3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Urban Family. Pours a watery caramel brown. Aroma is sweet malts and just a hint of hops. Taste is rich and complex: oatmeal, toffee, dark chocolate, tangy pineapple hops, lightly roasted coffee. The rye shows itself on the back in the dry and hoppy finish. I can’t remember this much flavor from such a thin beer. I was expecting a Saison, so this was a surprising treat.

Bottle. Strange beer that starts out like a regular saison (grassy, citrusy notes) but ends with some somewhat disturbing cholate notes.

Type: 16-oz. draft
Glass: Joseph James pint glass
From: Naked City Pizza in Paradise (Las Vegas,), Nev.
Purchased: March 25, 2016
Consumed: March 25, 2016
Misc.: Got the last bit of a keg; NOTE: Lost all my notes for this one, going with what I remember and wrote on Untappd
Heard good things about this place, but nothing really intrigued me on the tap list when I got there. Pizza was really good. Originally looked at the draft list, but the bartender told me that the drafts were all kicked. Then went with an Evil Twin Saison, which apparently was out as well. The lady told me that there might be a little bit left of this beer (probably because I ordered a Saison the first time) and she was right. I might have received one of the last two or three cups. NOTE: Read #6 Saison on the board, but this appears to have been a #6 Rye Beer according to Beer Advocate.
Poured an amber, clear color with 1-to-2 fingers of off-white head when I got it. Good amount of lacing on the sides of the glass. Good amount of retention on the way down. (Sight - 4.00)
Smelled red apple, plum, dark fruits, light burnt toffee and earthy grass. (Smell - 4.00)
Taste was just as good, mainly getting red apple, plum, purple grape and light toffee. Some wintry notes - faint molasses and some rye spiciness - coming in as well. (Taste - 4.00)
Medium body. Oily texture. Soft carbonation. Long finish. (Feel - 4.00)
Really wish I would not have deleted my notes, as I enjoyed this one. Would have it again for sure. (Overall - 4.00)
