This beer is the Captains Stout aged in whiskey barrels with I believe two different types of cherries. It was named after Tom Nickel because he was the one that suggested brewing it. Thank you Tom.
This beer pours a jet black color with a thin, creamy tan head. The head fades slowly, leaving a good lacing.
The aromas of this beer are surprisingly subtle. I smell some whiskey aromas. A mils dour cherry aroma mixes in. Some oaky hints are also present. Also, I can detect a slight vanila aroma.
As with the aroma, the flavors in this beer are very subtle. Sour cherries up front, with a nice mild whiskey flavor. I taste the oak from the barrels also. A very slight vanila flavor is also present.
This beer goes down very smooth, leaving a slightly sour aftetaste, with a touch or whiskey. The carbonation is low, but well for the beer.
I think this beer would make a good session beer. The only problem I can see is that maybe the whiskey flavor would get old, but is it subtle enough to help prevent that from hapening.
Overall: I liked this beer, as I knew I would. I have never had anything from Alpine that was less than great.
