pours reddish-brown, almost ruby. tan head. lots of lace.

definitely lots of chocolate in the nose and mouth here. oak follows in the nose, but i don't get it much in the taste. caramel and a bit of spice from the rye.

viscous and thick mouth. creamy.

mighty fine beer. this one sat for a year on the shelves and doesn't show any wear for it. kind of surprising this one made it that long, because i'd want this around all fall.

12oz bottle of the 2016 release. Served in a teku glass. Pours a dark cola brown body, fairly opaque, one finger offwhite head, good carbonation, not much in way of lacing. Smells of spicy rye, a bit of bread, milk chocolate, touch of cocoa, light smoke. Bit of oak also. Flavour follows essentially like a spicy chocolate milk, touch of oak and rye whiskey. Mouthfeel is medium lighter bodied, standard for Tyranena blended barrel aged beers, good chocolate and rye finish. I really enjoyed how drinkable and approachable this beer was, yet with a ton of barrel presence.
