From a 500ml bottle on 2/4/2016. Pours a clear deep amber with a biggish foamy head Has a malty aroma of caramel and rye bread. The flavour follows suit - more caramel and rye bread, a bit of toffee, a touch of spice, and a very mild bitterness. Medium bodied with mild carbonation. A very solid,well made, tasty beer.

Ar- dark bread crust is dominant on the nose with some caramel and hints of malt sweetness. Also get a hummus note.
Ap- clear, dark copper beer pours a nice white to off white head.
Fl- malt sweetness is well balanced by toasted bread crust and subtle hop bitterness. A hint of caramel in the mid palate.
Mf- med bodied, nicely carbonated,
Ov- this is like drinking bread, and is a little one note. It's a good note but not a very good one.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
It is precisely what it’s supposed to be. Dark copper color with slowly rising carbonation and some semblance of a slightly off white head if poured correctly. Very caramelly on the nose with a generous touch of brioche or other such thick bread as that. Not much bitterness which is fine for this style and very pleasant, clean-cut, and drinkable. Light-medium bodied with dull carbonation. Aftertaste is cut abruptly short but will have you reaching for more. I very much enjoyed it.
