toasty/roasty aroma, slight chocolate/coffee taste, very mild, I could see drinking many of these without being aware of the number

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a tobacco burst with a thick foamy head that laces on down.
Smells bready, some malts, toasty.
Taste is pretty flat, the bread is there up front, some raisin or fig sweetness in the middle, and finishes with a very gentle hop bitterness. Not bad, but not outstanding. Definitely sessionable.

Pours a dark brown with a off white head. Aroma of light roasting and alcohol. Very light flavor, like roasted water. Meh.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A - Deep amber caramel color with an average sized, off-white creamy and foamy head. A little lacing left.
S - Grainy, caramel, and toffee malt and rye mixed with a peppery spiciness.
T - A lot of malty flavors that follow the nose. Taste a lot like a spiced rye bread. Has a slight zing to it with a hint of lemon and apple. Lots of spices. Moderate floral hops present as well.
M - Medium to light body with decent carbonation. Crisp and fairly smooth. A little light for the flavors but not bad.
D - Fairly easy to drink. Spices and rye might get a little much after a few but it goes down smooth and is a lot like drinking a bread.
Notes: Pretty good beer that is very bread like and definitely is a rye beer. Spices worked quite well and really compliment the wintery feel of this beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown, good head, lots of lacing, medium body. First sip is bitter and reminds of toasted dark rye bread. While rye does not last long, bitterness does. Easy and enjoyable to drink in cold weather. Pretty good.

Didn’t really notice the rye. Malty, carmally, fairly weak on flavor and boring.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light, malty aroma. Mahogony pour with a medium frothy white head. Flavor of roasted malts and very light on the hops. Light spice presence, but this would be better with more bite.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Pours dark and thin looking. A little fizzy, but no head. Nice aroma of slight coffee and spices. Taste fuller than it looks, but not a lot of flavor. So-So.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Brown with white head. Light grainy rye and toffee aroma. Similar taste with a bit of a sour mash rye finish. This beer is medium body dark full of flavor and low alcohol, I want more.
