COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
They should be good men; their affairs as righteous: But all hoods make not monks. Beneath a deep blanket of snow there is a cereal grain that can survive the harsh winters and acidic soils - RYE. Like a draped hood over a monk, it is the righteousness inside that shines.

Can... Poured dark, reddish with an off-white head. Sweet, slightly bittering tones from the rye. Honey, malt sweetness, and decent punch of earthy, peppery hops for balance. Very clean and a worty finish.

Steeeve (326) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 30, 2011
Clear reddish gold with a half inch head that retains very nicely. Aromas of rye, caramel, toast, orange zest, and earthy hops. Taste is neither sweet nor bitter. Like a lot of rye beers, this is pretty well balanced. The sweet rye, honey, and earthy notes are finished nicely by a mild citrus hop kick. Dry finish, not necessarily bitter like an IPA. Solid, semi-light mouthfeel. Not a huge Sixpoint fan, but I love rye beers and 16 oz cans. Well done.

Pours deep amber into a Shaker. Off-white micro head with excellent retention recedes leaving spider lacing to coat surface. Caramel, pumpernickel and resin aromas. Medium bodied with sweet cinnamon roll upfront turning to pumpernickel before the last rye finish.

dmac (3896) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUN 18, 2011
Served from the new 16oz cans that lists the ABV as only 6.3%. At first glance it appeared as if this beer poured a deep chocolate brown but upon holding it up to the light I can see that is actually more of clear super deep reddish/orange. The head was of average sized but very foamy and of an off white that dropped the appearance down from a 4 to a 3. Aroma has a good dose of rye bread up front followed by chocolate, spiceyness and citrus hops. Fuller bodied with foamy mouthfeel and average carbonation with a good strong lingering aftertaste. Flavor of rye, chocolate, grass, slightly wet leather, a hint of metal. I really like this.

A - The beer pours an almost clear rich copper-brown color with a big covering of frothy tannish head. The head fades very slowly down leaving behind lots of thick lace. S - Aroma is a mix of rye and piney hops. There is also just a bit of light fruit in the background. T - Starts off with a mix of rye flavor and some piney hops and a touch of bitterness. Through the middle, the hop flavor and bitterness grow alongside a bit of deeper bread flavor. The finish is a mix of rye, hop, and a touch of fruits that linger nicely. M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. The beer feels really smooth and not at all watery. Even with the rich flavors it does not feel overly heavy or thick. The finish has a bit of a dry kick which is nice. D - Very drinkable. Really great balance of hop and rye flavor from start to end. The flavors are nice and rich and the beer stays fairly light.

Draft. Pours a robust brown color with a mediocre, slightly off-white head. The flavor is outstanding. The rye has a definite presence, shining through a flavorful array of resinous and citric hops. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Overall: I was really impressed with this beer. I really enjoy a good rye beer, and this is one of them. The hops go perfectly with the grains to provide a bold but very balanced flavor.
