Interesting beer. Rye spice with bourbon. Highly carbonated. Very nice. Bottle, July 2015.

Wow! Wasn't expecting it to be that good. Pours a murky dark amber with a massive frothy tan head that will not go away. Thousands of tiny bubbles dance to the top of the glass. Smells of a clean rye grass. First taste is a huge rye bite followed by a bit of oak, but all of it is enveloped in a wonderful sweet vanilla and a gentle warm alcohol burn. Three warnings; 1) the gentlest pour will release a massive head, 2) expensive-13.99 for 25.4 oz, 3) it will fuck you up. Delicious! Awesome beer!

Only 8.6 ABV. Good taste. Not too overpowering with whiskey taste.

18JUN14, Against the Grain, Louisville, KY Draft, mini-pint, cask version Pours a clear dark amber with a 2-finger off-white head. Aroma is mild and had a hint of molasses-vanilla-boozy bourbon quality to it. It's faint, but there. The flavor is super smooth, and continues that same character. It's a medium mouthfeel, that starts smooth and malty, then a kick of bourbon, fading away with some bourbon dancing over the malt flavor's corpse. It's not the full aromatic wonderful was of bourbon. It's a hint of the harsh booziness that's typically covered up by the rye and molasses and vanilla. It's not terrible though. The malt puts up a good fight, and isn't defeated until the judge's decision. Definitely doesn't taste like a heavy-hitter (>7.5%). I'd probably drink again, but maybe just one, as if want to move onto newer and greener pastures. If I spend more time with this beer, I could be easily convinced to love the subtleties behind the flavor.
