This poured a dark brown color with a beige head. The aroma contains some rye along with some chocolate and marshmellows. The flavor contains rye, chocolate, caramel, and oddly more marshmellows. The finish is a mixture of sourness but more sweet than anything. Overall an different and pretty good beer.

Bottle… Clear, very dark lager with ruby highlights and little to no head. The aroma puts forward chocolate, toasted cashews and a gentle dusting of espresso. Medium-bodied and creamy/silky with lively carbonation. Well-balanced chocolate and rye flavor. Finishes lightly bitter with rye dryness.

Attractive mahogany body is clear when held to light. Aroma of toasted rye bread, faint chocolate and spicy hops. Creamy body with a rye bite. A hint of red apple skin and pepper in the taste add to the spicy hop, rye, and choclate notes. I’m a sucker for these well done rye beers.
