tap at Dark Horse the weekend before last - At the brewpub they told me this one was a blend of a couple of their collaboration brews. I heard the Livery mentioned and I didn’t catch the other. Since it definitely has rye in it I’ve put the style as specialty grain. The aroma is of earthy hops and rye. The taste has considerable bitterness with an earthy flavor and the rye coming through noticeably. It’s medium bodied and tasty. Interesting brew that works well.
