4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma: Pleasant smell of rye and hobs. Appearance: Not the prettiest of beers, cloudy. Taste: A clear taste of rye goes through and is rounded by a strong hobs aroma, this is however kept in check by the heavy alcohol. Palate: Full, sticky, average, bitter. Overall: Very good, but the hobby quality of the Boogoop is missing, the rye flavor is definitely a plus.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from November 2010 purchased @ the brewpub, cellared @ 54 degrees for one year, two weeks. Pours a hazy deep red with loosely bubbled head and great retention. Aroma was blisteringly hoppy when fresh but has mellowed since, allowing the intensely spicy rye bread character to emerge along with notes of bleu cheese, deep caramel sweetness, and balanced spiciness from the hops. As it warms, notes of thyme, rosemary, and carroway emerge. Taste is rye bread, caramel candy, spice, minor green apple, resin, cedar. Body is full, oily/slick, low low carbonation, sweet but balanced finish. Overall, this is incredibly complex and really benefits from aging.
