Proof again that The Bruery are magic makers. On draft at the Brass Tap in Wesley Chapel, FL. Pours amber-red with an off-white head. Nose is earth, honey, slight booze, and brown sugar. Flavor is the same with nice sweet finish. Made from rye? Very interesting.

Reddish, nice brownish beige head. Very bready, toasty aroma, with some very sweet notes. Flavor is very sweet, with a lot of caramel and toffee, plus rye. Very thick and rich. As it warms, a lot of raisin and prune notes emerge. definitely a sipper.

The aroma is very toasted with caramel, bread, and hops. The appearance is red brown with a medium sized head. The taste is like the aroma with a bitter finish. The palate is a bit thin but OK. Overall this is a good beer.

solid beer, has got the sweet caramel maltiness. not too hoppy but makes up for the malt. the end is a little weak but this is a great find.

Tap at Churchkey. Pours a hazy light brown with a thin head that dissipates quickly. No lace. Aroma is subtle; not too much of anything save for some malt, toast, light caramel. Taste is very light and refreshing. Slight spice, rye bread, light citrus. Easy to drink. Very simple.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Murky river-water pour with a 3-finger eggshell head that left chunky lacing. Aroma is of dark fruit, caramel, brown sugar, spice and rye. Flavor shows tons of raisin, honey, biscuity yeast, molasses, and faint rye. Thick enough to stick but not syrupy. Pretty good brew.
