8 Malty Nights is a rich, dark ale made with chocolate malts and flaked rye. The Chocolate Rye was brewed by Lompoc brewer Sam Orlansky, who is Jewish and grew up in San Diego with childhood friend Bradley Greenstein. Sam became a brewer; Bradley became a Rabbi with the Congregation Neveh Shalom in Portland. Rabbi Greenstein was present at the brewery November 10 to bless the mash and join the brewers in a toast with Manischewitz.

Salmoniform (1272) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - DEC 18, 2014
Poured from tap to glass. Dark hue with thick creamy tan head that lasted. Fantastic lacing. Aroma is nutty, roasty, caramel, toffee. Mouthfeel is great with a medium body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry sweet with a slight astringent bitter following and clean finish. Overall this is a really good brew.

neepsntatties (1717) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 29, 2011
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!

bhensonb (13860) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 12, 2009
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.

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.
