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.

"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.

kathouse (1015) - Nevada, USA - MAY 7, 2014
Very dark brown with a thick tan head. Citrus hop aroma is counter-balanced by the sharp rye malt. Carbonation was fine but mouthfeel was lighter than I expected. Robust hop flavor and bitterness with a dry roast malt. Malt is also not as prominent but well balanced. Finish has a lingering spice.

BBB63 (6037) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - APR 22, 2014
Bottle sent to me by Brian Pramov himself and served in the new River North snifter he sent me as well: Pours a very deep brown, near opaque with a huge frothy beige head. Fine roast, char, pumpernickel bread, walnut, light dank and herbal bitterness along with a touch of butterscotch... even some impeding horse blanket and sherry like oxidation. Ashy finish and some biting bitterness still left. Very interesting to say the least, reminds me of my Blackened Rye Stout homebrew but better.

Pours a solid black with a foamy tan head and lacing. The aroma has lots of hoppy resin and pine along with a bit of toasty malt and rye. The flavor is dark malts up front with a resin backbone and great spicy rye finish over a medium-heavy body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
