Small Tank Project Series: this is a strange brew from a strange brewer. Containing three varieties of rye, the beer is as viscous as motor oil - just how we like it. We used rye whiskey barrels from high west distillery in Park City, Utah and aged the beer for six months at temperatures that weren’t exactly by the book. It’s anything but ordinary, just like Bobby.

Bottle thanks to Matt. Pours a clear copper with small frothy white. The aroma is rye and roast. Thin mouth with light smoke and roast, strong rye, nice booze, very good.

"Seemingly hoppier in the nose than it really is thanks to shit tons of rye. Really nice beer at 10+%. Complex malts and spice, some earthy hops, and an increasing rye whiskey barrel presence as the beer warms. I really liked this one."

Red pour, not much head. Booze, caramel and some citrus. Booze a little too prominent. Ok head and lacing. Rye doesn’t help with big booze here. Bottle thanks to nimbleprop.

22oz bottle pours a hazy amber with a single ring of eggshell head. Nose has a ton of booze, nail polish, some dried fruit, some wood pulp, a little cleaning solution. Flavor is boozy, tart, raisins, dried apricot, vegetal, wood pulp. Sort of astringent, vegetal finish.

Lightly spicy, somewhat vegetal, caramel nose. Clear copper, medium yellow head. Wood, dried leaves, caramel flavor. Woody finish. Rustic, but too sweet.

22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours deep amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of a lot of caramel and toffee, a good amount of rye, some light oak and vanilla, and light bitterness. Flavor the same with a decent blend. Thicker texture. An interesting beer, but not the best.

cmonster (997) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Bottle. Pours like motor oil. Thick and viscous. Dense dark orange in color with a medium head. Decent retention and spotty lace. Bright, medium sweet, and spicy grain and vanilla oak aroma. Equally sweet flavor that finishes a quite bitter. Full body, thick texture, soft carbonation, and a lengthy finish. Very nice, strong beer.

Nice deep copper coloured body with a light brown glow, some hints of deep amber and a tint of ruby, all with a perfect, three centimetre tall tan head - this one is very nice looking. Aroma of alcohol, oak, rye, tobacco, bright hops and plenty of sugars. Full-bodied; Deep, super pungent alcohol and rye flavours with a lot of caramel, banana, clove, yeast and pit fruit flavours - very cloying on the finish and almost a meal in itself. Aftertaste shows a nice hoppy flavour with a lot of rye, somehow even more alcohol and a deep, syrupy, resinous, oaky and very dry rye and vanilla finish. Overall, a very pungent and super strong beer with some nice complexities and a solid balance between sweet, malt, oak and alcohol. I wish this was just in a small format bottle - the density and gravity of this beer is just too much to handle in 65 cL! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Belmont Station in Portland, Oregon on 12-April-2013 for US$12.47 sampled at home in Washington on 01-September-2013.
