2010 Rye Porter

Winners from our 2009 Letter of Marque Homebrew Competition will work along side our brewers to create this one time special release. Letter of Marque will feature a different beer every year selected from our national homebrew competition. Historically, a Letter of Marque was a document that made a Pyrate a legitimate professional. Hence, our Letter of Marque makes a home brewer a legitimate professional as well!

Dark pour with a fluffy beige head. Aroma is roast and milk chocolate. Really bitter on the verge of being astringent, which may have be the rye. Coffee, Chocolate and a chalky finish

From a twenty four ounce bottle purchased at "Kellerís IGA" in the "Gaslight Clifton" neighborhood - This one poured a very dark brown brew with a tan head of foam and grainy aroma. Tastewise, this beer is definitely complex and respectable, with the cocoa-coffee sidebars that usually escape many imperial porters!

jgb9348 (5681) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 20, 2010
Nice rich pitch black coloured body (100% opaque) with a thin, fast-dying tan head. Aroma of malt, coffee, alcohol, chocolate and a touch of rye- very nice actually! Medium-bodied; Assertive flavours up front with hops the most prevalent. Deep pungent rye and malt come through with a little roasted caramel and some deep coffee tastes. Aftertaste shows a lot of bitterness - ranging from hops to rye - nice. Overall, a nice beer, that shows a lot of strong flavours, but finishes relatively mildly and has a pleasant dryness at the end - true to style as well. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Total Wine Alexandria, Virginia on 15-June-2010, sampled at home in Washington on 20-June-2010.

wavers1 (916) - Notown, California, USA - JUN 15, 2010
bottle courtesy of fiver29, thanks for a new importer rate! pours a slightly thinner brown than expected, nice large 2 finger head, consistent spotting. aroma is spicy with lots of rye, and some roasty smokyness of the base importer coming through. the taste is more balanced, nice spicy rye comes through in the finish more, and is not too much. the body is super creamy, smooth, velvety, very nice for a rye beer.

brainlair (236) - Maryland, USA - JUN 8, 2010
22oz bottle. Pours a dark, almost completely opaque brown. Aroma has citrus hops, burnt coffee, alcohol, dark chocolate, and a bit of spicy rye. Flavor has some orange citrus, with a ton of bitter roast and bitter hops. Finish is extremely bitter. The trouble with this is that itís too bitter, which swamps everything.

Nice hoppy, robust porter nose, some chocolate, spicy hops, lots of roast, light coffee. The taste is moderately to light sweet, moderately bitter, milk chocolate, light caramel, herbal/floral hops and spicy rye. Really solid beer.

EricE (1367) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 8, 2010
Pours a dark brown slightly hazy with a light tan head. Citrus hops on the nose with some pine, roast, a bit of caramel malt, and a touch of chocolate. Balanced malt and hop flavor. Some roast with caramel malt and a touch of spiciness. Good amount of bitter hops on the finish. Not bad.

Root beer appearance with a dense bone colored head. Aroma is of spruce and tootsie rolls with a honey sweetness. Taste is more sprucey with hop bitterness playing lead throughout.. Finish is clean excepting pithy bitterness. $6/22oz
