Pours the same as the other variants. Murky mahogany color with a large off-white head that goes down rather quickly. Scent is slightly "spicier" than the other variants. The whiskey seems to come through the most out of this version of Boise in my opinion. Sweet, dark fruits and burnt sugar. Tons of vanilla and oak. Peanut brittle and toffee, with some very smooth whiskey aromas. This one is a whiskey bomb, but not in a boozy way. Taste is sweet whiskey up front...it easily shows the rye characteristics moments after it touches your tongue. Spicy rye and bread-like flavors, immediately followed by a malt bomb and tons of dark fruits. Cherries, plums, dates, raisins, and dark chocolate. Very complex. For me, this is the most complex of all the Boise variants. Finishes with more barrel, vanilla, and the perfect amount of whiskey booziness. Mouthfeel is full-bodied and a little bit sticky. Drinkability is high, considering how tasty this beer is. Overall, this is my favorite Boise. I have now tried all of them (still need to rate Brandy from my notes). This one is a top shelf Old Ale with barrel aging at its finest. Will be buying more of this version of Boise for sure.
