3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a murky orange-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, caramel, toffee, rye whisky, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with caramel, toffee, vanilla, coconut, rye whisky, and wood flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of bitterness and an alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp and sticky mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with fantastic rye whisky characteristics from the double barrel aging used on this one.
750ml bottle. 11/11/18 best by date. Appearance: Deep mahogany, fairly clear, with a moderate khaki head and no lacing.
Aroma: Sweet rye maltiness with vanilla, oak, and a touch of whiskey. Barrel character is strong.
Taste: Strong rye malt sweetness, caramel, molasses, vanilla, and whiskey with a low perceived bitterness
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, with a light carbonation that leaves a tingle on the tongue, and a high alcohol heat.
Finish: Whiskey spirit lingers after the swallow, with molasses and caramel
Overall: Fantastic beer that allows the spirit of the barrel carry all the way through. Complex aroma and flavor that hits a strong rye character, a strong vanilla note, and an unbelievable whiskey spirit note. Alcohol heat is crazy high, but understandable for a beer of this strength Bricktop86 (956) - Moore, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 27, 2018

Bottle. It poured a hazy amber color with a tan head. The aroma was of rye, malts, vanilla, wood and bourbon. The taste was similar to the aroma with more rye, malts, vanilla, oak, bourbon with medium carbonation and a rye aftertaste. Good stuff. ozzy70 (1362) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - SEP 4, 2017
Draft sample at GNBF. Poured brown with a tan head. Aroma was rye, whiskey, vanilla. Taste was light bitter, alcohol, rye, grain, whiskey. Not my thing. Ahuth (665) - Illinois, USA - AUG 30, 2017
Bottled. Personally thought it was a stout lol. With that being said I poured it and dark reddish. Kinda looks like u rain water through grain. The aroma is sweet. The palate is a bit light. And a lot of carbonation. Not a fan of it. However the taste is up there. Has a sweet malty taste; nutty and earthy tones. The on the spice of the rye hits up the earthy tones good. The whiskey burn is the last. Above average brew for me BeerandBlues2 (14422) - Escondido, California, USA - AUG 5, 2017

Bottle shared by alexsdad06 pour dark copper with large ecru head. Nose some whiskey, red fruit, bigger spice, floral, and an unfortunate a light hint of urine and ethanol. Taste sweeter fruit, floral, and spice like cinnamon and clove. Hint of ethanol, and some in the finish, but not bad for the ABV. Taste better than smell.
