This beauty is courtesy of fishingnet. Ok, the regular Hi Fi Rye is simply an amazing beer. Not sure how it could be any better in fact. Hmm. This BA version pours amber with copper hues and near white head. The aroma is red apples wedges covered with caramel, prunes, pine hops, spicy rye, some whiskey booze and vanilla. The taste offers up a mix of sweet vanilla, some spicy rye goodness, sweet malts, pine hops and some dark fruity esters. Thankfully the barrel notes don’t get in the way or take away any of this beer’s great flavor. Into the finish a modest level of sweet whiskey joins in.

S - Caramel, brown sugar and oak dominate a malty nose

T - Caramel, brown sugar, and dates are up front. There is a slight hop bitterness still remaining despite the beer's age. There is also some slight dark chocolate and oak spice near the end

M. - Sweet and thick beer that has some spice from the oak near the finish

O - Flossmoor makes great BA barley wines and this one continues that tradition.
