12 oz Bottle at the Hyatt regency at Ohare The ale poured a very dark amber with an off white head. There was modest lacing. The aroma was mixed with caramel malts , pine resin. The taste was complex with sweetness and citrus at the same time. The medium body beer had average carbonation. The finish was dry with a lingering bitter aftertaste.

Two brothers has a lot of average beers. This isn’t one of them. Great taste initially and very smooth finish. Malty and hoppy yet not overpowering. Nice beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
a: dark orange amber, nearly opaque, hazy, clearly unfiltered, tan head
s: spicy, slightly fruity with dominant malt aroma
f: spicy, malty sweet, slightly fruity flavor with a bit of a rye bite, malt dominates
m: creamy, medium body, lightly carbonated, clean sweet finish
o: I think spicy, malty when I drink this beer. It is sweet and overbalanced to the malty side but none-the-less complex and quite nice. My bottle is in date and it seems fresh. Thanks Two Brothers!

On-tap this pours a dark amber color with a slight brown foamy head. Good aroma of toasted rye. Has a strong, bitter flavor and full of rye. Lots of bold, bitter flavors and very well made.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A- Pours a deep mahogany color with a very small, off white head.
S- Smells faintly of roasted malt.
T- Lots of rye, hints of raisin and plum, finishes bitter with grapefruit hop notes.
M- Semi thick with medium/high carbonation that verges on too much.
D- This was a good rye beer. Not one that I think I would revisit but the rye flavors are very pronounced and it was worth a try.
