3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark chestnut pour with a 3-4 finger, creamy yellow-beige head. Aroma is loaded with fruity stone fruit and berry notes, dry roasted nuts and spicy hops. Flavor is nutty stone fruity up front followed by husky grain, roast, dark chocolate, burnt sugar and bready notes, pine, spicy hops and sharp fruity esters to the finish. Medium body, fairly dry throughout and lightly carbonated. Pretty good overall, lots of stuff going on here, but it doesn’t really fit together that well.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 mL bottle from Tasty Beverage Co., Raleigh, NC. Dark brown pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of rye, caramel, light chocolate, hints of smoke, and wood. Somewhat peppery taste with dark fruit flavors, cocoa, and dark roasted rye. Finishes dry and gives the impression of a higher alcohol beer. Nicely done.

75 cl bottle @ Timo A.
Pours clear dark copper color with a medium sized head, quite lively. Ashy, toffee and hay on the nose, caramel, maybe some faint rye. Caramel malt flavor, plums, some bread notes, some chocolate on the aftertaste. A bit too strong carbonation, some old hop feel to it also.

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.
