2015 bottle thanks to Douglas. Huge rye whisky nose, smoke, honey. Almost black. Low head but almost flat. A bit boozy for sure, with woody rye, cherry, honey, and a nice tartness as well. Huge barrel. Awesome fun stuff.

Bottle at tasting. Dark brown color. Delicious, divine aroma of vanilla, raisin, ripe fruit and whiskey. Rich taste of ripe fruit, mild subtle smoke, chocolate, rich smooth vanilla, boozy raisin, red fruit and an infitine finish. This is worldclass. Wow, what a beer.

Dark brown, almost black, with no hint of carbonation. Smells like sour cherries, cocoa, coffee, ripe grapes, sherry, bourbon and alcohol. Bitter-sweet taste, with notes of cocoa, cherries, vanilla, oak, bourbon, sherry and feint coffee. The alcohol is present, but very well incorporated with the flavor. Very smooth mouthfeel and a nice bitter sweet aftertaste.

Bottle share from Toby. Well deserving of its scores, all around top marks for its smoothness, welcoming aroma and enveloping taste. This is one to seek out and savor. Wish it came in bigger bottles...

2015 Variant, 375ML bottle shared with friends

A - Dark burnt orange and brown. No head but there is a whisp of carbonation from the cap.

S - The aroma is pretty awesome. Had side by side with bourbon. Rye has an extra spiciness to this with walnut, cocoa and raisins.

T - Not as good as the bourbon variant. Has a more grain alcohol taste and maybe needs a lot more time. Dense and thick, sweet and spicy with the classic adam smoke and raisins

M - Thick mouthfeel, coats the tongue. lots of sugary finish but no carbonation

O - Decent beer, can’t wait to see how this one ages.
