Medium sized creamy beige head that turns pretty quick into a lacing on top of a hazy orange amber colored beer.
Aromas of peach, alcohol, malts, rye, spices and a hint of smoke.
Flavours of alcohol, warmth, spices, peach, malts, a hint of malts and something light rye ish...
Aftertaste is bready with warmth and spices.
Low carbo, soft but spicy mouthfeel, medium body and a light oily texture.
Not bad, but expected a bit more of this beer. M82 (469) - Kansas, USA - FEB 17, 2013

Big 2.5 fingers of tightly patterned natural bone white head; nose is smooth whiskey, only a few seconds of heat left in this one, very nice, whiskey dominant aromas complimented by charred oak; taste is tobacco, soft chocolate, creamy vanilla, all supporting a smooth slightly sour, fruity whiskey barrel. A nice creamy medium palette, very nice carbonation for three year old barrel-aged beer. I’ve had this beer fresh, at 2, 4, and 6 months, and at 2 years prior to this bottle. I’ve always felt it was too hot, or was fading into something a bit too watery and bland, but I guess I needed to wait a little longer. This was a great bottle.
Sampled from bottle @ ZZT VI. Hazy dark orange color, smal ofd-white head. Smell and taste malts, lightly sweet, some alcohol, some liquor. Medium to full body, medium to full carbonation. falco242 (398) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 16, 2013
Out of bottle, nice darker golden color and some lace on the pour. Rye is balanced well with the sweetness of the oak. The smokestack series always seems to deliver. DutchDrebus (6322) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - FEB 16, 2013

Bottle courtesy of wdozier. Drank side by side with a glass of Templeton Rye. Very sweet and a bit sticky. Is there Rye? Yep. Does it stick out like a sour thumb and overpower everything? Not so much. This was quite enjoyable. Beerenberger (1605) - Fischer, Texas, USA - FEB 13, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2013 Aroma of sweet caramel, with hints of spices and vanilla. Pours a hazy copper with a long lasting khaki head and nice lacing. The taste is sweet. Some alcohol to begin with which gives way to pepper and spice in the finish. Oak, vanilla, grain, and dark dried fruit notes are also present. Medium body with moderate carbonatin. The abundent peppery finish gives it a crisp fizzy feeling. Overall, this to me, would be a very enjoyable after dinner sipper. Would drink again. ilovedarkbeer (2752) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - FEB 12, 2013
