4.3/5  rDev +2.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Bottled May 31, 2010

A- pours a semi-clear beautiful dark brownish-red color as the name would apply like aged whiskey; a nice off white head with minimal lacing

S- a bit faint on the aroma; there is definitely a spicy element from the rye and a pine aroma from the hops; a nice dose of caramel and toasted flavors

T- the spicy rye kicks in at the end with caramel and toasted flavors making an appearance; it's 70 ibus I think but it's more spicy than bitter very interesting taste...spicy peanuts might be a good way to explain

M- great mouth feel with nice carbonation level; the lingering aftertaste is very reminiscent of whiskey

D- as it warms the flavors get more intense and spicier and for me one or two is enough because it becomes a little overwhelming...still a great beer but not exactly sessionable

3.79/5  rDev -9.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours a thick reddish mahogany with solid tan head. Hops, pepper notes from the rye, and sweet malts on the nose. Taste is bittering hops up front and on the sides mingling with the rye giving it that zing of white pepper and an even body. Malt sweetness on the back makes it nicely rounded with bittering hops coming through on the aftertaste. Many love this brew, I personally love rye brews, yet the hops are a bit strong to my liking. Hop heads dream.
