Brewed with barley, wheat, oats and – in a nod to traditional upstate New York grains – rye, this fine ale is malty and creamy on the palate. The flavors of the grains and earth shine through. Enjoy the refreshment of the season and joys of fine brewing.

12oz poured an orangish color with a white head. Nice aroma of malt and rye. The flavor a bit peppery from the rye and the malt. On the back end is almost like a lemongrass something kind of sweet but blends ver well.

fidelis83 (1823) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - OCT 23, 2012
Pours a somewhat hazy, vibrant copper with a 3 finger, fluffy off white head that has great retentino and leaves good lacing. Aroma is full of rye spice, husky grain, cereal and fruity belgian yeast. Flavor is raw grain and tree fruit up front, coriander and spices, stone fruit, mineral and light citrus, spicy and grassy hops to the finish. Light to medium body with a creamy, slightly dry entry, light, blanketing and somewhat sharp carbonation and dry, slightly acidic finish. Really tasty, probably would be a belgian pale if not for the specialty grain label.

Single bottle, Total Wine. Pours a nice hazy copper with a large creamy head and a lot of lacing. Aroma has some brown rice and black pepper added to the expected grain. Yeast, sourdough bread, and a little sweet citrus in the flavor. Really interesting palate - a lot of carbonation but still feels thick and silky on the tongue. Good stuff.

On tap at Burgatory. Mild fruity esters, coriander, nice fresh hops. Sweet yeasty undertones. Cloudy dark orange-amber with thin off-white lacing head. Medium-heavy watery body with medium carbonation and mild warming. Starts medium malty sweet with Belgian ale spice and yeast notes. Sweetness towards the finish with mild nutty notes. Astringent alcoholic and bubblegum powder. Bitter after.

PorterPounder (5196) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 22, 2012
Jacksonville, Fl. - Grassroots Natural Market - 12 oz bottle. Slightly hazy, medium copper with a sticky thick white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma has an enticing sweetness to it with some light bubble gum notes, a touch of white grapes, some brown sugar. Flavor is full and bold with some licorice accents, a touch of molasses, some caramel, a hint of bubble gum and a touch of vanilla in the back end, thick rich mouthfeel. Would make a good winter warmer.

AirForceHops (2712) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 21, 2012
Draft @ Amesbury Ale House. Dark hazy amber color with 1/2 inch thick foam that laced well. Nose is mostly Belgian yeast with sugar. Wheat seems to mingle with the Belgian yeast and malt. The rye is subtle. Texture is creamy. Very well balanced. Incredibly easy to drink, my glass was emptied real quick.
