Awesome Rye. Dark pour with a tight head. Aroma of Rye bread with a whiskey finish. I am not much on Rye whiskey but this hits the spot. The citrus hops accompany well.

Not always a rye beer fanatic but I liked the mix of bourbon with bourbon rye. I felt the rye malt itself in the beer form tonded down the boozy notes a bit.

Awesome-looking beer, dark brown/amber w/ a voluminous white head.. Profound aroma w/ rye whiskey prominent, pleasant malty backbone, dates, brown sugar.. same profile in the mouth, really delicious, complex, myriad of malty flavors married with sharp rye character, a little heat, liqueur-like.. great.

Pours dark cloudy ruby red with a lot of fluffy tan head. Smells of rye bread. Taste reminds me of good bourbon; sweet, rich and just barley sour. Spicy and warming on the finish. If you’re like me and enjoy whiskey then this one is for you

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750mL bottle, pours a cloudy maroon with a small white head. Aroma of caramel, dried fruits, rye bread and whiskey - lots of depth. Flavour brings out lots of figs and dates, rye whiskey barrels, rye bread and rich caramel -some slight spices in there too, ABV is completely hidden. Very deep and full-bodied, sort of like a rye-induced scotch ale. Very expertly made.
