Poured from the bottle into a snifter, the color was black with streak of auburn streaking through the beer. A slight mocha head topped the beer leaving lacing in the glass as the beer disappeared from the glass. A whiff of rye is most noticeable, though vanilla and a certain woodiness follow. Initially, one taste a limited level of rye, raisins, burned malts, and a hint of caramel. The rye aging becomes a little more apparent in the aftertaste as the dark fruits fade. Only a mild taste of alcohol is detectable, with little warming sensation to be noticed. Mouthfeel is impressive in the Dirty Old Man. It is thick enough to linger in the mouth for several minutes, as the rye notes mellow. I let this bottle mellow for about a year and a half. I think the taste and smell were a little more potent then, but this is still an enjoyable beer. In my experience, this beer did not age as well as I would have anticipated. Even though my current sampling is not fresh, I still love this beer.

Bottle as an extra from Homer321. Big thanks! Pours pitch black with essentially no head at all. Dense as can be. Aroma of big roast, smoke, oak, rye whiskey, spicy grain, chocolate, anise. Very nice. The flavor is very chocolatey roast, spicy rye, whiskey and oak barrel notes, sweet lingering milk chocolate on the palate. Medium plus bodied with light pleasant carbonation. An interesting brew that was not on my radar but am very happy to have the chance to try. A nice way to cap off the night.

Pours black with a medium-sized blanket of light brown foam. Good head retention. Lots of fine bubbles cling together in clumps as I work my way through the glass. The aroma has a lot of chocolatey malt with a healthy dose of rye spice and some nice though mild barrel characteristics. I'm also getting some coffee, blackberries, dates and blueberries. The barrel-aging contributes a sweet, vanilla rye flavor. It's very toned down, which I generally like. Taste-wise, it's sweet and rich. Lots of fruit and chocolate. More rye spice. Light oak with that pleasant vanilla-forward spirit flavor. Mouthfeel is smooth and fairly thick. Another solid beer from Tyranena, though I still prefer Devil Made Me Do It by a bit.
