Cask Ale tasting. Spike did well with this one. I agree with Hank that it should be bottled. An overall great ale, with the vanilla just enough to tickle your fancy

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasted at Cask Ale Atlanta. My favorite of the 20 brews I tried. Aroma of oak, vanilla, & oatmeal cookies (maybe I was hungry). Taste was nice and smooth, not as hoppy as the regular Rye2. Vanilla and bourbon notes in the flavor. Very unique and enjoyable brew. The only one I tried more than once at the tasting. Hopefully they consider bottling this.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On cask at Atlanta Cask Ale Tasting. One of the more entertaining oak aging jobs at the fest. I remember the original being much more hoppy and the rye coming through a little more as well. Either the oak aging or the time has muted the hops from the original. Still really nice oak and vanilla aromas and flavors.
