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:   Deep amber, thick, moderate to large frothy off-white head, nice lacing.   Sweet pale bready nose, strong melon and pale biscuity notes.   Strong breadiness up front, noticeable alcohol.   Has a heavy fruitiness to it as well.   If the Rye is there its real sweet.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Big pale bready finish, fruity, slight alcohol.   Not sure on the Rye aspect as this one seems too big that it overshadows any rye.   While not alcoholic, its very warming.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Bready finish, soft melon like fruitiness, slight alcohol.   Not all that easy to finish as its a little cloying.   Its like a big American Tripel that isn’t as sweet as others.   Meh... decent in small doses.   Took me a while to finish the bomber.

Murky amber pour with an off-white head. Pretty hoppy aroma. Very floral and a decent amount of citrus and vanilla. Tons of rye, oak, dark fruit, and malt sweetness. Flavor is a touch boozy, but not bad. Oak, rye, and dark fruit. Citrus zest, caramel, vanilla, and a bit of booze and bitterness on the finish.

Bottle... Poured dark ruby/amber with an easy forming beige-ish head. I heard this was quite hot when it was initially released so I sat on it for six months. Tasting great now. Good wood and barrel notes with a lot of the rye spice still shining. Earthy, and bready, dark fruit esters, with some vanilla and cookie dough notes. Whiskey notes but balanced and not too boozy.

Red Wax Dipped Bomber. Appearance is a cloudy ruby copper color with a thin cap of beige foam. Aroma is a mix of yeast, citrus and whiskey. The taste starts with a moderate dose of lemon, grapefruit and rye whiskey followed by notes of dark fruits and caramel. Mouthfeel is slightly syrupy with soft carbonation and a tart, alcohol-warming finish. Overall, a rich rye Barley Wine style brew.

2/22/13. Rare waxed dipped walez, bro! at RBWG thanks to Matt! Ruddy amber pour with a decent khaki head. Rich aroma with rye spice, plenty of whiskey and barrel character, and some sweet malts, caramel, and breadiness. Rich malty flavor as well, again with a big rye and rye whiskey punch, with a wisp of smoke and alcohol. Not bad.

Beerman6686 (4672) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 7, 2013
This poured a murky light brown color with a small beige head. Aroma was lots of rye, toffee, burnt sugar and not much else. Flavor was very sweet and cloying, somewhat metalic, astringent rye and lots and lots of alcohol heat. Not good.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours dark ruddy amber with a half finger creamy beige head. Aroma is roast malt with a fair amount of rye notes. Very full bodied. Creamy. Flavor is heat enhanced rye. Rye spice. It’s like a flavorful barley wine. Or perhaps a beer aged in fresh oak. If there were more fruit aspects it could be a fantastic quad. Super brilliant ale. Get it if you can.

Wax dipped rare beer. Fuck yeah! Nose of strong rye malt, caramel notes, nice sweetness, vanilla, wood, spicy rye whiskey, alcohol. Pours dark amber, thin white ring of foam around the edges. Flavors of rye whiskey up front, rye malts spicy sweet grain notes toasted brown bread, earthy hop notes, wood, a little vanilla. Thick body, medium carbonation. A little alcohol presence. Nice interesting beer.
