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 clear copper orange with a moderate white head. Aroma is caramel malt, dark fruit and whiskey. Taste follows with rye malt and vanilla. Boozy! Enjoyed off the tap at Hop Yard. Very enjoyable.

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.

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

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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
