Draft at the brewery as Rye Project. Dark, amber- brown color with a lasting white head. Sweet malty aroma. Sweet caramel flavor and hint of coffee with a little rye spice in the finish. Nice to see something other than a rye IPA.

Swing top to taster at the RBWG Grand Tasting (thanks James). Looks good; a semi-opaque brown with thin light beige lacing. Smells of dark fruit with a hint of rye. Tastes like it smells with a good mouthfeel. Enjoyable.
