3.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma is def with funky munich malts, and some very light chocolate notes. Honey and caramel are in there as well. Very aromatic. Color is a very dark hue, nice carbonation. Rye is mostly present in the taste. Taste is a bit discombobulated, but different, they didn’t all mesh well. Aftertaste is spicy with some caramel. Pretty forgettable beer overall, from a brewery that was so highly acclaimed at GABF. This brewery pretty much sucks to me.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours clear mahogany with a large, frothy light tan head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is light fresh apple and pear esters, faint apricot notes with pine, citrus, and floral hops, background notes of spicy rye and cracker malt. Flavor is medium to moderate hops, medium bitterness with the spicy rye accentuating this a bit, lightly sweet supporting malt with faint fruity esters late, and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sweet up front, which is kinda odd. Usually a beer hits you with hops, then a sweet part, then a sweet finish, but this one is more sweetish, the a subtle hop bite, and a very dry finish. Nice mix of caramel and molasses and rye, and grassy hops.
