2013 Bois split 4 ways in a snifter. Pour is a fig colored murky red pour, light head. Nose has an explosion of rye spice and a lot of fig, grape skins and super caramelized oaky sweetness. The nose is really great....but you know what, the taste is EVEN BETTER! So caramelized, so sweet yet refined, lots of spicy caramel and honey and burnt brown sugar. like seriously this is awesome. my favorite after french oak and bourbon and brandy so 4th place for bois? not bad!

Pours almost clear amber with a ring white head. Aroma is sweet and a bit boozy with bourbon, malts, whisky and quite some alcohol. Taste is quite sweet with some malts, alcohol, whisky and a medium bitterness. Medium body and carbo. Nice, but not really my type of beer.

1 June 2014, tap at the Bruery. Labeled rye barrel aged Bois. Brown. Nose is sweet, sugary alcohol, soft fruit, some nuts and fruitcake but not as bold as the standard Bois. Med/full body and mildly fizzy. Sugary, rich raisins, mild alcohol, no nutty bite. Really good.

May 25, 2014 - bottle from the source (Bois Rye). Brown pour with some head. Aroma was nice balance of alcohol, wood, spice caramel and malt. Taste was consistent with aroma and had a sweet and spicy finish. As it warmed, got some dark fruit in the taste. Medium to full body and smooth.
