12oz to tulip. Pours black, with a thin coffee colored head. Aroma is dry, oak barrels, chocolate, and roasted grains. Taste is chocolate, whiskey, oak barrels, and rye spiciness. Thanks Tom!

Thank you Matt for bringing this to me. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a dark brown color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within a minute. There was some light torturing stringy lacing roaming around the glass. The smell had a boozy sort of tight knit chocolate and a slightly bready sort of crustiness. The taste was mainly the chocolate first with a strong sweet roastiness invading my taste buds. On the palate, this one sat right about a medium on the body with a pretty good thick chewy roastiness invading my tongue and mouth. Overall, so glad to have finally tried a Tyranena beer, its about time (hot damn). Would I have this again? Oh yeah, sure would.

Pours nice black with tan head. Whiskey, wood, coffee, and some roasted malt notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a nice whiskey note.

Bottle as an extra from Homer321. Big thanks! Pours pitch black with essentially no head at all. Dense as can be. Aroma of big roast, smoke, oak, rye whiskey, spicy grain, chocolate, anise. Very nice. The flavor is very chocolatey roast, spicy rye, whiskey and oak barrel notes, sweet lingering milk chocolate on the palate. Medium plus bodied with light pleasant carbonation. An interesting brew that was not on my radar but am very happy to have the chance to try. A nice way to cap off the night.

Bottle to snifter. Pours almost flat with a head that slowly and slowly grows to be very large, tightly compressed with fine bubbles. Aroma is boozy with some chocolate and bead crust. First sip is all foam from the head. Taste is a huge chocolate bomb, ranging from dark bitter chocolate to milk chocolate. Thick, chewy, and viscous with some subtle barrel character. A little bit of late palate warming and it gets to your chest, but all smooth and not hot. Pretty tasty.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. The aroma is cocoa, soft Ashton note, roasted malts. The flavor is slightly sour/acidic, coffee, roasted malts, soft vanilla, woody. Not bad a bit malty.

Pours black with a medium-sized blanket of light brown foam. Good head retention. Lots of fine bubbles cling together in clumps as I work my way through the glass. The aroma has a lot of chocolatey malt with a healthy dose of rye spice and some nice though mild barrel characteristics. Iím also getting some coffee, blackberries, dates and blueberries. The barrel-aging contributes a sweet, vanilla rye flavor. Itís very toned down, which I generally like. Taste-wise, itís sweet and rich. Lots of fruit and chocolate. More rye spice. Light oak with that pleasant vanilla-forward spirit flavor. Mouthfeel is smooth and fairly thick. Another solid beer from Tyranena, though I still prefer Devil Made Me Do It by a bit.

Very dark brown, almost black, and almost nonexistent beige lacing. Somewhat subdued aroma of rye, earthy malts, cherries, wood, and hints of chocolate. Thin sweetness with a little metallic undertone. Spicy carbonation, medium-bodied, and an abrupt finish.

jgb9348 (5463) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - NOV 21, 2013
Deep dark brown coloured body with a fast-dying tan head. Aroma of oak, vanilla, roasted malt, pit fruits, alcohol, cherries, milk, peat and tons of cognac and brandy - very strong nose and nice! Medium-bodied; Slightly watery feel at first with a good deal of flavours ranging from cherries to oak and back to earthy matls. Aftertaste is a bit underwhelming showing vanilla, anise, pepper, cherries and scotch. Overall, a nice and complex smelling beer, but the flavours never reach a maximum with some nice tastes, but fairly thin and not well developed. Great to try, but there are better beers out there in this style! I sampled this stubby twelve ounce bottle purchased from Discount Liqour in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on 05-September-2012 for US$2.49 sampled at home in Washington on 21-November-2013, aging the beer for a bit over 13 months.

Dark pour with a brown head. Aroma is rye, roasted malt, sweetness. Taste is rye, roasted malt, rye whiskey in the aftertaste. It leaves a nice roasted malt aftertaste. So-so lacing. One mighty fine tasty beer.
