4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Murky muddy cloudy brown w/ a hint of red pour and a huge frothy small bubbled thick tan head w/ thick lacing. Aroma is delicious extremely well blended mix of sweet roasted malts some other light grains a good amount of sweetness hints of tobacco toffee mixed hops light citrus (very light) touches of grass and clearly whiskey and a hint of vanilla. Big rich full well coated thick palate. Flavor is delicious. Sweet and syruppy but well balanced with a lightly dry hoppy finish more of a floral taste with vanilla, the rye whiskey comes through clean and clear as a nice subtle addition with a slightly warm alcohol note in the swallow. This stuff is just flat out DELICIOUS! One of the best things I’ve tasted in quite a while.

Red waxed 75cl bottle, courtesy of a trade with . . . (sadly, don’t remember). It pours with a dark mahogany colored body that supports a nice looking tan head of foam. The aroma offers up malts, molasses, a malt sweetened rye twang, some spicy wood that has a pine hop feel to it and a faint sweet vanilla note. The taste is smooth and pretty rich. It delivers thick malt sweetened notes, sweetened rye and then a mild to slightly harsh booziness. Around the edges are thin rings of spicy oak and vanilla. Pretty darn nice.

2011 bomber. Nice brown pour. Nose of malt, booze, and vanilla. Taste follows the nose with some sharp rye spiciness. A little unpleasant bitterness on the back end. Not bad.

Dark brown, copper color. Small head. Whiskey aroma and aftertaste. Rye beer base not my favorite for a barrel aged beer but a decent brew anyway. Worth trying.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at the parentals with my dad. 2011 Vintage. Pour is murky brown with a very small tan colored head. Caramelly, bourbony, toffee, raisins, figgy, light grapefruity, sweet bready, and toasty aroma. Taste is sweet malty, caramelly, lightly alcoholic, toffee, figs, heavy bourbon, grass, and orange peels with a light bitter finish. Thick syrupy mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Decent stuff but is probably a bit past its prime at this point.

Bottle. Whiskey, grenadine, with a really high sugar content. Lots of candy notes, sometimes taffy or jelly beans. Thick body, long finish, very interesting.
