COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Congratulations to Brian Pramov & Bryan Keas of Denver, CO, for winning our Batch #1000 homebrew competition! Their intensely hoppy, dark rye ale caught the judges’ attention and was the unanimous choice for best in show.

hopscotch (9555) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Bottle... Pours dark brown with a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head. Good retention. The nose is roasty and offers spicy grains accompanied by herbal and perfumey notes. Medium-bodied and uber creamy with soft carbonation. Bittersweet, balanced flavor and finish. Bottle courtesy of biggsbowler!

tmoreau (2571) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - NOV 5, 2014
Shared 2013 750 ml. bottle, poured to snifters showing a black/brown hue, with tan head foam, and dots & dashes of lacing. The nose was roasted, floral, with a hint of soapiness, light spice, and a touch of resin & citrus astringency. Light to medium bodied, with soft carbonation, the texture was a little thin, although the mouthfeel offered some mellow creaminess, hop bitterness was moderate, roasted, earthy, and subtly dry, and the alcohol warmed a bit. A decent brew.

GG (2326) - NorCal, California, USA - OCT 13, 2014
750ml bottle - Aroma - anise, coffee beans, citrus and some spicy herbal notes Appearance - dark mocha brown, nearly black body, 3-finger creamy tan head, long retention, above average lacing Mouthfeel - medium carbonation, medium/full bodied, light burn Flavor - pine needles, roasted malts, more anise, spicy rye quite noticeable, almost carrying a burnt hop pellet bitterness to it. Overall - another good beer from The Bruery but gets tagged with a high price that really doesn’t support jive with me. Gets a point knocked off for the price tag.

monk191 (1092) - California, USA - SEP 24, 2014
A very good black ipa. Pours a deep, thick black with a tan head. Smells of hops, marshmallow, vanilla and chocolate-covered strawberries. Taste is extremely thick and sweet upfront, like an ice cream float. Some hops kick in afterwards, balancing nicely. Slightly bitter finish. Quite nice. Had in the bottle.

slowrunner77 (6090) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 6, 2014
"This dark brown ale is in the upper tier of black iPas. Not quite in the elite few, but knocking on the door. Aroma is a blast of rye, citrus, and dark roasted malts. Body is smooth, medium bodies. Flavor very rye centric but not to a fault. Adequately bitter. Similar to Black Racer. Good stuff."

Bottle at home with friends. Pour is dark brown with a light red tint and frothy tan head - good lacing. Earthy, lightly grassy, cocoa, chocolate, brown sugar, and vanilla aroma. Taste is grassy, light weed, grapefruit, cocoa, chocolate, vanilla, leather, and resin with a medium bitter finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Not bad.

Bottle @ Stephen’s house. Pours a deep brown appearance with a dark brown head. Minty / sprucey, cookie, chocolate, fairly roasty, spicy hoppy nose. Slightly thin body. Fairly bitter. Dark chocolate, roasty malty. Slight caramel. Pretty decent.
