Style: Rye Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 13.70%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
A heavy dose of rye breathes new life into this other-worldly strong ale. Supple spice and barley sweetness strike a balance in the young beer before its enlightenment in Heaven Hill Rye Whiskey barrels. Ethereal waves of dark fruit and vanilla ascend from the depths as the elixir warms while the rye character lends a stunningly silky mouthfeel. Perhaps it's a doorway to an existential awakening, or maybe it's just a damned fine beer.

Canned 11/27/18; drank 12/8/18 @ the Yarchives.

See-through purple/red appearance.

A violent pour yielded a HUGE khaki head; strong tree-rung lace.

Oak, cream, mild spicy rye & mild bourbon heat notes in the nose.

Thick, creamy mouthfeel.

Caramel, oak, bourbon & faintly spicy rye flavors.

This was a pleasant surprise; basically an above average barrel aged barleywine, regardless of how it's classified here. The rye added a hint of spice but wasn't overwhelming. I'd have another...

Had this beer on tap. The look was alight brown with a very small head that disappears quickly. The smell was a lot of butterscotch, caramel, and whiskey. The taste was a little bit sweet up front with the rye spice coming through at the finish. This has a heavy body and feels thick. A nice sipper on a cold winter day.

2017 can.
Pours a dark amber brown with a very light brown head. It smells boozy and rich with some caramel too. Mouthfeel is very smooth with a boozy end. Tastes include caramel and toffee that is some malty goodness. The rye beer and barrel shine. A very complex beer. One of my personal favorites that I doesn't think gets enough due.

Outstanding beer. Poured a dark amber color with heavy aromas of butterscotch and rye. Its very sweet without a note of bitterness. Like liquid desert with butterscotch, vanilla and whiskey. I can only describe it like drinking creme brûlée or as one friend described as butterscotch hard candy. Mouthfeel medium bodied with very little alcohol warmth. I find this beer very sweet and smooth for a rye beer. I recommend!

Had on tap. So smooth and silky on the feel. The rye, whiskey barrel aging and the barleywine like spices go perfectly together like a dream. The smell is so wonderful, like an air freshener for a mancave. Such richness and depth to all aspects, great rye beer with contrasting rich cream, chocolate, vanilla, dark fruit, and molasses with rye, charred wood, and whiskey
