4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled from the brewery. Hazy mahogany color with minor lacing and beige swirls. Beautiful aroma filled with vanilla, oak, coconut, brown sugar and raisin oatmeal cookies. Really nice. Flavor leans sweet with a touch of smoke and more vanilla. Light whiskey character on the finish. Medium bodied and light carbonation. Awesome palate. Really damn good but i still liked the original bourbon version a bit more. Well done Alesmith!

750ml bottle pours a murky amber with some spitty, white head. Nose has booze, vanilla, rye, pepper, caramel, mild spice, a bit cakey. Flavor is boozy, sweet malt, spice, brown sugar, vanilla, plenty of barrel. Full bodied, sticky finish but very smooth. Finish really makes it.

750cl 19/09/2013, thanks FatPhil, 20150926) Extremely malty, and boozy. No noticeable rye as was expected. Sweet, kind of like melted vanilla ice cream in a barley wine. Probably missed the point here.

750 ml bottle shared by phaleslu. Pours a clear dark amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have big, sweet malts, caramel, brown sugar, dark fruits, up front barrel showcasing the rye whiskey, spicy, wood, warming alcohol, I am a fan of this treatment of an already solid beer.
