4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Awesome-looking beer, dark brown/amber w/ a voluminous white head.. Profound aroma w/ rye whiskey prominent, pleasant malty backbone, dates, brown sugar.. same profile in the mouth, really delicious, complex, myriad of malty flavors married with sharp rye character, a little heat, liqueur-like.. great.
Whiskey aroma and underlying flavor, with woodsy, hint of citrus and even a touch of heat or mild pepper. Nice change of pace for this porter/stout fan. From a bottle in my cellar, a very nice surprise, well made. Blairgus (4613) - California, USA - FEB 9, 2017

A: Redish colour with a thick offwhite head that dissapates fast N: Raisins, whiskey, bourbon, vanilla, oak, plum, figs T: Raisins, figs, dates, sherry, caramel, whiskey, bourbon O: Complex nose and flavours. A bit boozy and a bit light mouthfeel though. Anyway it’s still nice. Gluepot (684) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 11, 2017
Quite a unique strong ale. A lively off white head on a semi-opaque deep mahogany body. The nose has medium plus prominence, featuring rye grain, rye whiskey and caramel malt. The taste emphasizes spicy rye grain along with the whiskey, oak, vanilla, a solid touch of citrus hops and a hint of mint. The caramel malt is there but less strong than most strong ales. Not too slick or sticky, especially considering the high ABV. DocJitsu (2025) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - DEC 12, 2016
Pours a cloudy, dark bourbon brown with a smooth, tan head. Whisky barrel come though in the nose first. Caramel, vanilla, whiskey. Mouthfeel isn’t as robust as expected. Immediately sharp and gets harsh and nearing offensive at the finish. Neither is the flavor. The rye malt Is overpowering. Some faint whiskey, caramel, and vanilla suddenly appears at and after the finish.

I didn’t care for this that much. The whiskey doesn’t really shine through much. It just kind of makes it more alcoholic. The flavor is not that good. brigg (704) - New York, USA - SEP 2, 2016
