750. No feathers. Thanks, J! Pours a murky dark amber with a dense and creamy tan head that goes away right away. Big funky wet-grain nose, doesn’t smell as appetizing as it turns out to taste. Creamy thick body, almost sticky. Soft carb. Big heavy darkly toasted caramel mid palate, with apricots and vanilla knocking around. Heavy, semi-sweet finish.

Bottle shared by Jacob at the meeting tonight, thanks for the opportunity!
Spicy rye with a hint of maltiness. Light spirit flavor and heat. Decent drinker, but I wanted more body or sweetness to play off the spiciness of this brew.

This draft brew from a restaurant poured a extremely small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were fully diminished and left behind a no visible carbonation semi-opaque light orange brown colored body and a poor lacing. The almost non-existent aroma was malty. The semi-dry crisp mouth feel was very tingly at the start and at the finish with a mellow hoppy aftertaste. The balanced flavor contained notes of rye wood mild nut mild hops and crisp. An OK brew just nothing special.

Appearance is red with bone head. Flavor is right on the nose; though the bourbon shines through more than the rye malts, imo. The finish is slightly resiny a little booze. Palate is bubbly with slight liveliness.

Bottle... Pours clear and Longhorn-orange with a small, fizzy, white head that dissipates faster than you can say "quick!" The aroma is a mishmash of rye grain, rye whisky and mellow notes of oaken barrel, sticky caramel and tea biscuit. Full-bodied with a fatty mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. The flavor is a boozy, malty marriage of caramel and a rye-whiskey barrel offering notes of grainy rye and black tea instead of overbearing alcohol heat. This is very enjoyable, but not mind-bending. The bottle is the ugliest thing I’ve seen in quite a while. Fun stuff. Bottle courtesy of StFun!
