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

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.

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.
