To be fair this bottle is going on 3 years old and it wasnt good. Sour and just too old.

I think you could walk on this head its so dense. An intriguing blend of flavors...especially with the rye. Hints of bitter chocolate and toffee balance the rye, while the smoky finish completes the ensemble.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer pours the typical dunkel hazy yellow-brown color. The aroma is slightly sour with some banana? notes. A bit difficult to describe. Light(er) and refreshing with a sweet/ bitterness in the finish. It is good, but slightly smokey. Unique.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Good brew. It had minimal lacing due to the extreme age (almost 2 years out of date), the brew itself tasted kinda wheaty, with a nice dark maltiness to it. Not too overpowering in any direction. Would drink more if available to the public.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer was very interesting and different. Had some dark fruit flavors, and a graham cracker maltiness, full of cooked grains and some caramel and toffee. I would say the 2nd best from this offering.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Hazy unfiltered brown pour. Nice lacing. Slight wheat taste but is overpowered nicely by a caramel kick. Probably one of the better offerings from this collection.
