Smooth barrel-aged rye beer. Good. A little too happy for my taste, but I can see why the ratings are high on this. Caraway blends in with hops well. Glad to try.

Not bad overall, but some weird off-flavors in there telling me the bottle I sampled did not hold up very well.

Batch 1

I've never popped a beer with a little rust showing on the cap. I'm scared.

Pours a very dark reddish brown with just a little head. Almost totally opaque.

Nose is sweet. Caramel. Brown Sugar. Malt. Not really getting any bourbon.

Taste follows the nose however there is a bitter astringency on the finish. This one is definitely a bit oxidized. It's not horrible, but I don't think I'll be finishing the bottle.

Wish I could have had this fresh.
