A blend of barley, oats, wheat and rye malt give us a full-bodied brew with a complex malt flavor and a lingering, dry finish.

On tap at Clybourn. Pours a clear somewhat red/auburn, glowing, small frothy white head. Aroma is pungent, moderately sweet, apple spice, Belgian yeast, estery, sharp banana, strong and sharp clove, light grassy edge, nutty, vegetables trailing off. Flavor follows, sweet, sticky, quite hot, estery, nutty, weird yeasty, tea-like bitterness. Medium bodied, noticeable alcohol, smooth fine carbonation, heavy.

On Tap @ Clybourn location. I don’t know, this one kinda had me guessing at the style, it was kinda of an in betweener of a begian ale, brown, ASA. Had some yeast but also nutty. Pours a nice orangish-brown, foamy head, malty aroma, taste is very malty and of dried dark fruits, yeast presence but lightly. Bitter aftertaste. An o.k. brew.

Draft sampler, Nov. 1. Another punchy amber ale with a mild snout full of American hops. Specialty malts give it a more spicy tone that sets it a little more apart.

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 1, 2008
Draft at GI Clybourn. Actually a Belgian strong ale. Pours a deep red-brown. Nose is very nicely hopped with some spice and pine. Taste is super grainy/spicy. Very clean tasting with a kiss of citrus, though the rye does dominate, a bit of sweetness from the corn as well. Finish is dry rye. Nice.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 1, 2008
tap at goose island clybourn.... semi-clear caramel brown pour with a slight off-white head.... aroma of corn and grains, sweeter malts, and a little grass... flavors deeply embedded with grains and caramel maltiness that finishes with a slight spicy bitterness. thin layer of spicy rye throughout. medium carbonation and average mouthfeel.

I wasnt a real big fan of this draft. I usually like rye beers but this was a little too spicy. Alsmost grainy. It a nice creamy feel to it and looked great in the snifter, but the mix of rye and oats didnt really do it for me.

boto (1959) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - OCT 17, 2008
Draught @ Clybourn: This one came in a pint glass, even though the menu said it would be served in a tulip. It pours a slightly hazy amber color with a small off-white head. There was only a little lacing. The aroma was that of earthy hops and some spices. The taste had earthy, biscuity notes as well as some peppery spices. It had a dry finish. Very Nice.

Ughsmash (7361) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 19, 2007
On tap at GI – Clybourn. Poured a lovely, clear reddish-caramel with a short, creamy white head and thorough coating lacing as it descended. The aroma picked up sweeter, candied floral notes backed by assertive dry white peppery spices, cloves, and corn-derived sweetness (that worked). The flavor was peppery and lively with strong, spicy yeast leading the way.. sweetness from medium-skinned fruits and caramel.. long, enjoyable finish. Higher carbonation on the palate with a creamy feel and a nice spicy contrast.. refreshing sweet peppery finish. Good stuff.

On tap at GI Cly. Hazy red dark color with small ring of a white head. Fruity, red apple, sweet malt aroma. Spiced up flavor, fruity(grape, red fruit), very sweet and malty. Full bodied and no carb. Okay, a little sweet and no hop presence.
