COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Meaning "rye bread" in Danish, we took our inspiration for this beer from the Danes’ staple dark, whole-grain rye bread. Brewed with three types of rye malt, this robust brown ale showcases the earthy, spicy character of the grain, complemented by bready, nutty barley malts and a hint of roast. Loosely based on the Scandinavian Christmas beer or "Julebryg" tradition, this beer is perfect for the colder weather of winter, although it will be available year-round (because who doesn’t love a dark beer now and again, regardless of weather?) And don’t worry about the name, we can’t pronounce it either! But we do have a video of us and a lot of others trying our best at it.

Nice head, unique color, purplish plum. Based on the aroma, I would’be guessed a much higher ABV than 8%. Creamy texture, rye flavor, enjoyable beer.

Interesting brew, on tap at TRIPEL in Marina Del Rey, lots of spices and malty tones, pretty good.

From tap. Pours a nice dark red. Aroma is sweet berries. Candied fruits and sugars, with rye undertones for taste.

Rated on 3-05-2010 at Fort Wayne, IN Gathering. This beer pours a medium sized very fizzy, bubbly ivory head that mostly diminishes, hazy reddish brown body, visible carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The Aroma is malty, rye and spicy. The Taste is sweet, malty, lots of rye, fruity, and spice. The Palate is tingly and this beer is medium bodied. In conclusion, this beer is all about the rye and lots of it at that. I came away with this beer being a bit too much rye tasting to the point of almost being over-the-top rye tasting.

From a bottle. Very metallic note on the nose, files through on the palate. Too boozy.

Pour is copper with a white head. Aroma is of spice, caramel, dried fruits, and candi sugar. Flavor is a bit more on the spicy side with warming alcohol on the finish. Lots of caramel malts and dried fruits in the body. Medium bodied.

Reviewed from notes. The appearance is a dark brown colored body with a half finger of a somewhat white foamy head that dies immediately. The smell gets somewhat yeasty, yet acts like a Brown Ale by showcasing some malty/nutty sweetness. The taste is sweet yet somewhat complex with a decent backing by the malts and a raison-like quality coming through, It has a very malt-like sweet aftertaste. I’m actually not sure how I feel about that just yet; no finish. On the palate, she sits about a medium and comes across fairly sessionable. I could be wrong but this brew has the feel of a Brown Ale - no worries ’cause I love Brown Ales, so yeah, kinda smooth. Overall, this is a rye beer? Is that what this is supposed to be? Ok, fair enough, good for the style, but there’s more than enough complexities that say this just might be more than any old Rye Beer anyone might be lookin’ for.

Split a bottle. Poured a ruby brown color with a slightly off-white head, medium sized. Aroma was grains, some sweetness - caramel notes, nutty and a touch of spicy rye. Flavor was some grains, earthy notes. Sweetness remains.
