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!

argo0 (11642) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 18, 2010
22oz bottle. Medium beige head atop clear dark brown body, nice lacing. Aroma is medium sweet, pine, rye, some bittersweet chocolate, light caramel. Taste is moderately sweet, pine, some bittersweet chocolate, rye. Smooth medium body, some acidity, fairly drinkable. Put it among some black IPAs and it’d fit right in. But whatever style it is, it’s pretty tasty -- hats off to the homebrewer who developed the recipe.

bhensonb (11526) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 26, 2010
Bomber from Bruisin Ales. Pours really dark brown with a foamy, clingy 4 finger beige/tan head. Aromas of dark malt and some hop. Medium plus body with lots of foamy carbonation. Flavor is very hoppy. The rye harshness, sorry other rye lovers, is present, there’s a strong hint of coffee/chocolate, and there’s a lot of hop bitter. Love rye. Love hops. Love this.

Tmoney99 (11085) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 28, 2010
Bottle. Poured dark brown color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate toasted malty, earthy and rye aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy dark toasted bittersweet flavor with medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid complex beer.

Drake (8981) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 7, 2011
22 ounce bottle form Wine Warehouse in Charlottesville, VA, opened 6/28/11. Pours a reddish brown color with a large frothy tan head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of chocolate, rye, minty and floral hop notes. The taste is Kind of an odd leathery, minty taste, if that makes any sense. Almost like menthol. Some roast and herbal notes in there as well. Medium bodied. Weird beer, and I’ll be drinking it rather quickly.
