Poured from a refrigerated 12 ounce bottle. Pours a darker copper with a beige head of foam. The aroma is heavily indicative of a spiced Christmas beer. Not much in the way of hop presence. This bottle is likely a shadow of what it once was in the hop department. Kinda wish I would have had it several months ago.

Pours a clear amber/caramel with a medium off white head. Aromas very caramely with mild earthy/rye spice. Flavor follows suit...caramely sweet and doughy but earthy bitterness too. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is earthy/rye and bitter/dry.

tap at 1702 Tucson, AZ-pours bright clear orange with a small soapy eggshel head. nose is bright citrus and rye. flavors exhibit the rye more than the hops. this is kind of wierd and not really all that well put together. ok body with a long rye dry finish. a intersting brew but lacks much hops. Sierra Nevada Ruthless Rye is way better if you ask me. Maybe i should have had more samples of this brew.

solid beer all the way worth a nice balance between the hops and malts. the bitterness packs a small punch with just enough room left over for noticeable malts.

Brown gold pour. no head. Nice level of pepper, honey and hops on the nose. Taste is very chewy up front. The rye dominates and hops balance out the middle. Caramel at the finish.
