3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Brewdog levels of bottle gimmickery aside, the beer pours a hazy reddish-brown color with a medium light beige head that diminishes steadily. Partial rings of lacing. Aroma of rye whisky, fruit and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of spicy rye, booze, caramel malt and ripe fruit. The finish is oaky vanilla and spiced rye. Above average overall.

Aroma is like fresh rye bread. Flavor is like pumpernickel with a bit of tang. Excellent body. Ditto appearance. Super drinkable.

Bottle pours clear tan, white billowing head. Rye in the nose. Taste is rye, slightly sweet. Minimal notion of barrell treatment. Medium body. Somewhat disappointing given the hype and ratings.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thick, yellowish dense head, over clear chestnut beer, well-carbonated. Alcoholic, "hot" nose, liqueurish, some vanilla, and a very faint waft of patchouli, praliné chocolate, sweet. Dry, bitterish, leafy, and a faint but present Bourbon-like vanilla flavour in the back. Bit herbal finish. Very slick-oily, medium to well-bodied, alcoholwarming, well-carbonated feel. Nice, if a tad neutral.

750 ml Bottle. Pours a cloudy, coppery amber color topped with an inch of light reddish brown foam. Notes of fruity esters, brown sugar, tart fruit and toasted oak in the nose. The flavor is a blend of rye whiskey, caramel malt and raisins with a bit of sour funk around the edges. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with Belgian Ale style strong carbonation and more rye and wood in the finish.

Bottle, a cool one! This one did explode! Pours slight cloudy amber with one finger beige cream head. Aroma is malty, caramel, strawberrie, yam, rye spice, whisky, slight toast, Taste is toasty malts, fruity, yam, caramel strawberrie, nice whisky booze. Bit thin body with low carbonation, probably because of the explosion, quite a shame. Dry whisky finish. Well balanced.

draft sampler this was the barrel aged version. and it poured a medium yellow with white head. appeared to be whiskey barrels, but I could be wrong. got the rye spice in the nose and in the flavor and that oaky woody barrel taste. thought this would be different but its not...I don’t know but just wasn’t a fan of this one.
