The backyard rye is absolutely luscious. I would do things to get another bottle. Desperate desperate things.
i get the jelly and the jam flavors. some red wine. Less of the chocolate malt and vanilla signature bourbon county flavor.
Pitch black. Low carbonation. Silky smooth. Pops with flavor. Just off the hook. The nose pops as well of sweet jelly and red wine. The taste is rich with fruits and sweet goodness, but sessionable. Not too sweet that I couldn't drink several of these (if it weren't for the high ABV) in an evening. Mouthfeel is luscious.
Also note: I loathe ciders. I loathe sours. If you are afraid this might have too much cider or sour flavor because of the fruit, cast away those fears. You are safe.

A - Jet black, minimal mocha head that dissipates quickly.
S - Strawberry pop-tarts. Berry dominates the nose. You get hints of chocolate and bourbon.
T - Wow. Mixed berry cobbler with a chocolate, but not bitter finish. Deep rich berry flavor that isn't tart or artificial at all. The bourbon gives it another layer of sweetness that is different. Very delicious.
M - I would have liked it to be thicker but it was ok. Not thin by any means.
O - Best variant I've had and best fruit stout ive ever had. This beer drinks incredible right now.
