COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 1, 2011
Snifter at chappys near Dayton Ohio. Pours deep brown with a small creamy tan head. Aroma is strong roasty chocolate malts and a surprising amount of hoppiness. Some earthy woody notes and licorice. Flavor starts very strong burnt toast and roasty malts. Picks up a strong piney hop note with a sharp black malt crispness and a slightly milky creamy finish. Medium to medium full body and a softer carbonation. pretty good, though the pine and hop bitterness was a bit too much

Tap at Blue Dog. Pours a deep brown with amber notes and a medium creamy off white head. Aroma of rye, tart cherries, nuts and light chocolate. Flavor was a nice mix of the same. One of the better Heavy Seas beers I have had.

BMan1113VR (7858) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 26, 2010
2010 Bottle thanks to captain cougar. Pours with a near black body with a large and fluffy off-white head. Aromas of rye, citrus hops (orange mainly), cereal, alcohol, brown sugar and light roast. Very floral and pretty estery as well. Flavors of rye, bitter and astringent roast. Husky, acrid, roasty, chalky, messy! Very confusing after such a nice aroma. Creamy carbonation. Something is seriously wrong with the acidic nature and acrid taste of the grain bill.

OldMrCrow (1830) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 12, 2010
Dark pour.

Vanilla and molasses nose; rich molasses and rye flavors. Nice hop finish kicks in late, almost pushing black IPA territory. I really like that. Good flavor intensity, very nice mouthfeel -- not over the top, but definitely rich without being hard to drink. This is a terrific beer, and I’m rather surpised to find it not rated higher.

TheAlum (5701) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - DEC 2, 2010
22 oz bottle courtesy of an TheEpeeist trade. Thanks, Chris! Pours a nice roasty brownish dark hue, edges and bottom lighter brownish orange, dark bodied overall, a huge cakey light brown head laces very well and stays very large. Aromas are roasty malts and flourishes of biscuits, big dry floral and piney hops, some grapefruit, roasty cocoa, touches of rye and bread, caramel, roasted malts move on more, but the hops are fresh, potent, and dry. A touch of vanilla and creaminess, largely roasty malts, some light sweetness, and a big bite of dry, piney hops. Initial is medium bodied, with moderate hopping, dry and floral, a creamy body of bread, biscuits, some light cocoa moving into dry roast aand piney floral hops. Doses of rye, bread, biscuits, not overly sweet, some bakers cocoa, but a gentle creamy lighter body. The dry piney and floral hops are strong, good dry roast, man.. This one definitely surprises. Alcohol well hidden, feels much lighter bodied than it would suggest.. Good complexity, dry bitter and roasty.. Just the way I like it. Quite a nice surprise.

Heathen (1470) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - NOV 27, 2010
THOUGHTS: Not a bad beer, but nothing all that spectacular either. It had too much hops and not enough roasted malt for a porter, in my opinion. Only when it was very warm and the bottom of the bottle was poured in did that change. The rye seemed to soften the roasted malt, making the resinous, rubbery hops to dominate. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a clear, dark brown that was nearly black in the glass with red highlights when held to the light. The aroma was weak. There was light to moderate roasted malt, chocolate and coffee; moderate to heavy resinous hops; light yeast; rye at first, and Band-aid. The initial flavor was sweet and light to moderately bitter; while the finish was rather sweet and very light to moderately bitter with an average to long duration. There was roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, resinous hops, more chocolate as it warmed. The roasted malts blended nicely with the hops, but then the hops took over a little too much. The medium body was a bit oily with rather fizzy carbonation and a slightly metallic and ever so slightly alcoholic finish.
