COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rye Barleywine Style Ale. The unicorn may have finally found its match in Death Incarnate. But hold your horned horses, because the unicorn lives to rye another day! What a sickle joke! But, we aren’t tricking you, this barley wine is a real treat, with a rich malt skeleton and a more than paranormal amount of hops. If you’re going to harvest soul-y one beer this season, don’t fear the reaper...

Tortman18 (175) - Batavia, Illinois, USA - NOV 4, 2013
Pours a very dark ruby/copper with a decent size, surprising mocha head. Very little lacing. Nose has a very unique combination of sweet citrus and coffee. Some caramel mixed with chocolate, roasted malts, tangerine, pineapple, mango and raisin. Mouth is very bitter and pungent. A mix of pine and citrus. It is balanced out by the sweetness of the rye and dry caramel. A lot of dried cherry, raisin and fig. Very good. It left a slight alcohol burn, but it wasn’t overpowering.

Poured from 22oz bomber I've had for awhile. Dark almost brown color with a tiny layer of off white head. Plum and fruit aroma. Taste is cherry plum pine and a very sweet after taste. Somewhat bitter. Not bad for this style.
