Bottle. I really only gave this a second look because of the feathers on the bottle. Glad I did. The spice from the rye is the main thing in the aroma and the flavor. Spicy rye up front, then a bit of malt sweetness that leads you to a dry rye finish. wish I had more of this.

Smells a little nutty, a little barrelesc, a bit of heat from the whiskey. Glowing brown with light cover of head. Smooth almost mellow milk chocolate then then a woody vanilla carries it home. Amazing great smooth body.

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.

Bottle from starcross -- cheers! Opened at a tasting of barrel-aged beers, and this one came across as distinctly "light". There’s some good rye flavor (somewhere between spiciness and earthiness), and the aroma of rye whisky is definitely there. However, it’s a bit too muddled and sticky, and it didn’t stand out next to a lot of the other beers we tried.
