Nom nom this is soooo good. Clean balance of rye sweet syrups a balance of fruity hops a warm swallow .. One of my favorite the rye is the best compliment yet.

Westmeister (1954) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 19, 2014
Shared with the crew thanks to jrob21’s hussle. Was very excited to try not knowing it was the more difficult to obtain ( I assume) rye version. Lots of sweet vanilla, cherry fruits, nice rye spice, lots of barrel character. Booze does show a good bit, but it was not detracting. Loved this and if it wasn’t for BA Speedway, it would have been the best of show.

750 with the crew as part of most of Alesmith day. Chewy malt with lots of molasses and frut. Raisin working in there as well. Good barleywine fruit. The rye comes through with some spice on the back end of the palate. Still a little bourbon hot alcohol so could lay down for another little while. Don’t get me wrong though, this is still a phenomenal drink.

Bottle @ ZZT X, small sample, thanks all for sharing! Copper color, short head. Aroma of rye whisky, cookie, biscuit. Bit sweet in taste. Rye barrel suits the beer much better than the alcoholic brandy.
