3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Caponeís. Pours thick jet black with 1-finger tan head and concentric lace rings that stay around forever. Nose is roasty chocolate malt, corn flakes, oaky whisky, cacao, prune. Tastes rich, dry, complex, with a roasty chocolate malt flavor, cacao, blackberry, oaky port, hops, and black cherry notes. Well hidden alcohol. This one is very good, and an example of barrel aging done the correct way, the best beer by Full Pint, and proof that these guys are on their way up the ladder.

Bottle @ home. Thanks, Jake. Just about black in color with a small off-white head. Graham cracker, roasted malt, and some dark chocolate. A little bit of dark fruits. Flavor is kind of sweet and chocolatey. Sweet vanilla, oak, and cocoa powder. A touch on the bitter side.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 Fl. Oz bottle. Poured dark (almost black) brown, small brown head and nice lacing all over the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, wood and some chocolate. Creamy texture and medium body; taste is a nice combination of rye, dark fruit, roast notes and a touch of bourbon. Alcohol is actually quite well hidden making it a very drinkable beer; not bad at all.

How could one argue about this one? Dark and rich with the rye balance and backing. Hides the 11% well as its not too boozy.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, and a touch of rye whiskey. Pours a pitch black with just a ring of light tan foam. If you donít like whiskey stay away from this one, the rye whiskey comes in strong at the beginning, fading over to rye malts, then to a touch of roast and chocolate. Long lingering roasted finish, with a full body and a slick mouthfeel. I enjoy it, but if you donít like barrel aged items, donít like rye whiskey, or donít like rye, stay away from this one.

Not bad. Some decent spicy rye whiskey barrel in kind of a thinner body. Some coffee and thinner body than what it should be. Little homebrew taste to it. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle from Brian - thanks again! Pours a dark brown, clear amber at the edges and opaque in the middle with beige spots and a ring. Aroma of whiskey, rye, charred oak, brown sugar, caramel apple, and dark fruits. Boozy flavor- whiskey, oak, dark fruits, burnt sugar, tobacco, and rye. Harshly alcoholic, with a light-medium body and low carbonation. Kind of flat, really. Uneven. Disappointing.
