4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark amber reddish pour with small off white head. Aroma of rye malts, spices, oak, pepper and faint fruits and citrus. Taste of rye malts, peppery spice, oak, bread dough, faint nuttiness. Full bodied, medium carbonation, slightly dry bourbon finish. I love how they aged this beer, it just seems so complex with the different phases of rye coming through. Brilliant beer!

This smells of something sweet between fruit and toffee; its taste is smooth and not overpowering and it carries a strong aftertaste.

25.4oz bottle. Mahogany pour. Sweet citrus aroma. Flavor is amazing. Can feel the alcohol but in a good way. I simply want more. Whiskey barrels obvious but think rye brings it back to beer. Upset girlfriend only bought one bottle

Love it. I’m not sure if it’s the specific rye barrel used or the base beer, but this has a balance to it that I’ve simply not seen in any beer at this ABV of this style. I’d call it a ’green apple’ twang, but it’s simply delicious. The nose is fruity with a whisky overtone, and it’s just plain awesome. So many times a barrel aged ale turns cloying and overdone -- this doesn’t. I wish I could get more of it.

Pours a light Cola brown, almost red color with a whiskey aroma. Taste is distinctly alcohol with a small cherry aftertaste. A nice beer that doesnt bide the alcohol content well.

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.
