Bottle shared by Sean at the 2010 Summer Solstice. Poured a cloudy amber brown with an off-white head that dissipated quickly to the edge. Aroma had notes of sweet bread, caramel and rye. Flavor was similar with the rye being more of an undertone and caramel being to more present note.

floral, vanilla, woody smell. really nice deep brown color. tastes like rose water though. for me, that’s a turn off. roses and saffron.

Reynolds314 (2303) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 11, 2011
Malty rye red ale base beer. The beer is a bit overshadowed by the barelling. The main taste is bourbon, vanilla, caramel and its quite nice. Its not overpowering but the base beer is a bit underwhelming. Loved the barrels they used for this but cant say i loved the beer.

Bottle at a tasting. Reddish brown pour with some light tan head. Aroma full of spice, bourbon, some sweet caramel and of course rye, alcoholic tones apparent. Flavor has some sweeter tones, vanilla and caramel, bourbon, spice and rye tones.

sailracer (399) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 6, 2012
Bottle sample at Julios (Both 2010 and 2011 version). Pours a deep brown color with minimal head. The flavor is malty sweet with a syrupy, sticky mouth feel. The 2011 tasted younger, like the flavors hadn’t mellowed yet. The 2010 was a bit mellower and a little less sticky. OK overall.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2010 Rerate! Purchased $8.99 from Julio’s 10/29/10--they had many cases left. Clear medium dark brown with a one finger medium beige head, fair retention. Bourbon caramel nose with some light cherry tang following as well as a little tobacco. Flavor is much the same with some spicy rye added. It’s very much barrel forward, light to moderate sweetness, less tobacco. Finishes semi-dry with low bitterness peaking at a 3, light alcohol presence. Moderate carbonation with a full body. Not too bad. New rating 7-4-7-4-13--3.5. Old rating follows. 22oz, bottle, thanks to Terry for sharing. Clear ruby brown with a couple finger beige head good retention. Lots o bourbon up front with plenty of spicy rye bourbony notes, some sweet caramel. . Flavor has tons of barrel influence, maybe a bit overdone, a little vanilla-y. Bitterness peaked at a 4, dry finish. Not bad, but too much barrel. 8-4-7-3-13--3.5
