4.24/5 rDev -3.4%
A-Deep ruby, more carbonation than the oak, but still lacking a head.
S-Caramel, dark fruits, rye. Not much spiciness as I was expecting from the barrel.
T-At first it was caramel and dark fruit heavy, but then as it warmed the rye started coming through more and balancing the beer out.
M-Medium to heavy in body with nice carbonation.
O-A really good beer, but I was expecting more barrel character.

750mL bottle acquired through the Reserve Society. Bottled 04/16/13. Served in a Clown Shoes snifter.
Pours a deep muddy, opaque, ruddy brownwith a finger and a half dirty cream head. Thick retention. Nice lace.
Smells of sweet vanilla, raw sugar, whisky, molasses and familiar funky Bruery yeast. Nice.
Flavors of semi burnt caramel, lightly charred oak, vanilla, brown sugar, the signature slightly funky Belgianesque yeast, toffee, honey, mild spice, as strange as it may seem- bannanas Foster, all with rye whisky constantly drifting in and out. Pretty big booze kick. Tasty.
Oily heavy feel with nice mild carbonation. Boozy hot but with the vague alcohol cooling effect. Rye whisky, toffee and caramel linger in the finish.
Perhaps my favorite after the original. Nice and sweet with the spicy rye whisky helping to keep it from cloying.

4.63/5 rDev +5.5%
A: Pours a murky amber/brown with a thin film of creamy sand colored head, impressive in its consistency. Recedes to a ring. Very good retention in a thick ring of foam, with a few dots of lace.
S: Boozy vanilla escapes immediately, followed by rich caramel, spiced rye whiskey, marshmallow, toasted oak, cherry and red grape, some char, and mild oxidation which rounds out the aroma.
T: A lot more dried fruit coming through (cherry, plum), solid backbone of toffee/caramel, a little whiskey, with moderate oakyness on the finish. Very nice complexity. Moderate sweetness, but the complexity keeps it from being one dimensional or cloying.
M: Slight alcohol burn, but it's mild as far as Bruery beers go. Round, full body. Light carbonation provides the right amount of structure.
O: Delicious, complex, and well balanced. A superb dessert beer, best enjoyed in small pours.
