Bottle shared by someone at October Houston tasting. Pours a clear deep gold with a white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma has sweet grains and hay with a bit of a steamed veggie note. Flavor has a lot of deep grain and bread with a hint of steamed veggies.

Tmoney99 (10551) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 1, 2011
Poured dark brown color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted malt, rye and nut aroma. Medium to full body and a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met with a drinkable complex beer.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4895) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 16, 2011
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark red-brown color with lots of debris and a medium sized creamy orange-white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was strong sour toasted caramel with a sweet and very malty presence. The flavor was strong toasted caramel, faint sour cherries and undertones of bread and honey. The finish was long, sweetish, fruity and had lingering caramel. Thick and smooth body. Excellent.

DasBierChef (1083) - Hudson, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 10, 2011
Pours a clear, dark amber with a thin white head that fades quickly leaving behind a little lacing. Aroma is primarily malty and has a bit of citrus hoppyness too. Flavor has a robust amount of tasty malt and rye. Some hoppy bitterness coming through in the end. A very pleasant surprise!

Damico (2554) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 29, 2011
The beer pours very light for a strong ale, so quirky. Apparently everyone at TJs asks if it is the right beer since it is so light in color. The aroma of Belgian yeast dominates with sweet notes and that unique rye aroma. The flavors are sweet with rye notes on a medium syrupy body. The rye notes come in at the end with light hops.

DalzAle (1975) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - AUG 22, 2011
Bottle. Dark orange pour, a little lasting carbonation and a really nice nutty/sweet aroma. Flavor is leather, raisins, cloves and nice and caramelly all the way through to a pleasantly sweet finish, Canít believe Iíve passed this one over for so long.

vikingguy (800) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - AUG 6, 2011
Attractive ruby red color with foamy white head; some fine floating sediment. Mellow sweet malt aroma. Nice taste: Like the aroma, it has a mellow sweet malt flavor. Notes of caramel, brown sugar, honey and vanilla. Medium body; hops are fairly mild. Quite cloying but overall a nice taste. I drank a beer recently called Monks Blood and this kind of reminds me of that.

What? Looks okay: dark copper with off white heat. Taste like a college penicillin experiment. Are you kidding me? Itís not good at all. Not at all. Iím highly suspect of the high marks of this stuff on this web site. So should you be!!!!!!!!

Clear dark amber with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet, dark malty, dried fruit and yeasty. Flavor is quite sweet and moderate bitter. Dry and moderate bitter finish. 090711

Jabswitch (278) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 15, 2011
Deep amber. Thin, filmy head with lacings. A rather sour aroma with some clove. Taste is strong and fairly bitter with ample maltiness. I like rye beers so this one appealed to me. I would probably buy again.
