Botella @ Ølbaren. Clear deep amber bhrown colour, medium fairly well lasting head. Rye and caramel bit grainy aroma. Ok mouthfeel. The flavour is sweet with caramel, rye, toasty malt, some bitter hops and some dark bread too.

daknole (10202) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 8, 2009
Brown pour, off white head. Aroma is very malty with some cookie dough, caramel and some very distant aroma hops. Flavor is sweet and malty...some ritz crackers, caramel, spice and yeast. This was a nice little surprise.

Maria (10191) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 20, 2009
It’s hazy, dark, red amber with a creamy head. The aroma has notes of malt and light fruit – soft and mild. The flavor has a moderate sweetness and notes of malt, light spice and light fruit. It’s mild and easy to drink.

adnielsen (10037) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Bottle @ home. Pours a dark orange/brown appearance with a nice brown head and good lacing. Fairly spicy rye, caramel, light chocolate, toffee, a bit herbal aroma. Kind of chewy rye malty, bready, moderately spicy, allspice, caramel flavor. Not bad.

Sammy (9438) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2009
A rye not a mild, recent bottle. Refreshin with that rye edge. Moderately pleasant aroma, arising from a medium yellow body topped by good amount of bubbled head. Lace follows through. Very drinkable, refreshing. Warms the body on a cold night.Average mouthfeel, a little edgy but smooth.Drying aftertaste.

Dogbrick (9334) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 22, 2008
This brew pours a clear dark amber color with a medium fluffy off-white head that diminishes slowly. Small patches and strings of lacing. Aroma of malt and barley plus a little rye. Light body with flavors of bready malt, hops and rye. The finish has a doughy malt flavor and a mild hops aftertaste that does not linger long. Slightly above average overall.

JoeMcPhee (8962) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 14, 2011
Deep amber brown pour. The aroma is softly spicy and peppery. A little bit of light mintiness with a bit of soft bready character. A little bit of soft sweetness and a touch of pepper and clove as well. A bit of fruitiness on the back of the palate. A touch of white pepper and some nice estery fruitiness on the back of the palate. A little bit of soft rye character that ties it together quite nicely.

shrubber85 (8836) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - APR 18, 2012
Bottle. Bready malt and dried fruit aroma. Amber color with minimal head. Slightly sweet dried fruit initially followed by a moderately strong rye bread malt flavor. Nicely blended. Love the rye flavor that comes out in this - a great beer.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2010
Bottled. A ruby amber coloured beer with a slight off-white head. A sweetish nutty beer with noticeable rye and caramel or crystal malt sweetness. Decent fruitiness and pretty drinkable.
