Boutip (5065) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 29, 2012
Bottle: Poured a dark black color porter with a dark foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma consists of spicy rye notes with light roasted malt and some black chocolate notes. Taste is also dominated by spicy rye notes with some dry roasted m alt notes with light black chocolate notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. Well brewed with rye contributing some interesting complexity.

dwyerpg (4786) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 14, 2012
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.

DrinkEmUpJones (1069) - Georgia, USA - APR 7, 2012
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.

peteinSD (1429) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 22, 2012
Bottle from Sean - thanks! Pours dark but slightly transparent held to the light with only a ring of tan foam for a head. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, slight ash, and a bit of an underlying gum note which I do not care for. Taste is minimal roast, slight chocolate, light and generic sweet malt, and some more of the gum off-flavor. There is some rye spice in the finish. Mouthfeel is watery. I was really excited about this beer and it was a let down all the way around.

Draft. Pours near black with a beige head. Light roasted malty aroma with a light sweetness. The flavor has light roasted malts, some light rye malts, a hint of sweetness, and light floral hops. Decent.
