3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
The beer pours a hazy mahogany color with a tan head. The aroma is strong rye with some oak notes and dark fruit. The flavor is very nice with rye, cherries, vanilla, oak and a strong, spicy hops and rye finish. The alcohol is fairly noticeable. Medium mouth feel and medium carbonation. Tastes better than the smell. But a solid brew.

Bottle pours cloudy dark brown with full off-white fairly persistent head. Aroma mainly malts and rye whiskey. Taste sweet malts, rye and whiskey. Palate thin and highly carbonated with a nice tingle. Finish a little hop dullness with whiskey burn. Alcohol quite apparent.
I enjoyed this quite a bit. Not particularly complex but pretty good.

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.
