DESTIHL Brewery Dosvidanya Vanilla Rye
What the brewers say
"We took our Dosvidanya Rye and added vanilla to bring out the sweetness."
What our panel thought
"Roast aroma—chocolate, coffee—with vanilla sweetness, rye spice, caramel, raisin, and oaken spirit. Strong espresso and dark-chocolate flavors; spicy rye adeptly complements sweet marshmallow and caramel-like vanilla. Full body."
What our editors thought
"Nose of dark chocolate, spice, whiskey, vanilla. The sip goes deep, dark—layers of malt, licorice, tobacco, charred oak, softened by a modicum of sweet vanilla. Has the heft to accompany a cigar or cask-strength bourbon."
