Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - JAN 12, 2010
Draft at Woody’s. Pours dark brown with a thick foamy tan head. Aroma of bready and roast malts with some floral hops and earthiness. Taste is sweet with caramel and has a little bit of hops and dark chocolate. The rye is not overpowering by any means but is a good balance. Medium body with a good creamy texture.

phaleslu (7382) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 21, 2009
Draft at the brewery, part of a sampler. This and Brandon’s Hop Blaster were my favorites on my visit to Yazoo, and hard to pick a winner of the two. Aroma of chocolate malts, rye, grains, coffee, and toast. Well-balanced palate of all of those elements, with really nice rye and malt flavors. Medium bodied, rich, and smooth, with a dry finish.

Pours deep mahogany with a large frothy head. The aroma has light cocoa, roasty malt and cream. Medium / light body with very sharp carbonation. The flavor starts a bit spicy along with cocoa, some sourness and overall dryness. The finish is bit on the water side. Okay beer.
