DESTIHL Brewery Dosvidanya Rye
What the brewers say
"Our Dosvidanya Rye has deep, rich, dark-chocolate maltiness and earthy, spicy rye flavors."
What our panel thought
"Rich nose of vanilla, treacle, roast nuts, chocolate-covered cherries, oak, raisin liqueur. Sweet, warm, fruity flavor—caramel, roast, wispy cotton-candy, dark chocolate, burnt sugar, espresso. Big, lush mouthfeel. Warm, prickly finish, lingering pome fruit."
What our editors thought
"Nose is hulking but tenuous—a Richard Serra sculpture that could crash down any minute. The sip brings charred-oak bourbon bracing bitter dark chocolate, smoothed by vanilla-caramel patina. Singular, uncompromising."
