3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Medium brown pour with a small tan head. Aroma of malts, smoke, bourbon, licorice. The rye is a little too strong in the flavor for my tastes, brings a woody, smoky character in that doesn’t really mesh with the mild chocolate/licorice in the background. Dry finish, medium body,. Not a big fan.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Untapped Festival.
The beer pours a dark brown color with a small head. The aroma is a nice mix of rye and chocolate malt. The flavor follows suit. I get a lot of chocolate and roasted malt, but the rye notes also really come through. There is also a nice spice character to the flavor. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

On tap, Bearden Beer Market. Brown, thin beige head. Faint aroma of 2x4’s, rye bread or toast, and caramel. Taste is oddly fruity, then woody, then a dry, crisp finish. I like this stuff...

Dark bodied and served with a small tan lace. A very modest aroma of cacao and licorice. Disappointing. Taste is okay, but still moderate in roasted and licorice malts. (On tap at The Top)
