On draft at Yogis in Bloomington. Pours dark amber with a thin head. The aroma and taste are heavy with rye. The malts blend well and cause a slightly sweet taste when blended with the rye. A solid top knotch rye ale.

Bottle paired with Templeton Rye whiskey. Strong grain mash nose initially with rye bread, dried apricot, and a little whiskey booze, apple pie spice and wood that becomes more apparent when drinking next to actual Templeton Rye whiskey. There’s a lot of rye flavors (bitter and dry) but with the whiskey the subtleties really come out and make it much better. olr1984 (1500) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 5, 2014

Bottle. Poured a dark brownish color with a two finger brown head. Aroma was whiskey, bread, and nuts. Flavor was a lot of whiskey and not a lot else. If you like whiskey you will love this beer. Very thick and oily in the finish a very complex and heavy beer . Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - APR 19, 2010
Thanks to my brother for splitting this bottle with me. Bottle No. 7,873 of 12,148. The beer pours a murky brown color with a tan head. The aroma is strong rye with some oaked notes and dark fruit. The flavor is very nice with rye, cherries, vanilla, oak and a strong, spicy hops and rye finish. The alcohol is fairly noticeable. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. phaleslu (10100) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 8, 2010
750 ml bottle via trade with Pawola22- thanks again, Brian! 2010, batch 1, bottle 2991/12148. This cork was probably the hardest time I’ve ever had removing one from a beer. Sore hands aside, this one pours a cloudy plum-amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of banana, vanilla, whiskey notes that seem to have both bourbon and scotch qualities, rye, caramel malts, and grains. Flavor of rye and other spices, vanilla, rye, bourbon, floral hops, and caramel malts. Lingering vanilla and rye. Spicy and sweet. Medium-bodied, with decent carbonation and a spicy mouthfeel. Very interesting beer. tmgiddings (41) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAY 14, 2010
Bottle from Crown Liquors #6 - Pours a hazy dark brown with a finger-thick, tan head and some sediment. Aroma is caramel, rye whiskey (a little abrasive) and roasted rye malt. Taste is nice rye whiskey but not much else. Mouthfeel is oily, creamy, wet, and soft. Shag (2987) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUN 1, 2010
This poured a copper color with a white head. The aroma is a bitch smack of bourbon with some rye and caramel showing up. The flavor is very boozy and sweet with more burbon, rye, toffee, and caramel. Overall a pretty good beer but not one to go tailgating with!
