3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ Ratman’s. Thanks you, Ratman! Pours a hazy brown appearance with a cream colored head. Quite spicy rye, caramel, piney, bready, light fruity aroma. Fairly spicy, bready, a bit husky, somewhat citrusy flavor. A little disappointing.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
"A very spicy dry rye brew, almost overly so. Muddled kinda ugly pour. Beyond that there was some non descript hops and muddled malts, but as much as I like rye beer I wasn’t too impressed with this one. It was ok."

Bottle at Zoo Brew. Pours a clear deep amber with a light brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a lot of rye and a smoked meat note with a bit of sweetness underlying. Flavor has rye and smoked throughout with a touch of bitterness in the finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber from Capone’s. Pours turbid dark brown with 2-finger khaki head. Nose is heavy rye, hops, some butyric acid. Tastes earthy malty, with mild hops, brown sugar, an overall tart rye flavor, and a medium palate heft.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Rogue. Clear, deep red pour. Wispy, white lacing. Nose is funky smoked tea, similar to Kambucha or suchong tea. Smoked, brown sugar taste with kambucha sweet tea. Strange beer. Cloying sweetness as you drink through the small pour, but soft body is a nice change from the abrasive bitterness in most of Rogue’s offerings.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz bottle, shared with friends. Mostly clear darker red / brown color. One-finger off-white head. God thick lace. Medium body, smooth carbonation. Dry finish. Interesting rye beer - different than most I’ve tried, mostly in that it’s not nearly as hoppy. Much more prominent rye malt. No balance, but it’s a rye-featuring beer. Toasty, spicy, bready malt. Maybe a tiny bit of earthy hop. Rye malt is very big, lingers long in the aftertaste, but I don’t mind it, I think it’s pretty interesting. Very much like rye bread, which I dig. Bitter taste, very dry. I was told by someone before I bought this that it was terrible, a drain-pour, she even said. I can see why, it’s a rye-bomb. But that’s interesting to me.. Unique thing, here

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at Happy Gnome. Murky amber pour with a white head. Pretty bland and thin overall - a little rye in here but otherwise kind of empty. Not bad, just not interesting.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Beautiful hazy amber with a red-orange hue and a thick, lasting beige head that leaves sheets and sheets of lace all the way down the glass. Initial aroma is actually a little stinky, then more bready grain and lightly spicy citrus. The palate showcases the spiciness of rye malt perhaps better than any other rye beer I’ve had; really lovely malt profile, smooth, with just the faintest smokiness, and a light kiss of hops. Paired perfectly with our spicy dinner of pho.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
65 cl bottle @ Timo A.
Pours clear dark copper color with a small head. Quite weird on the nose, some dark berries, rye, caramel malts, mild grain and faint hops. Flavor is fruity and there’s a lot of carbonation, gooseberries, malts, rye, some toffee and more malts. Very lively carbonated palate, feels quite light considering the abv. Somewhat unique. Lacks something essential though.
