Unfiltered, uncarbonated @ the Brewery courtesty of Aaron the head brewer, when my friend Matt and I stopped in midweek. Pretty tasty and damn smooth, supremely drinkable.

Tap at Blind Tiger. Amber pour with an off-white-ish head. Citrus, woody, light vanilla. I’m suprised to see it’s almost 7.5% abv. Nice, not hugely balanced, but worth having.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2007 On tap at Kettle, NYC. Pour is a cloudy amber with a normal off white head. Aroma is initially rye, then malt and finally hops. Taste is pretty much the same, in the same progression. Overall a nice beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured a hazy, reddish amber color with a medium sized, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of rye, citrus fruits, floral hops, nuts, and toffee malts. Taste of much of the same, rye, toffee, nuts, with faint alcohol, but a bit of metallic hops in the finish. Chewy mouthfeel.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 13, 2006 This place makes solid ales. This one pours a clearish deep brown with amber on the edges, tan head. Aroma is almost slightly chocolatey, hint of cinnamon. Bit of a toffeeish rye malt flavor. Seedy, bready with a balancing bitter finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught in Brooklyn. Burnt orange body with a tight creamy head. Aroma of fresh spicy rye, bread crusts, caramel, and peppery hops. Grainy, rye bread flavor with some malty, cinnamon character and a firm bitter, lightly sweet finish. Tons of rye character, which I really enjoy.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Westside brewing. Poured a hazy reddish color with a thick off white head. Toasted malts were hinted in the aroma along with rye and caramel. There was a candy flavor in the taste with some corn. Finish was too bitter but otherwise a good brew.
