3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750mL thanks to EricE. Pours a full hazed deep brune with sheen, dense, yellowish foam. Thick, sheety lacing. Nose is a bit vegetal, tomato soup, celery stalk. Taste is heavy malt cereal, moving to lemon tea and finishing very whole wheat crackery. Palate is still a bit vegetal, mildly tart, freezer burn flavors. Hmm. As it warms, some chocolate comes through with mild banana esters. Improving to near dunkelweizen. Still odd.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample from firkin at the 6th Annual Rogue Firkin Fest at Green Dragon. Hazy dark amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of dark fruit, toffee and hops. Medium-bodied with flavors of caramel malt, ripe fruit and herbal hops. The finish is fruity with a rye and hops aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2012 Tap at the Cafe Upstairs from the brewery. Deep amber-ruddy pour with a thin white head. The nose is loaded with rye character and a bit of spicy yeast. Some toasted malt and a bit of caramel but it’s quite dry on the palate. A little bit of light fruitiness that adds a bit of complexity. Toasted grain. Lovely.
