3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Wood, maple syrup and walnut aromas. Deep amber-brown in color. Super sweet with walnut and maple notes. A bit overly syrupy sweet...almost like a cordial.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours cloudy brown with a thick white head. Has a cotton candy and chocolate rye aroma. This beer is thick as a brick. Lots of syrup. Pretty much a rye bomb. This beer tastes as much as a Thomas Hardy ale as anything I have ever had brewed in the US. This is freakin’ awesome!! Lots of heat in this beer. The esters that emerge from the glass are very fruity.
