4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2012 Draft @ abraxas. Amber and bright. Stable head. Intense aroma that is bark, tree truck, soil, and minced walnuts. Juicy palate! Fruity rye berry kernel sweetness. Smoke, toasted cedar wood, and campfire notes. Meaty. One of the better rye beers I’ve had in a while. Solid and so nice!

12 oz bottle from sherm1016...thanks. Pours reddish with tan head. Malty nose with some hops....has a very nice blend of hops with malt to smooth out the edge of the hops without losing the ’bite’ of the hops....nice and smooth....very tasty

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is a cloudy brown with a large white head. Aroma is a spicy hop with a deffinate rye malt. Flavor is more big rye with a minor hop. Finish leaves a nice rye bready malt on the tounge. SN really went for the rye aspect on this one and they really hit it, just wish there were more hops. Also great artwork on the label.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft pint at Anthony’s, Harrisburg. Clear golden-copper with a lasting disc of foam above. Nose is mild citrus, floral and spicy caramel. Flavor is caramel, toast, citrus and lightly sour florals. Light-medium body is to the dry side and an easy drinker. Good brew, but I seem to have missed the rye in this one.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured into a snifter.
4.0 A: Nearly clear dark orange amber color. Two fingers of creamy off-white head. Retention is average with a good bit of lacing left.
3.5 S: Plenty of earthy spicy rye. Hints of smoke and toasted malt. Hops are floral and earthy. Pleasant and quite interesting.
3.5 T: Again, lots of earthy spicy rye. Mild bitterness. Herbal and earthy hop flavor. Again I’m picking up a light smokiness and a stronger toastiness.
3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lightly creamy and smooth.
3.5 D: Tasty beer. I’m a big fan of rye and I like the smokiness that this beer has. It’s a good combination.
