medium/dark brown with tan head. nose of crystal malt with a touch of spiciness from the rye and a touch of alcohol. low bitterness before the above mentioned crystal malt flavor with touches of rye. low alcohol flavor, but a touch of warmth and a very dry finish. a well fermented beer and a very interesting and nice brew

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.

Shitbrown color like sludge but a nice Brady bread and dough nose with winter spices. Chewy body that injects flavors of cherries and figs in the sides of the mouth. There’s a ciderlike alcohol sourness at end.

Sienna brown, light head. Doughy yeast nose with hints of malt. Cherry, malt, dates in the taste. Quite carbonated. A pinch of fermented fruit aftertaste. Pleasant.

750 ml bottle pour. Pours a dark reddish brown with a temporary cola like head. First things first, I went into this one accepting the risk, because i can’t stand rye bread. That being said, I’m still a little surprised I went for a beer that directly translates to it, but I gotta try them all eventually. Plus these guys have done so little wrong for me in the past. Slightly sour malty aroma up front with almost a wine grape background. Grainy, malty flavor with the obvious rye. A little bit of a sour kick as well, which is nice. Has a bit of a dark fruit flavor bite up front as well, but mellows out well in the finish. I was pleasantly suprised that I ended up liking this beer a lot more than expected. It’s one of those beers for me that just kept getting better as it went. Well hidden alcohol. I enjoyed this.

Bottle. Brown beer. Aroma is sweet and herbal. Taste is very malty, with some rye and sweet spices. Bit of a letdown, considering the Bruery standards.

Cloudy, slightly deep orange tan with a small head. Molasses, some leathery, sour fruit notes, some spice. Mainly sweet taste, some sourness, some very light spiciness. More than medium body, some oiliness, alcohol somewhat present. Quite long finish. Good.
