4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Alright, I had this one poured for me at the new Cincinnati Moerlein Over-The-Rhine brewery opening last week - This is a fine, spicey rye beer, dark mahogany hued and a pleasant grainy kick.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Poured a dark brown color with an average fizzy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted rye, sweet malt aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet tingly finish of moderate to long duration. Solid drinkable brew.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft - pours dark brown with tan head. Nose is pine. Flavor adds chocolate and light roasted malts. Quite bitter with some sweetness. Should be an Indian Brown Ale, but what do I know? Medium body with plenty of character.
