COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Hints of bittersweet chocolate make this black IPA palatable. Would make a better beer to cook with than drink.

Roasty, creamy, and dark, yet hoppy with floral and citrus notes. Has flavors of coffee, chocolate, and grapefruit, which might not marry as well as I would hope, but is still a uniquely complex beer that is still enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

5/21/13. 12oz bottle thanks to a rep! Dark brown pour, almost black, with a small tan head. Dank hops and a touch of roast on the nose, some soft wheat, and a tiny bready rye spice kick. Nice roasted malt flavor, some coffee and dryness, dank hops, light bitterness, and lingering coffee/roast. Tasty enough!

Cybercat (4031) - Georgia, USA - MAY 17, 2013
Strong aroma - it just about follows me around the room - is quite rye-ish, with firm earthy and hoppy notes and hints of fresh-baked pumpernickel bread (I love pumpernickel BTW!) and regular barley malt. Comes out of the growler a slightly reddish dark chocolate brown with a thick and rather persistent dirty tan head. Flavor is - superb. Mouth-filling. Sublime. Friggin’ delish. Smoky, hoppy, scarcely bitter, hints of licorice, molasses, even a little sour orange and semi-sweet chocolate. Could this get any better? Scarcely. Thick, smooth texture has lively fizz that leaves a nice hoppy and smoky finish. I hope this becomes a Red Brick standard, because I sure could return to it again and again and again!

12 oz bottle pours a dark black color with a nice tan head. Aromas of citrus, pine, chocolate in the background. Full bodied, complex with a bitter finish. Good.

On tap at taco Mac Decatur. This one hits a nice balance between the roastiness and the hop profile. Hops are somewhat muted but complement the bitterness of the roasted malt. Pitch black pour almost bordering on porter status with the looks of it. Little bit of orange citrus aroma. The flavor starts off with the roasted bittersweet malt and coffee flavors. Fading into the the hop profile and you are left with the bitter citrus and pine flavors. A better representation of this tough style.

bottle. near black with a large, fine bubbled, whipped, brown head. sweet aromas of creamed coffee, caramel. flavor has notes of coffee with plenty of cream and toffee. the malt bill is awesome. the tropical fruity hop notes are also very interesting in this style. full bodied with medium carbonation.

Very hoppy small fruit notes, citrus pine and very very minute cocoa flavors. Love the caramel colored head remnants all over glass.. tap
