Bottle. Pours a deep reddish brown with a slight but long lasting off white head. Aroma of chocolate, toasted caramel, and nuts. Nice bready rye flavor that is a good match for the malt. Interesting and long finish.

Clear red brown color with thin off white lacing. Great notes of chocolate and rye on the nose. The rye and chocolate come through in an interesting way on the palate making this a beer that would kick ass with some stew. Football, Fall, and this Beer.

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2014 Some chocolate in the aroma. Quite dark. Smoky also. This is a pretty interesting beer. Sticky, yet not cloying. It’s a bit different but no in the same manner as other rye beers I’ve had. Okay, not great. I type that sentence a lot about rye beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Deep brown body with a tan head, rapidly diminishing. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, caramel with a hint of rye bread. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture, moderate carbonation. A sweet porter that is thin in the mouth as compared to richer porters like Founders. Still, tastes of malt and chocolate and coffee with a bit of rye twang.
