Bottle, pours a clear, dark red body with reddish light brown head. Aroma & taste of prune/dark fruit, rye, whiskey barrel, vanilla, and oak. Tastes much sweeter than the aroma might suggest. Smooth, medium-bodied. Light tartness on the finish with a lingering alcohol burn. It’s easily apparent that this is barrel aged, as the whiskey and oak flavors tend to dominate, especially as this warms. This would be interesting to try again after a few years of cellaring.
Pours hazy caramel with a thin buff head. Aroma offers toasted malt and caramel tones. Flavor presents toasted malt and caramel character. Mouthfeel features good body and OK fizz. Don’t whyne, have some wyne. JaBier (7841) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - AUG 5, 2015
Bottle shared by a friend. Clear copper pour with a medium tan head. Aroma of malt, caramel sweetness and dark fruit. Malt and bourbon flavor with some dark fruit before a slightly hoppy finish. libertine (433) - rochester hills, Michigan, USA - MAR 2, 2015
Pours a very cloudy burgundy with a small brown head that quickly dissipates. light lacing.. Aroma of figs, raisins, cherries, oak and whiskey. Flavor starts off sweet then gets a little tart before hitting you with some whiskey.Full bodied,low/ flat carbonation, oily/slick mouth feel. This beer brings the alcohol. Not well hidden and thankfully so. Damn good stuff.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy red-orange. Sweet scents of malt, caramel, and alcohol. Taste follows aroma with hints of whiskey and oak. Creamy texture and nice alcohol warmth. Sammy (12096) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 27, 2014

Hazy red pour from a 2011 bottle. Malty sweet nose, again in the taste - subtle whiskey with some nice heat and sweetness. Mittenator (1612) - Michigan, USA - JUL 1, 2014
Bomber thanks to respertftw. Garnet with a tan head. Spice, wine and tannins. Toffee, wine, rye and vanilla. hopscotch (11048) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Bottle... This beer rocks!… Pours hazy with a burnt-caramel hue and a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head. Fantastic retention. The nose furnishes a generous measure of gooey caramel mingled with earthy, oak and rye whiskey notes. Full-bodied with a velvety mouthfeel and pillow-soft carbonation. The flavor is a delicious blend of rich, buttery caramel and rye whiskey. The finish is boozy and quite warm, but smooth; very smooth. Muchos kudos to Bvery for shipping this world class beer from the great white north! Iphonephan (6950) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - APR 24, 2014
From a 75 cl bottle shared at home. Pours a murky brown with an ecru head. Flavors of caramel, oak, vanilla and butterscotch. Boozy finish. Really tasty. daknole (11044) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Brown pour, tan head. Nice spicy rye whiskey notes, brown sugar, toffee, very light on the hop bitterness. Sweet and rich. Good stuff.
