Draft @ princeton triumph. Dark brown pour with a little tan head. Smells like I’m sniffing rye bread, flavor follows. Initially I wasn’t sure what to think, but its a great rye beer, what i put any other up to.

GABF 2007. This smelled and tasted of straight up caraway seed, like it was concentrated and liquified. It’s not bad, but I’d like some more balance of flavors (like some more characteristic maltiness, although there is some chocolate lurking underneath). Don’t really know what to make of this.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Philly location. Pours a deeper hazy amber with a medium creamy off white head that left some lacing. Aroma of rye bread, grainy malt sweetness, a touch of some fruitiness. Flavor was rye bread, dry, some malty sweetness but mostly dry, spicy and very drinkable. Well done.
