UPDATED: OCT 17, 2008 Drank on tap at the Alchemist, backlogged from August 2007, I think.
Amber in color with a small white head. Spicy rye and some floral hops in the aroma. Taste has a good amount of pumpernickel rye character as well as alot of citrus hops. Dry bitter finish. Medium body, nice stuff.

Draft - Pours a dark amber in color with a thickish white head. Aroma is of strong citrusy hops with a complex mix of fruit and faint yeasty rye breadiness. Unusual, but pleasant. Flavor is quite hoppy (yum!). A very enjoyable beer.

Sample at the brewpub. Darkish amber, vestiges of a creamy head linger. Strong hoppy, pumpernickel-rye nose. Cherry, apricot, more rype and oh yes plenty of hops in the middle, and a nice whiff of vanilla and whiskey to finish. Delightful.
