3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle. Dark, reddish orange pour with a thick, pillowy offwhite head. Aroma has midly sweet bread notes with a touch of rye grain. Some honey, some citrus and pine hops. I also get touches of melon and pineapple. There is a decided dry-fruit presence as well as bit of dark breads. Flavor is mildly sweet and nutty, nice fruit and sweet malt notes. RIch dark rye spiciness comes out towards the middle. It has a smooth, velvety body and creamy texture. Nice beer, really.
