Draft. Pours blackish brown with tiny bubble off white head notes of apples, whiskey, plum, vanilla. Crazy smooth and drinkable for a whiskey aged beer. Medium body and carbonation.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a reddish brown with a small tan head. Aroma is of rye whisksy, toasted malts, nuts, rye bread, and molasses. Taste is about the same as the aroma. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel, semi bitter, medium finish. Overall, a interesting brown ale that tastes a lot like whiskey.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at PP OB. Clear ruby brown with a one finger beige head, good retentio . Fresh whiskey in the nose with some nutty toasty malt, a little oak. No old barrel at all. Flavor has a little vanilla added, but still retains the fresh boozy character. Is this their own spirit? Seems like it, though I didn’t know that they did a rye whiskey. Finishes dry, bitterness a 2. Light to medium body with low carbonation. Good.
