Had this on 2012-12-18 i8n Columbia, PA
A - Dark brown with a short dark tan head with an aggressive pour. The headed faded completely away in 30 seconds. Mild lace.
S - Rye whiskey, medium-dark roast, molasses, semi-sweet chocolate, alcohol.
T - Tart apples, sour cherries, char, dark roasted grain, cacoa, vinous, tannin, bitter citrus. Alcohol is apparent but reasonably well-integrated. Initially finishes with a decent balance between the molasses sweetness and roasted/hop bitternes but ltowards the end of the glass, I enjoyed the long-lasting aftertaste less due to a lightly sour, earthy metallic tang (probably the rye flavor); I don't want to make too much of this though, since I did enjoy the taste of the beer. but it reduced my appreciation.
M - Medium body and light carbonation. Somewhat creamy, prickly, sticky. Coats the mouth nicely.
O - Interesting stuff. There are quite a few flavors going on with this brew. I liked the fact the bye bourbon barrel flavor wasn't dominant as is too often the case with this style. I'll look forward to having it again..

Pours a dark brown color with ruby edges. The thin layer of beige head quickly dissipates into oblivion. The nose has roasted notes but it is quite difficult to detect the rye whiskey. This offering is full bodied and the flavor profile has both roasted notes and the much anticipated rye whiskey essence. The whiskey presence is soft and merges nicely with the roasted bitterness on the finish.
This is well done and enjoyable, but it does not hold up to the very best barrel-aged stouts out there. Then again, I did not have to wait in line and deal with a one or two bottle limit to purchase this beer. So, there’s that…
