Picked up for $10 off the 'net. Had one in the closet, but couldn't pass up the deal. Very deep amber color. Smell is dark fruits, booze....flavor is the same...whiskey, dark fruits, candied sugar and even some citrus peel. Heavy bodied, but not quite chewy. This has aged very well, and next to the brandy variant, this is my favorite. Drink em if you gottem because I dont think it could get better than this.

Finally getting around to this one. Three-way split with Matt and Paul. Dark brown-ish mahogany body with a thin, beige collar. Huge malty, alcoholic aroma. Sweet and boozy with a bit of oxidation. Ok.

A: Poured into a snifter to a deep brown with some red highlights topped by a dense two finger light tan head that fades slowly to a collar around the edge of the glass with minimal lacing
S: Smells of caramel, toffee, fruitiness, hints of spice, oak and slight vanilla.
T: Taste is toffee, caramel, and some dark fruits along with some spice, and vanilla. There are some nice hints of oak in here too. Swallow is more dark fruits, caramel, and vanilla with some hints of baking spice.
M: This beer has a thick and sticky mouthfeel which is just fine. The level of carbonation is perfect for the ABV and style. Due to the ABV the beer also finishes on the dry side.
O: Holy cow is this beer good. Devilishly well integrated and easy to drink for the ABV. The flavors are top notch and blend together very well with everything in near perfect harmony.

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.
