4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Amber brew with thin head that fades fast. Smells of Rye and caramel. Can taste the malty sweetness but the Rye takes over the taste with a nice pepper spice that makes this brew very good. This one has a thickness that coats the toungue but doesn’t leave a syrup finish, rather leaves the lingering taste of malts and spice. Excellent brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Lighlty hazy in the glass, dark golden in color and with a small, dense off-white to light beige head. It’s lightly rye-peppery on the nose, with pine cones and a resiny touch. Some pale malts too, but it’s mostly on the hoppy side. The flavor is on the hoppy, bitter side, with grapefruit peel and pine cones. Some peppery maltyness in the back. Full body, nice carbonation. Lasting hoppy finish. Not bad this one. 150622

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured clear, amber in color, nice foamy off white head and some spotty lacing. Aroma of booze, grain and malts. Taste is also boozy, sweet from malts and certainly grainy from rye. Very nice quite enjoyable, while strong it is not hard to drink.

On tap at Bushwallers in Frederick. Copper color. Creamy, rich, bready flavors. It was served a bit warm and tastes of dirty tap lines--it wasn’t great but I’m blaming the bar until I try again.
