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!

UPDATED: JUL 2, 2010 (22oz bomber thanks to blutt59) deep rich brown with creamy bubbles and good lace. Nose of juicy citrus, rye, and pumpernickel bread. Taste of bitter chocolate, rye bread, with a nice bittersweet balance. Subtle grapefruit is worked in here, with an oily chocolaty finish.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 26, 2010
Bottle from Sam’s. Pours dark brown with smallish beige head. Nose is surprisingly hoppy and spicey... only slightly roasty. Smells a bit more like a "black IPA" and tastes much more like one. Hops come through more than anything else, but the rye adds some spice. Meh.

ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUN 24, 2010
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

garrison (789) - Cin. city, Ohio, USA - JUN 23, 2010
From a twenty four ounce bottle purchased at "Keller’s 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 (4848) - 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 (909) - 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.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 12, 2010
Pours near black with reddish hues and a fully receding tan head. Notes of toffee, caramel malt, chocolate, pepper, and spice. Full to heavy bodied, alcoholic with soft carbonation
