750 ml bottle into snifter, bottled on 2/18/2014. Pours crystal clear reddish copper color with a 2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big caramel, toast, molasses, brown sugar, brown bread, rye, cedar, vanilla, toffee, herbal, grass, light pepper, and toast/cedar earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/rye malt, earthy hops, and cedar wood notes; with good strength. Taste of big caramel, toast, molasses, brown sugar, brown bread, rye, cedar, vanilla, toffee, herbal, grass, light pepper, and toast/cedar earthiness. Slight earthy spice on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, molasses, brown sugar, brown bread, rye, cedar, vanilla, toffee, herbal, grass, light pepper, and toast/cedar earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity and balance of dark/rye malt, earthy hops, and cedar wood flavors; with great robustness and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very smooth and fairly slick/creamy mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a great wood aged rye beer. All around great complexity and balance of dark/rye malt, cedar wood, and earthy hop flavors; and extremely smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
