3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at the brewery.
A: Cloudy mahogany color, creme head.
N: Toffee, bark, toast, ample amount of nuttiness - almonds and walnuts in particular, peppercorn, and rye bread.
T: Sweeter and maltier side of things; lightly bitter, hint spicy.
M: Medium body, soft carbonation, no alcohol presence.
O: Solid - the rye is a smart addition here and this is my favorite of the year-rounds.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cola brown pour. Aroma is malty madness. Flavours more down the amber ale territory (not a fave style of mine). Rye is quite minimal sadly. Overall, nice but not much farmhouse character.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very carbonated upon opening. Not my cup of tea…. Muddy and murky dark brown with 3-4 fingers of foamy head. Does not quickly fade. Nose smells like a homebrew, muddled and rustic malt notes with some dark fruit and plum. Rye malt is really showing big in here with some oxidized and bready notes. Medium light bodied with an earthy finish.

4oz draft at GBD. Poured a thin, semi-translucent, but still dark, almost black, perhaps like a mahogany color. Aroma was light rye, some light dark cherries, coffee notes. Some funky notes, fruity character comes through a bit. Pretty refreshing and easy to drink.
