COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a black as night hoppy American ale with hints of pine needles, roasty malt, and spicy green peppercorns. It is brewed with 8% malted German rye and bittered with Magnum and Columbus hops with Simcoe and Amarillo hops used for flavor and aroma. At 5% alcohol it is a sessionable but full-bodied brew.

hopscotch (9120) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - MAY 4, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2013 Draft... RBWG 2013...Tar black pour with a small, lightly-tanned head. Great retention. The nose is a blend of dark chocolate, toasted tree nuts and only whispers of rye graininess and spiciness. Full-bodied with laid-back carbonation. The flavor is a mélange of dark chocolate, acrid smoke, burnt malts and light acidity. Lengthy, acrid, moderately bitter finish.

Poured a black color at the brewery aromas of roast, earth, rye, and some malt. Flavors are the same, roast, hops, and rye, a nice beer overall.

decaturstevo (5002) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Brown black pour. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, coffee. Chocolate blends with the bitter to give it a sharp dark chocolate like bitter. Medium full bodied with good carbonation. A real good beer.

TURDFERGUSON (3951) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 27, 2013
Tap at Intuition, RBWG. Pours a muddy dark brown with a small sudsy beige head. Nose is nutty, earthy, light peppercorn, miniscule rye. Flavor is similar, hard to decipher the spice from the rye and pepper. Found that the hops took a bit of backseat in this one.

jordankw (1) - jacksonville, Florida, USA - FEB 22, 2013 does not count
Draft at brewery - Roasty with a sweet nose of caramel. Pours dark brown with a off white head. Has a good hop presence and rye spiciness to offset the sweetness.

raradel (340) - Atlanti Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 18, 2013

On tap at GABF 2011. Pours a almost pure black color with a medium white head. A sweet nose of caramel, rye, some hops in there competing. The flavor is very nice; rich robust spicy rye, some caramel, toasted malts, a bit thin. Very smooth. Nice.
