Courtesy of Quake1028. Pours dark brown with thin light brown head. The mild aroma brings forth a nice oaky barrel agedness along with roasted malts, faint burnt malts, sweeter notes that seem vaguely malty and a background of rye bread. The taste has an initial rush of roasted malts with a hint of burnt malts. Then the tasty wood oak notes enter and are accompanied by a streak of sweet caramel candy. The burnt malts and mild dryness enter toward the finish creating a very nice balance.

12oz bonus from Kmweaver, though also got 2 bottles today from motortoddhead. Made it an easy decision to open this one. Shared with my GF Cyn, friends Chris and Geoffrey. Pours black with a tan ring. Nose is sweet, roasty, nutty, chocolately and so many other notes. Taste is sweet, malty, whiskeyesque and really a nice rye character. Tyrananena has yet to dissapoint for me. and this is damn yummy. Great beer, without a doubt, a seriuos brew.

From Skyview. Very dark brown and lightly carbonated. Whiskey dominates the flavor and aroma. There is some malt sweetness. I recognize the quality but the whiskey is not for me.

I’ve never heard of a rye porter. The Breweres Gone Wild series really is ballsy. Touch burnt woody barrel aging is quite apprent but not over done. Rye is a clear note. Lots of vanilla. Creamy. oily. The coffee and chocolate notes do not go over board. Unique.

Bottle from tytoanderso. Thanks bro!
Couldn’t wait to try this one so it went from my doorstep to the freezer to our tasting table. Cola brown body, could stand to be a bit darker I would imagine, but still looks fine. Two finger thick brown head that is semi lasting and leaves a good amount of drip lacing. The rye influence is immediately apparent on the nose, along with dank liquor barrels, coffee beans, chocolate and dark roasted malts. More rye in the flavor, lends a nice spicy note throughout the experience that makes this one pretty unique and a lot of fun. Chocolate and licorice are also apparent, along with a musty quality from the barrels. A little thin at first, but evens out and this isn’t supposed to be too overwhelmingly thick or meaty I don’t think, given the style. Finish brings one last kick of rye, barrel influence and coffee beans that carry on for quite a while. I want more of this.

Intricate design of a barely translucent and chocolaty black array. A darkened cocoa smudge resides on top. Aroma is divine elaboration. Chocolate oats and sweetly charred rye flakes. Milk chocolate covered mocha beans settled with an embalming Godiva liquor. Cocoa nibs on cocoa powdered biscotti, lightly dipped in a caramelized whiskey sauce. Good things are on their way. Flavor buds blissfully with vibrant rye and just the right hint of acidity. The cocoa complexity comes through with a dry talc and soot like feel combining at once with the delicatessen milk chocolate squares. Flaked rye intermingles with bourbon and a whiskey and rye accented crème brulee. You can feel the palate break like the caramelized crust layer on top. Like dessert, like mouthfeel. It’s a joyous, full bodied occasion.

Bottle courtesy of my mother in law. Mild sweet roast, oatmeal, and chocolate. Black body with tan head. Flavor is a good dose of chocolate and vanilla creamy texture to body. Some dry coco chalk on palate but creamy vanilla aftertaste balances that out.

Pours a deep, burnt brown. Aroma is roast dominant, with dark fruits, dates, ginger, cardomom, toffee. The barrel component is well integrated and works well. The flavor is very roasted, with the coffee notes really leading the charge.
