poured into a snifter
This beer is extremely dark brown, to the point of black. A nice brown bubbly head that doesn't linger very long. A very nice looking dark brew.
nose is rye and oak. Subtle hints of vanilla and bourbon in there. The smells aren't very strong in this. it takes a few sniffs to really get everything but still a very good smelling beer.
same as nose but a little stronger. You get everything from the oaky flavors, the rye, the vanilla and some subtle bourbon. A little bitterness at the very end which is a nice touch. This isn't like a typical barrel aged beer where the bourbon is extremely prevalent. it's in there, but very subtle IMO. The perfect starter beer for getting into barrel aged beers.
medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Leaves a bit of a dry finish in the mouth.
very good. The first beer I grab on my weekly visit to the tasting room. Unfortunately it's going to run out here very soon, but I could easily have 2 or 3 of these in a visit. Alcohol isn't too high so 2 or 3 is definitely possible without getting too buzzed. Great tasting and only a few minutes from me!

Had on tap....
A- Pours a dark brown almost black in color. No head when given to me. This coats the glass with a brownish liquid the entire beer.
S- Light bourbon notes to this go hand in hand with a rye aroma. Some light darker fruits in this as well accents the woody aroma. This has a light sweet malt to this that I found a little off but still balanced the beer out.
T- The rye pops through the beer from start to finish. There is a woody overtone with a hint of bourbon at the middle to the lasting of the beer. Sweet malts pop up here and there but make the beer well balanced ironicly.
M- Medium heavy mouthfeel. Carbonation was lacking but went well with the beer. Rye left on the palate with a hint of bourbon on the aftertaste. Clean tasting overall. Alcohol drying on the palate.
D- I had more than one sample of this. Actually, I would say this was about a pint's worth. This beer really stood out from the other offerings. A good brewery that I am looking forward to having more from.
