This one's been hanging around for a while. Let's see how it stands up.

This brew is crowned with a quickly receding (like my hairline) off-white froth. Color is dark brown with amber hues interspersed. Smells of cherry, brown sugar, treacle, and grain. Sweet with burnt sugar, maraschino cherry, and graham cracker on the tongue. Some other notes of syrup, caramel and faint wood present themselves randomly. Medium to heavy with a good dose of fusel alcohol in the finish.

A little slow out of the blocks but finishes fairly well. Just a bit more training that this one would be winning some races.

Khaki head. Caramel copper color.

Great rye whiskey and barrel flavor. Vanilla and oak. Spice. Caramel and toffee. Malty. Wheat is a nice addition. Everything blends together well here. Very enjoyable.

Rye wine aged in Bourbon Barrels. Caramel, toffee, vanilla, brown sugar, figs, creme brulee and oak. All malt. Medium bodied. Smooth. Nice hit of boozy heat. Really good.
