I enjoyed this beer at the Blue Point brewery, which was served on tap. This beer had a deep color and had many subtle notes. Overall i enjoyed this beer but beware of the alcohol content. the many tastes mask the flavor of the alcohol.

Cask at Gingerman Norwalk. Pours amber with a tan head. Smells of rye, some boozy bourbon, vanilla, dry oak. Tastes of rye, some boozy hints, syruppy. I like the regular version much more.

Cask at The Brazen Head. Deep amber beer. The aroma is loaded with bourbon and a bit of light toasted oakiness. Chewy light sweetness and a bit of nice vineous character. Chewy and a little bit sweet with the bourbon adding a nice complexity to the rye, which also shows up nicely in here. Soft carbonation and a nice silky mouthfeel. Lingering caramelly malt. A touch of soft toastiness. Pretty nice really.

On cask at Stout NYC. Pours amber without much head. Aroma is rye, leather (old boot?), fruit notes, and tiny bit of hops. Flavor is rye, spice, roasted malt, and slightly fruity. Interesting and complex as there is a lot going on in this beer. I thought it was just OK.

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - MAY 3, 2009
Cask at the Brazen Head: Amber pour with a wispy light tan head. Nice fruity hop notes in the aroma of peach and mango mesh with a soft crystal sweetness and a subtle vanilla-ish bourbon and oak presence. Silky on the palate- the flavor also has a nice fruity hop presence (peachy) and its balanced by a firm toasted caramel/crystal; base. The bourbon presence is subtle and offer just a nuance of mild vanilla. Balanced and quite nice.
