edsspoon (323) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2014
500ml bottle. Pours copper with a fizzy, slightly off white head. Good retention and some lacing. Aroma of malts, caramel, slight grassy hops and liquorice. Taste of caramel, toasty malt, slight bitterness, some dark fruit, hints of spice and a medium to strong sweetness. Medium carbonation, thin body, very sticky. I found it hard to finish because it was quite sickly.

dbhenry (120) - El Paso, Texas, USA - APR 22, 2014
This dark beer has a nice caramel taste, with some unusual overtones of flavor. It is medium hopped, It has a good dark malt taste, and I think the rye gives it that taste overtone that is pretty interesting.
