3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2013 Looks liquidised bread indeed, and smells of bread, hops, sour-sweet, as if expecting black-ipa, all in a medium way. Taste is sour rye... carbonation kicks in with slight watery side, accompanied with chokeberry, in the end rubbery not. Rye overall lets itself be known through most phases described, but perhaps closer to bottles end sour note lingers without an adittional taste accompany?

A clear dark amber body with a minimal tan head. Nose is mild with notes of rye, caramel and sherry. Taste is bittersweet and somewhat harsh, the finish is fairly dry. Soft carbonation and rich palate. A decent, simple rye beer.

33cl bottle. Pours deep amber with off-white head. Aroma is full of rye bread, slightly burned. Dark taste of mocha-ish malts, rye and medium bitterness. Aftertaste a bit bland, still. Quite well balanced and tasty overall - especially rye is great addition.

From the archives: not the rating of latest batch of Rukki Eil. Specialty grain is always fun, but to me it must be very well balanced. This brew was not - powdery, dry and not rye enough. As always - I should give it another go. Maybe they learned something.
