Bottle. Dark orange/brown pour. Smells of hops, malt, and alcohol. Tastes of the same with a slight alcohol burn in the finish. Another good big eddy.

This tastes like a barleywine, but with the added complexity and spicyness of the rye beer. A thick beer on the tongue, dark and rich.

Bottle poured into a shaker. From notes. Pours dark brown with a ruby hue. Aroma of dark fermented fruits with some molasses, a little red wine and some oatmeal. Taste is similar, more leaning towards the dark fruits and molasses. Sweet but dry in the finish. Overall, very enjoyable. Nothing crazy but something ill enjoy drinking.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice Crimson color with a khaki head. Nose has rye, spice, caramel, malts, citrus hops and yeasts. Flavor has strong spicy-rye notes upfront, followed by citrus hops, caramelized malts, barley, and ginger. Body is fairly heavy and thick; Carbonation is fairly mild but this beer is a sipper. Iím not exactly a big fan of rye but this was actually quite good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught. Pours a clear and very dark brown color with a slight tan head on it. Nose has some sweet characteristics to it, with some toastiness and dry red wine elements coming through; aroma is very strong, overall. Taste is actually pretty dry, with some of the toasting coming through as well, with a bit of a bite at the end.

This was a flat, not very flavorful rye wine. It has that oatmeally rye flavor but it isnt complex in the least. Very mild on the tongue.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle: Aroma of bready, rye malt forward with a decent hop backing. Appearance is a clear amber color with a thick off white head that lingers. Taste is rye, hard candy, slightly medicinal but in a good way, and some nice hop notes as well. Palate is medium to low carbonation with an aftertaste that is slightly sticky with rye overtone. Overall, Pretty darn good! Cheers!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark brown pour w/ a hint of mahogany and a small off white head w/ ok lacing and a pretty good amount of visible carbonation. The head dissipates pretty quickly. Rich sweet aroma of light toffee a hint of pepper and a light spice I canít quite place. A bit of a toasty character develops as it warms. Alcohol is clearly present with a bit of heat in the nostrils if you pull a few big whiffs in a row. Full well coated lightly creamy palate. Flavor is sweet, much more so than youíd expect form a Barley Wine maybe more of an ASA to style. The sweet malt characters and light spices carry through the finish is surprisingly clean for such a light hop flavor and high sugar content. Enjoyed this one quite a bit, even if I didnít really get Barley Wine out of it.
