Christmas bottle courtesy of Zac. Murky bronze color with a nice tan head. Gentle aroma of sweet caramel and banana. The rye shows up in the flavor with a spicy kick. A little lingering warming booze. Pleasant.

I really want to like this more than I do, maybe as it warms up it will open up. Great sweet scents mixed with hints of malt, alcohol and ale. Really deep amber color with lots of sediment. Has a nice subtle sweet flavor up front, with strong alcohol on the back end. It's a bit cold, so I assume it will open up more as it sits here

A very nice, boozy and interesting strong rye. Pours a beautiful bright cloudy orange-red with a white head. Smells abut fruity, of berries. Taste is creamy and boozy off the bat, with more berries, a bit of vanilla cream and marshmallow, and a good amount of rye spiciness in the finish. Quite good

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a dark amber color. Has no lacing due to the high ABV....smells like vanilla and caramel with similar tastes. Finishes warm....shit load of bourbon flavor here. A good beer, but rough on your sobriety.
