12oz bottle, served in a snifter. Dark cola brown body, two finger offwhite head, good retention, splotchy lacing. Smell is figs, molasses, honey, earth, mineral, Belgian yeast esters, a bit of hot whiskey, light vanillin. Flavour follows, more of the whiskey heat on the finish, slight sweet and spicy burn. Esters, molasses, dark fruit, brown sugar, figs. It's pretty much a sweeter quad, though not as well integrated as I would like; especially given the heat on this. Sweet, slightly earthy finish that leaves a spicy burn. Mouthfeel is lighter medium bodied, a bit thin, appropriately carbonated for the style. An interesting American take on the quad; the figs and molasses add a lot of sweetness to it, that perhaps may have also added a bit of fusel heat. The rye barrel is nice here, however.

Ruby brown (24+) pour from bottle dated 2/19/17; fizzy, quick off-white/lite beige cap with good clarity underneath it; moderately heavy lacing; micro dot bubbles for a retained cap; solid ring; medium thick glossy legs sheet the glass. Aromas of molasses, brown sugar, raisins, figs, and a bit of booze. Sweet figgy jam-like granny used to make-on entry; sugared raisins, molasses, candy caramel malty base with a little rye barrel/alcohol; sweet figgy finish. Medium full jammy body; moderate minus carbonation; smooth satisfying velvety feel; slightly warming; some rye barrel dryness in the finish. Really great if not a tad too sweet; ABV present but not boozy; Dry rye Barrel notes offset by sugary fig flavors/linger; a sipper for sure.

22 ounce bottle into a goblet. Had 4/1/17.

Pours a fairly dark ruby/amber, hazy and somewhat opaque, with a short head and a good amount of foamy lacing. The smell is figs, malt, whiskey, rye, dates, plums, light smoke and oak, a hint of, um, bacon. The taste pretty much follows along- malt, figs, rye, whiskey, dates, plums, raisins, oak, some molasses, light alcohol. Smooth, somewhat creamy, a solid full body, well carbonated.

This is a big winner, one I’ll buy any time the opportunity arises. Great flavor and aroma, the flavors really pop. The barrels were prominent but not overly so. Terrific beer.

22 oz. bottle that says “rye whiskey” something something on the label. The word “rye” is like maximum12 fly paper. Splat. Into my palm. Batch 2016.

The pour looks nothing like a Russian River….oh. Crap. Well, it’s dark, brownish red. Smells like rum-soaked raisins, though I know it’s not rum. No beer smell. That’s OK.

Veneration is a _fill_in_the_blank rye whiskey aged beer. Hard to tell which kind of beer, because the rye has throttled it with extreme prejudice. The figs – which I hate – play off well with the strong hit of molasses & rye, leaving an overall impression of dark, sweet, & heavy. The only nod to beer – this is beer, right? – is sugar-smothered fruitiness in the finish that adds loads of sweetness to an already insulin-endorsed liquid. It’s a nice thing to sip. I like to sip.

One of the better beers I’ve had that wasn’t actually a beer. Very good.

This was exactly what I thought it should be. A very tasty beverage for sure. This one of the best beers that 3 Sheeps has put out. Would definitely get this one again !
