4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
22 oz bottle, Pour dark brown with some red highlights and a nice off white head. Moderate lacing in my De Dolle tulip. Aroma is amazing. Some herbs,bourbon, fresh rye bread, caramel and a hint of vanilla. Full bodied for a rye ale with just the right amount of carbonation. Smooth and very well balanced. Amazing beer. Going to get more.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2011 Dark walnut, mahogany pour. Aroma is straight up vanilla, caramel, bourbon cracker. Flavor is heavily influenced by bourbon, some vanilla, grain, some rye grain, sharp, but smoothed out by the bourbon. Incredibley good. DAMN this shit is good

Straight garnet brown pour with a lively off white head, The aroma is loaded with...yes.massive dill notes. Smutty is lucky that dill is my favorite herb. Other notes include epic bourbon vanilla and caramel. The flavor is loaded with caramel, bourbon vanilla,booze, and EPIC dill notes. Mmmm. The palate is silky, smooth, thick, and finshes boozy. Wow.

Sample at Julio’s Spring Beer Fest (disclaimer - memory somewhat blurred after perhaps a few too many samples) One of the better bourbon barrel ales I have tasted.
