Tasted at the Fayetteville Foam Festival. Didn't like this one. Very peppery. Much too much so. Earthy.

Bottle@Montreal. Deep golden color, off-white head. Spicy aroma. Fairly bitter flavor with rye. Slightly oily, hoppy finish. Medium-full body, medium carbonation. Not bad.

Pronounced spicey/pepper follow-through from the peppercorns. Hard to tell what the rye is doing through that. Also a distinctly earthy herb taste due to the pepper.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours murky amber with a small beige head which quickly disappears to a ring around the top. Nose shows heavy toffee, shortbread biscuit, dried fruits and plum. Taste is very rye focused. Loads of spice driven earthy tones, plum, raisin, toffee. A little bit of heat and a touch sharp but goes down ok still. Rye not hidden at all which is a pleasant surprise. Really tasty stuff

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Boisson rouge-orange sous un petit lit de mousse fugace, elle semble plutôt mince et émet des odeurs de sucre cuit et de baies rouges. Au goût, c’est le sucre d’orge qui domine, avec une finale poivrée et presque fumée. Le tout est bien balancé, relativement savoureux et accessible malgré des ingrédients peu orthodoxes. DDC n’en est pas à sa première expérimentation, et celle-ci figure absolument parmi les réussites, sans parler d’une incontournable.

Was a taste I was not expecting, but very much enjoyed. I think people should try it at least once

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
341mL bottle. 5%. Pours a golden yellow with a white foam that bubbles away quickly. Aroma is fresh cracked pepper, mild grainy note. Taste is quite smooth, lightly hopped, mild sweetness and the pepperiness lingers into the finish, but is not unpleasant. Inexplicably spicy and delicious.

S: Dark malt aroma, hint of soy. Hope this hasn’t turned.
A: Reddish Brown with quickly disappearing white head.
T: Dark malts, earthy. Maybe some caramel.
P: Flat with a little bitterness, lively mouthfeel from the peppercorns.
I do enjoy the peppercorn aftertaste. It is very much present, and adds to a somewhat average beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Half time with lunch today. After the prolonged visit with the folks and my sister at my homestead.. I needed something to fortify me with lunch. This was it. I got pepper from pretty much the start thru finish. Some light bakers chocolate and some fruitiness. A pretty mellow rye beer. The rye is small and over toned by the peppercorns. A decent aside from IPA’s and such.
