3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle received in trade. Thank you StefanSD! Pours dark reddish brown with a rather small goldenish beige head that leaves some spotty trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is malty with rye bread, caramel, toffee, grapefruit pith, moist soil, grass and alcohol. Taste is Slightly sweet, slightly bitter, malty and earthy with dark rye bread, caramel, toffee, moist soil, wood, liquorice root, black pepper corns and orange zest. Mouthfeel is soft, round, slightly astringent, tiny boozy and medium to full bodied. Finish is tiny sweet and slightly bitter with rye bread, caramel, moist soil, grass, black pepper corns and orange peal. Good but would have been better without the rye…

Bottled, pours deep mahogany with clear edges and a small off white head. Medium carbonation releases aromas of smoke, peat moss, rye malt and wet soil. Flavor is spicy rye, brown sugar and charred wood. Fairly thin body that finishes with moderate acidity from the rye. Pretty tasty.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bomber pours with a deep red amber body that supports a mocha colored head of foam. The modest aroma offers up malts, subtle nuttiness, a dash of brown sugar and then faint earthy tobacco. The taste starts with a mix of smooth mildly sweet malts and modest pine to floral like hops. It gets into sweet nuttiness and spicy black licorice like hoppiness. Toward the finish it picks up a nice spicy rye twang sensation that is working very well here. Pretty nice brown ale.

Really nice rye brown ale, that is just coincidentally 8.5% abv. Malted chocolate and a little bready/biscuit malt...spicy rye...light roast. Nose and flavor complex yet easy drinking too. I definitely appreciate this one."
