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!

12 ounce bottle. Pours a jet black color with a medium beige head. A really nice aroma of rye and spicy hops. Reminds me of Dubhe a bit. The flavor is great: charred wood, smoke, rye, tropical fruit, light bitterness. Big milky chocolates. Very smooth and tasty.

TURDFERGUSON (3930) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Bottle at the study. Dark brown with a medium sized tan head. Nose is very roasty upfront, lots of cocoa, light coffee. Some hops, but it’s more Stout is than black ipa. A bit dry on the finish, some light char. Solid and doesn’t taste too much like old hops, thank The Lord.
