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.

On tap at brewery. Cloudy medium brown with a thin off white head. Rye whiskey, molasses, and biscuit aroma. Biscuit, toffee, molasses, eye whiskey and oak, sweet grain, and a caramel flavor to the finish. Thick bright and creamy palate. Excellent.

ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - NOV 15, 2013
750ml bottle, courtesy of my buddy Tim. thanks! pours a hazy, russet color capped by a creamy, beige head that leaves thick sheets of lace. aroma is wonderful with heavy notes of caramel, toffee, candied pineapple, raisins, and figs back by toasted coconut, charred oak, and subtle hints of rye whisky. flavor is simply outstanding with sweet toffee, yellow cake batter, coconut cookies, and vanilla up front with dark fruits, hints of chocolate covered orange, oak, and dry, spicy rye whisky bringing up the back end. palate is full bodied and dangerously drinkable by moderate carbonation and a great balance of the spicy, woody barrel notes and the sweet barleywine notes. overall, another world class barrel aged beer from Alesmith.

ansalon (2107) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - NOV 15, 2014
Pours cloudy deep mahogany with a medium off white head. Aromas of caramel, figs, dates, cognac marinated raisins. Quite complex and warming. Taste is fucking amazing! Caramel, bourbon, raisins, toffee, figs and towards the end some sherry notes. Mouthfeel is incredible smooth with low carbonation. Aftertaste is quite mellow with some very nice alcohol warmth. Fantastic!

Marsiblursi (3070) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 29, 2014
(Bottle) Pours dark reddish brown with small nougat coloured head. The aroma holds lots of sweet fruits, barrels, caramel, toffee and floral/earthy hops. The flavour is near medium sweet, light to medium bitter and tiny acidic. Super fruity, caramel, bread, rye, barrel and balanced hops. The mouthfeel is round with a soft carbonation. Fruity and oaky finish. Medium to full bodied.

BOLTZ7555 (2999) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - DEC 7, 2013
UPDATED: APR 6, 2014 Bottle shared @ Dak’s Black Friday tasting. Again, think this was brought by JBoan but correct me if I’m wrong. Dark chestnut pour with scarlet and garnet making a statement as well. Moderate cashew colored cap. Caramel, vanilla, raw wood, toasted oak, black pepper, rye, cocoa, and brown sugar. Thick, creamy, sweet but not cloying. Another incredible BA masterpiece from these guys.
