Black-Eye Rye is an American-style India Black Ale brewed with rye. Inspired by the popularity of this unique and interesting style, it pours midnight black and features a fluffy cappuccino colored head. Don’t let the dark color fool you though, because this is Red Brick’s hoppiest beer yet! The aroma features complex tropical fruit notes of mango and peach intermingling with classic citrus and pine, as well as a slight hint of cocoa. The flavor is resinous and piney, complimented by a velvety mouth-feel, and finishes with lingering notes of grapefruit and bittersweet chocolate. It’s sure to keep you coming back round after round!

Black with a tan head. Aroma is pine hops, roasted malt and some coffee. Flavor is roasted coffee and chocolate with some pine hops. Bitterness is an interesting mix of rich roasted malt and the sharp bit of hops. Body is actually quite smooth with a richness from the malt. A little bittersweet in the finish.

murky chestnut, thin tan ring. Dusty nose, stale chocolate malt. Flavor equally sweet, chocolate and oily through the end. No bitterness to counter, not getting any rye spice, just straightforward sweetness.

maxwelldeux (4348) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - SEP 22, 2013
Bottle. Pours an extremely dark brown color with absolutely no head on it. The nose has some roasty chocolate notes coming up front on it, with the floral and citrus hop tones coming on the back end. Taste is quite roasty and slightly sweet up front, with the bitterness coming on the back end and very little of the hoppiness coming through. Seems more like a porter than an IPA.

rajendra82 (1048) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - AUG 27, 2013
Fantastically dark pour, that looked like the deepest shade of brown, and had a two finger thick, beautiful khaki head sitting on top. The aromas were roasty, with typical coffee, toffee, chocolate smell seen in stouts, but with a touch of floral hops lurking in the shadows. The taste was astringent, dominated by burnt, cracked grain, coffee, and some bitter hops. The rye presence was hard to detect in the taste. There was some vanilla, and oak notes in the finish. Very silky mouthfeel, closer to a Porter here than a true Stout. If I can recall, this is the best beer I’ve ever had from Red Brick. Good job.

Growler. Pours a dark black with a slight red hue. Has a three inch dark tan head. Taste is of roasted malt, smoke, rye, caramel, hops, citrus, pine, spice and grapefruit. Similar aroma. Has a nice, wet body. The finish is hoppy, bitter and dry. Very easy to drink and quite enjoyable. Would have again.
