It poured pitch black with no light shining through. Highly thick and viscous. Head was minimal. Just short and brown that disappeared quickly. Aromas were heavy with molwasses, coach, and rye bourbon. Some notes is licorice. The flavors followed suit with immediate chocolate and heavily roasted malt. There were presence of black licorice, dark fruits and soy sauce. At room temperature the rye bourbon became much more pronounced and heavy. Beer is very sweet with absolutely no warmth from the alcohol. Mouthfeel is full bodied and thick. Overall: a thick sweet yet savory beer, this definitely a winner.

Stark glossy black with a mocha tinged blanket that settles to a creamy ring.

Smell is luscious and oily cocoa roasted nuts with notes of waxy charred oak that come with a hint of rye, almost black peppery spice, cedary hops and molasses. A smooth, light coconut aroma emerges as it warms.

Flavors of mild black licorice and Tootsie Roll meet cedary, ashy and peppery charred oak as roasted nuts and younger whiskey accent. Rye Night Fury is complex and subtle, blanketing and warmly comforting, leaning towards chocolate and dark roasted malt without being sweet.

The thick, roundly smooth full body has a tingly, light but present carbonation and an almost numbing, semi-dry finish with a slight but measured alcohol heat. This reminds me of BA Expedition, but...dare I say it...better.

Fantastically delicious! Pours dark as night with dark fruit and creamy vanilla whisky aroma. Flavors are how it smells along with molasses, chocolate, and rye. Extremely smooth, wouldn't want it tasting any differently. The best of the furies imo.
