On tap at the Crafted Keg. Served in a snifter.

Appearance - Deep red. Nice off white head. Very nice sticky lacing and a thick collar.

Smell - Pungent grapefruit hops and oak. Lots of oak. Bourbon blends in with the grain flavor. Vanilla. Caramel.

Taste - Much more vanilla and bourbon flavor. Really dominates. Hops don't really fight through until the back. Lots of caramel. Bitter grassy hop finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium heavy. Feels a lot more viscous than base Red's Rye. Bitter.

Overall - Totally different from Red's Rye. The barrel character is nice, though. Drinks like a small, hoppy barleywine.
