This is a fine rye ale from an otherwise mediocre brew pub. Rye notes and caraway were minimally noticable in the aroma, and the dark brown brew had a slight, pure white head, which dissapated quickly. Minimal lacing left behind. Flavor was very malty with unusual leathery characteristic. Bitterness was modertate, not really taking on a character of its own. Well balanced with smooth creaminess.
