COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
High quality pale, carmel, chocolate and Munich malts get a boost with roasted and chocolate rye. Dark and Light Belgian Candy Sugar is added to the kettle during the boil for smoothness and flavor. Belgian yeast gives off some fruity esters and the brew is delicately hopped so as to not overpower the malt flavors.

ajnepple (3553) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - JUN 4, 2015
12 oz bottle into a pint glass at Vaudeville Mews. Black appearance with a minimal tan head. Dark, malty, light spiced flavor with notes of rye, toffee, chocolate, roast, caramel and light fruity esters. Definitely some off notes and flavors in there too. Kinda shitty and hard to drink.

Capa (2316) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - APR 7, 2015
Black with a creamy beige head. Aroma is pretty standard porter. Flavor is similar with a healthy dose of earth notes. Not a lot in the way of rye spice. Pretty solid porter but I wish the rye was more prominent.

drowland (7055) - Georgia, USA - JAN 24, 2015
12oz bottle from Happy’s, Cedar Falls, June 2014. Black pour with a nice tan head, good lacing. Okay aroma, roasted malts, sweetness, a little astringent, fruity. Decent flavor, coffee, roast, rye bready, fruity, a little acidic. Eh.

So he says "My wife’s a pain in the ass. She’s always busting my friggin’ agates. My daughter’s married to a real loser bastard. And I got a rash so bad on my ass, I can’t even sit down. But you know me. I can’t complain."

Fuckin’ A, man. I got a rash, man.

islay (1525) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 9, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Dry and dusty aroma features scents of coffee with sugar, brown sugar, raisin, pumpernickel bread, Brazil nuts, and peanut dust. Pours a very dark brown with a medium brown to amber hue. Small to moderate amount of beige head. Nutty, dry taste features flavors of mocha and rye bread. A touch of sugary sweetness. Not spicy, as some rye beers are; more of a dry, roasted, nutty, umami taste. Light to medium body; maybe a bit watery. Smooth and soft in the palate. Reasonably complex and interesting, but these aren’t my preferred flavors and aromas.

daknole (10320) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 26, 2013
Very dark brown pour and a nice beige head. Very roasty flavored beer. Bitterness hits a bit followed by some nice spicy rye notes. Not bad at all.

malrubius (2130) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - SEP 15, 2013
Bottle from Johns. Dark dark brown with lasting head and a little lace. Mild spicy woody hop aroma. Mild chocolate raisin sweetness balances with spicy grainy woody hop bitterness. Carbo is a little sharp. Decent enough.

DiarmaidBHK (3785) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 30, 2013
Bottle from Johns grocery. Pours black with a thin khaki. Nice roasted malt on the nose. The roast is predominant on the tongue with the rye sliding in more on the finish. It’s interesting but it feels like the rye and the roasted malt are competing with each other more than complementing each other.

blipp (7083) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 12, 2013
Bottle. Pours deep brown with a beige head. Medium roasted malts, hints of dry chocolate, light Belgian yeasty notes, and light flowery hops in the finish. A hint of the rye malts lingers as well. A little busy, but pretty good nonetheless.

jcnielsen (2681) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Bottle. Pours a deep brown color with off white head. Chocolate, roasty, rye aromas. Roasty, toffee, veggie, light nutty, somewhat tangy flavors. Not that great.
