Tap at H24, Pugafest 2013. Nice, giant head formation. Nose is odd tomato, some diacetyl, slick margarine. Taste is sweet cola, very sugary, mild butter, hints of macadamia cookie and short bread. Eh.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a murky brown color. Only some notes from the Rye Whiskey play through. There is a bit of pie spice in here and the strong ale is a good solid base for the other flavors that are piled on. At the 2012 Barrel Aged Beer Event.
