3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
A very simple beer. Taste and aroma of wood, bourbon and rye. Not much to complex, plain and a little boring.

Serving: 750 ml. bottle. Deep, ruddy pour with a small, light tan head. Bready nose with a little bubble gum and Belgian yeast. Spiced bread, rye whiskey, light caramel, and bubble gum. Comes across as more alcoholic than it is.

Pours a rusty amber color with two fingers of eggshell foam. The nose is pretty straight forward with some bready caramel, spicy whisky and rustic grain. Palate follows the nose but the barrel flavors are well subdued and the beer just taste a bit lifeless. Still not a bad beer just nothing that excited the palate. Spicy earth from the rye mingles nicely with the sweet toffee, vanilla and bourbon nuttiness.

Amber red pour with a nice khaki head. Nice aroma, plenty of whiskey pops through, bits of oak, vanilla, caramel, and a touch of spicy bread. Nice flavor, sweet whiskey complements the nice malt base with a touch of spice. Nice.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
6 oz. pour at Farmhouse Tap & Grill. Hazy amber color with very little head retention. Aroma is weak rye and weak bourbon. The flavor is mild rye, weak caramel and a note of astringent sour oak. The biggest flavor is the whisky / bourbon notes. In fact it is mostly bourbon with the other flavors being subdued by it. But the bourbon character is also weak. The body is thin and watery. Major let down here and this was a draft sample…. Yeah, glad I didn’t buy a bottle.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thanks to errl for sharing this bottle. While the recent reviews are positive, the bottle we had was definitely off. Pours and amber color with a white head. The aroma has some oak and rye notes, but there is also a strong presence of plastic. The flavor is a bit better, but still not up to what other reviews say it is/should be. There is some tobacco and toffee character, but the plastic and dirt are also present. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear deep amber under a thin ring of foam that lasts. Lovely nose of sweet toffee malts and caramelly whiskey with some oak tones and bready rye. Smooth and complex flavor of rye dough, caramel, whiskey, oak, a light tone of char, and nutty sweet malts. The rye whiskey tone is smooth and sweet and delightful, not overbearing. Wonderful.

Draft pour. Pours a clear copper with no head. The aroma has big smoke and booze. Some caramel and toffee notes as well. The taste is heavy on the booze profile. Sticky mouthfeel. Low carbonation.
