4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle. Colour... very dark brown with hues of garnet when held to the light. Nose... roasty and chocolatey with hints of rye. Palate... much more rye than the nose, but more like a toasted, marbled rye, here. Chocolate leads the way with this one and it has plenty of chewiness, froth, and some booze to round it all out. L’chaim!

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Really dark brown pour. Tan nitro head. Smells like chocolate and malt. Fully body. Nitro "carb". Rye malt mixed with chocolate. Not at all harsh. Really smooth and silky.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap @ The Side Bar release party... Poured deep, dark, ruby/burgundy with a thin, grayish, off-white head. Rich, rye malts, bready, sweet, grain aroma. Very in your face with the rye but everything blended well with the hops and sweet characters. The palate sizzled nicely on the tongue with a cocoa and bread-like finish.
