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.

A nice bourbon rye overall. Pours a cloudy Amber with a tan head. Smells of cherries, strawberries and a bit of caramel and vanilla. Taste is crisp, like a pale ale, with some bourbon and vanilla. Had in the bottle.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from starcross -- cheers! Opened at a tasting of barrel-aged beers, and this one came across as distinctly "light". Thereís some good rye flavor (somewhere between spiciness and earthiness), and the aroma of rye whisky is definitely there. However, itís a bit too muddled and sticky, and it didnít stand out next to a lot of the other beers we tried.
