Bottle shared. Rich cereals, cocoa, lots of funky spice, gingerbread, earthy finish. Spicy rye all the way, nicely done even though I wouldn’t drink pints of it.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks Tom L. Very dark brown with a quickly dissolving beige head. Rye, caraway, cocoa and some caramel aroma, sweet, yet a little dry, caramel and cocoa taste. Flattish, full-bodied, rye bit towards the end and lots of caramel.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle bought at Geers. Big flakes can be seen in the bottle. Was expecting it to be a gusher, and yes it is. Green apples, spices, sour infected, horrible. Second Bruery bottle I have that is infected, seems like they have a quality control issue? Could've been a good beer probably.

Bread and more sour dough bread. Thick and chewed oats. Great if you like that characteristic..I kinda like it. But one novena kind..I really liked the pecan walnut finish.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2015 Bottle: Thanks, Jeff. Tawny copper & ruby body, semi-clear with a beige head that settles quickly to a foamy collar. Aroma of gum, light rye spice, & lots of slightly sweet, somewhat stale caramel candy notes. Flavor is a bit old tasting... Almost getting notes of cardboard? Light caramel malt, toffee, hint of rye, some mild date sweetness, toast, & gummy yeast. Perhaps a touch of clove, too. Medium bodied. Kind of "meh" all around. Didn’t care much for this one.
