Murky layers of brown with a bubbly beige cap. Caramel candy with whiskey underpinned by smoky rye in the nose. Taste is so rich and full: caramel is lush and decadent without getting too sweet, warmed by expressive but not boozy whiskey, barley, brown sugar and roasted nuts support, with the smoky and rustic rye and oak backing it all in a way the simultaneously stars and complements. Feel is thinner for style, but plenty lush, smoky and wood tannnin shaped. The wife loved it

Pours a murky brown with a little caramel tint to it. Head is a finger of caramel-colored foam that lingers well. Aroma is raisins, toffee, fig and molasses before a big cymbal clash of dry rye that hits hard and fades quickly, the only thing lingering being toasty, nutty and caramely malts with a little char and dry heat. Good blend between sugary onset with dry heat. Flavor profile is nutty, caramely, molasses, chocolate, toffee, raisins and fig with dry rye adding a little heat and herbal spice. Rye is really well stated here, adding all that quintessential spice with a dry finish. Amazing. Malts are caramely and toasty malts. Mouth feel is thick with a rather still effervescence. Additional texture comes via lightly silty grain. Overall, great initial sweetness that breaks away for a dry rye finish. Amazing blend and temperament between the two.

Served in a 15.5oz Speigalau tulip from a 500mL bottle.

It's good, but not worth searching after. I've had much better Transient beers than this one. It's a pass for me, I wouldn't get it again by any means
