look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a beige head. Color is a copper brown. Some lace left.

Flavor profile: a lot of caramel malts up front. The rye shows a lot and there is a nice amount of spice. Floral and grassy hops. A lot of vanilla and oak comes through in the finish. Bourbon throughout the beer.

Mouthfeel: bitter, but warming. Medium bodied. Good amount of carbonation. Ends with some candy like malt sweetness.

Overall, I like how this beer tastes like reds rye and has the barrel flavors. The hops are still present which is great. It isn't overly malty like a lot of BA pale ales are.
