4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2013 Editing with a fresh bottle from 2013 now that it is a limited release.
A: Floral, caramel, butterscotch maybe? a woody note... like an oak or so. Hint of malt. Perfectly balanced.
A: Carbonation looks good. Head retention is on the money. Color is a nice brownish red.
T: As the smell. This bottle seems to have a bit more of a wood note than those Iíve had in the past.... Otherwise extremely balanced with a great floral note, sweet note, caramel. On second edit this fresh bottle has a lot more hops which take over a little bit.
P: Flavor development is great with the best flavor notes coming through. Finish is clean and lingering taste is as complex as the rest of the beer.
I grabbed this beer because itís switching to seasonal and itís one of the best Iíve ever had. Crazy complex, easy to drink yet full bodied. Bitter, but with other great tastes. A nearly flawless beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle in pint glass from The Drinkery, Londonderry NH. Aroma is yeasty dough with sweet floral notes. Appearance is hazy dark red-brown with trace sparkle and small off-white head with decent lacing. Taste is medium sweet with light sour. Palate is medium bodied with thick texture, average carbonation and slightly spicy finish. Overall, this beer was more yeasty and less hoppy than one would expect. It was also quite old so I donít think this is the most representative rating. Iíll have to re-rate in the future.

UPDATED: MAR 3, 2015 Tap. This fell a bit short for me. Not sure if i just donít like rye or if the way this beer incorporates it. Drinkable but not my thing.
