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.

Bottle. Pours reddish brown with a fluffy off white head. The aroma is picy, caramel and yeast. Some berries as well. The flavour is dark fruity with some mollasses, raisins and caramel. Highly carbonated. Thanks christianscheffel for sharing!

sleestak (226) - Williamston, Michigan, USA - FEB 20, 2010
Draft. Pours the color of oxidized viking blood with a quickly diminishing off-white head. Aroma is liquid bread with earthy hops and caramel sweetness. Dark fruit sweetness dominates the flavor, with only the rye tang and the hop spiciness rescuing this beer from being a cloying mess. Warm alcohol on the finish. Light carbonation and a medium body. Underwhelming, especially considering the draft cost as much as my dinner.

TheAlum (6193) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - FEB 19, 2010
12 oz draft at Tribes (Mokena, IL). Pours a slightly murky bit of rusted brown, a small decent offwhite head that dies to a film, laces ok. Aromas are a touch of subtle rye malts mellowed out, some bitter florals, caramel malt sweetness, a touch of cakiness. Initial is caramel, rye, bitter floral hops that take some edge off of the swweter malt body. Touches of tobacco, nut, cocoa, and more rye slide into focus. The hops are firm yet give way, providing decent balance on a naturally sweet slanted beer. Medium body, thicker than I expected with a seemingly potent boozy/throat feel. Not bad, glad I just got a draft. Finish is warm, bitter, with lingering maltiness having the final say

DeputyAndy (636) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 19, 2010
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2013 pours a dark brown. very little nose. tons of head. very woody taste..almost bitter but still balanced. smooth finish. rerate 1/10/13. A lot more nose to it. Taste is full of plums and figs. Really nice hefty mouthfeel to the body. Oily yet substantial, really compliments the dark fruitiness, the dryness, and the carbonation.

750ml - Aroma of toasted malts, rye, chewy caramel malts and pine hops. Flavor is crisp toasty malts and rye. There is a wet sour mash of caramel malts too. Palate is sticky and tart. Different and a good winter brew.

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.

Suttree (5482) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 15, 2010
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.
