750ml bottle. Pours a deep, rich, caramel, brown color with a one finger tan head that leaves some spotty lace. Aroma has tons of toasted malt, with hints of citrus and spicy rye. Taste is very complex with lots of roasty malt, chocolate, spicy rye and citrus, along with hints of caramel. Big thick mouthfeel, very creamy and viscous, with lighter carbonation.

Bottle thanks to Drowland ! Pours a deep burnt umber color with a thick two finger eggshell foam. On the nose its rustic, with spicy rye, roasted malts and a touch of citrus poking through as well. The palate is well balanced with great notes of chocolate malt, spicy rye, orange pith and bitter coffee... all comes together into a soft surprisingly easy drinker... nice creamy mouthfeel.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 mL bottle--pours a solid, deep ruby red color with a large beige head that leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma of bread, fruit and malt, almost like a fruitcake. Rye hits you first, followed by some malt, caramel and a touch of oats. Hops were around, but very soft and the taste stayed sweet. A lot going on with the brew. Light bitter finish. Produce place.
