Bottle from Greenville Beer Exchange. Pours coca cola brown with a thin khaki head. Some solid nutty notes on the nose. Ryes kind of muted on the tongue but the nuttiness is strong. Finishes clean. Solid!

phaleslu (6411) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Draft at Charleston Beer Works. Pours a deep, semi-cloudy amber that leans brown and has a beige head that leaves a sheet of lace. Aroma of toasted malts, rye, earthy hops, and chocolate. Flavor of cocoa powder, rye, nuts, toast, dry leaves, and plastic. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a toasty, dry, plasticky mouthfeel. Odd beer but good.

22 ounce bottle poured a dark brown color, aromas of nuts, light chocolate, caramel, and some toast. Flavors are the same as the aromas. Decent brown ale overall.

ben4321 (3867) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Location: Draft at F.I.G. Restaurant, 12/8/12

Aroma:†This one has a nutty and chocolate malt nose to it, with earthy notes too
Appearance:†Pours a brown color with a red hue, and a long lasting head heavy, and coating lace
Flavor:†It has a roasted malt flavor, some nuts, and a later medium-plus bitterness
Palate: this beer has a medium-plus body, a creamy feel, a soft carbonation, and a dry finish
Overall Impression:† I found this too be a really solid, well-made brown ale. It drinks quite nicely, and has very nice components to it. Solid stuff.

Wow! Opaque rich brown color with nice brownish head. Wonderful malt and molasses smell. Really fantastic taste of roasted grains and malty goodness with the perfect sweetness. The best brown I can remember and one of the best overall beers Iíve ever had. Canít wait for them to increase their availability so I can get it in my home state.

Bomber courtesy of ERNESTO987! This one surprised me a ton. Aroma of milk chocolate, rye, piney hops, coffee, and toast. Taste is very smooth, roasty and complex with a great lightly bittered hop finish. Sweet, smooth, hoppy, roasty, and really the best brown ale ive ever had.

Once again, COAST makes me happy to be a Charlestonian. Rye Knot is an awesome brown ale, tossing in tons of rye to the normal mix of roasted malts and hoppy bitterness. The rye meshes well with the flavors of coffee and bitter chocolate, while the dry finish reasserts that this brew is indeed, first and foremost, a hoppy brown. Think of a smarter Dogfish India Brown. (12/2/08).

This is from a growler. Aroma:Smells a little malty, some smokeyness, some oak aromas. There is also a little tangyness to the aroma. Appearance:Dark reddish-brown in color. Light tan head thatís quite tall with good retention. Taste:Malty, a little caramel, chocolate, toasted malts, hazelnut. Palate:Medium body with good carbonation. Overall:This is one of the better examples of brown ale out there, I really enjoyed it.
