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!

22 oz bomber-Dark mahogany/brown pour w/o much head.Faint aromas of chocolate & rye w/a little coffee. Pretty much tastes like it smells, some chocolate, some hops, a little coffee w/a heavy rye finish. Kind of rough around the edges, has some bite to it. I think this may age well, mellow out, & become really nice. We’ll see.

beer of summer @ OTH. dark brown, beige head. aroma, malty, roasted with a strong rye aroma. flavors, nice mix of the hops and roast along with some coffee and chocolate. Rye profile is really forward while the finish keeps a hop citrus/grapefruit that is a little too dominant.

Great looking beer with a very dark brown almost black clear body and a tan foamy lasting head. Aroma is nice, mostly malt, coffee, chocolate. The flavor is bitter chocolate with a hint of sweetness at the finish. Well done.

williamherbert (1282) - Syracuse, New York, USA - AUG 4, 2010
Aroma is roasted rye malts with a spicy peppery end. Flowery hops float above the spicy peppers. Great. The appearance is smooth, light brown head. Flat, deep chocolate brown with plum/purple at the edges. Head is incredible. The flavor is spicy rye and spicy habanero peppers mesh beautifully. Roasted caramel malts and mocha on the finish. A nice peppery burn at the end. Feels creamy with a good deal of carbonation. Overall, it’s less a porter than a strong ale infused with spices. Heavy and challenging and delicious. Spicy as hell.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - AUG 3, 2010
22oz bottle from the Sahara Mart in Bloomington, IN. Pours a deep brown colored body with a finger-width, creamy, light tan head that dissipates slowly and leaves lots of lacing. Aroma is some sweet citrus pines and caramel with light notes of rye spice, chocolate, and a hint of toast. Flavor is similar. Lots of citrus pines up front with a medium sweet caramel to balance. A light chocolate, rye spice, and a light roast shows up in the flavor before this finishes dry with a light resin and moderate, sweet pine bitterness. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium, smooth body and creamy carbonation. Overall, a nice beer. More like a black IPA than a porter. Lots of sweet pines with a smooth malt balance and pleasant hint of rye spice. Good one.
