A decent offering, well worth the money and i’d definitely get it again. Just didn’t knock my socks off. Just a bit too big of flavors for me. It was booze and spice from the rye. Nothing really else. Seemed like a bit of a hot mess, but ther flavors that were there were pretty nice.

Bottle… Tally Tasting ‘10… Clear amber ale with a mid-sized, white head. Good retention. The nose is of spicy hops and spicy grain. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. Spicy, coarse, dry flavor and finish.

Bottle thanks to drfabulous. Pours a very dark amber, almost reddish. Nose and taste of rye, caramel malts and whiskey barrel. Very smooth and tasty with slight whiskey aftertaste. I also detect some subtle grape and vinous notes.
