Nose: rye spice, some clean smelling herbs, a hint of citrus, vanilla and bourbon and a hint of smoke. Pours deep chestnut with a slight haze under a 1” slowly dissipating tan cap. Very rich lace. On the palate it is big rich and creamy with vanilla, malt sweetness, big bourbon flavors and a pleasant alcohol warming on the finish. Despite the big alcohol, the beer is incredibly smooth finishing with a bitterness that suggests a dash of Peychaud’s Aromatic Cocktail bitters in a glass of bourbon and soda with some simple syrup on ice – except the beer boasts much finer softer carbonation, a chewier body, deeper complexity and a much better balance.

A: Pours an opaque mahogany with a white ring of head.

S: Dark fruits, red wine must, vanilla, coconut, caramel, toffee in the nose.

T: Vanilla up front, followed by a wave that oscillates between wine must and orange and rye, coconut and vanilla. A touch of alcohol. Delicious.

M: Full bodied and smooth, with a slight alcohol tingle. Perhaps a tiny bit flat.

O: Few flaws pull down this magnificent beer. Definitely recommended if you like barrel aged barleywines.
