Bottled 4/16/13; drank 4/1/16 @ Harvest Hop Haus.

Opaque brown/orange appearance.

Minimal khaki head; no lace.

Brown sugar & orange peel notes in the nose.

Medium thick mouthfeel.

Brown sugar, orange peel & caramel flavors up front; chocolate notes emerged as this warmed. Almost no booze heat. Unique & delicious; pretty much as good as it gets.

Drank with 3.5 years of age on bottle. Awesome variant. Has a good amount of sweetness. Rye barrel flavor present though not overbearing. A sipper of a beer. Would go great with a cigar!

L: very dark with a nice head that boils down to nothing.

S: malt, booze, whiskey. Good smelling beer.

T: Sharp bite of rye with a beer back. Good combination here. The alcohol is definitely present but no harsh .

F: feels like a 15% beer .

O: very nice beer. I got a large shipment of bruery beers over Christmas. Sucre 3 barrel aged as well as bois 3 barrel aged variety. This is the best so far.

Very much enjoyed this beer, more than I thought I would being that I enjoy bourbon more than whiskey. Very smooth, sweet and easy to drink even with the high ABV. Pleasant surprise.
