750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Dark ruby body. Flecks of amber in the light. Pours with a small khaki head. Maintains a collar forever.

Smell - Whiskey and dark fruits. Brown sugar. Booze all over. Less intense whiskey than the bourbon version.

Taste - Dark fruits and whiskey. Tons of booze. Brown sugar, but not as rich as the bourbon version.

Mouthfeel - Medium low carbonation. Boozy as hell. Heavy. Quite the sipper.

Overall - Boozy as all getout. As usual. It's still good.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Slightly cloudy dark-brown with a modest sized light-beige head that dissipated fairly quickly.

Smell: Moderate whiskey notes, brown sugar, dark fruit notes (think raisins and prunes) and mild toffee notes. Nice aromas but my initial impression is it's slightly muted in comparison to previous versions of the Anniversary beers.

Taste: Whiskey, some fruity sherry notes, raisins, some brown sugar, mild spicy rye notes and mild oak notes. The beer finishes drier and less sweet than the bourbon bal-aged versions of the Anniversary beers. The aging in the rye Whiskey barrel is a nice touch. Very mild alcohol presence, great for the ABV.

Mouth-feel: Medium-bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation.

Overall: The rye whiskey aging results in a nice anniversary beer variation compared to the Bourbon bal-aged versions, resulting in a drier and cleaner finishing beer. The Anniversary beers are always top notch and this one continues the tradition.
