Very good. Some good spice notes and some real heft to it. I can’t claim roggenbier expertise but after this beer would like to see more. spilledpint (352) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - OCT 24, 2010
Notes from Thursday, October 03, 2010
On tap at Avery tap room.
Ar: Not what I was expecting. A hefe-like banana nose with a bit of cocoa and some spice. Surprising but very nice.
Ap: Deep red-black pour, small cinnamon head.
T: A bit awkward. Sweetness present and pleasant, but the finish is somewhat awkward and somewhat astringent.
P: Creamy medium body, soft yet lively carbonation.
O: Interesting offering, well worth sampling if you’re at the tap house. Not at all what I was expecting, though it was my first Roggenbier. bigbish (713) - California, USA - OCT 20, 2010
pours dark like a porter, tan head. Flavor is intense roasted coffee, by far the dominant flavor. Burnt undertones. Not too heavy. A decent beer. onceblind (10125) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 17, 2010
On tap @ Avery Brewery. Looks like a porter; deep brown / almost black, with a light tan creamy head. But the smell gives off more of a "Smoked" stye. Aromas of burnt wood, roasted malts, and brown sugar. Taste is subtly malty, with accompanying flavors of liquid smoke and sweet rye. Odd, but somewhat tasty. potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 17, 2010
Draught at Avery. Black with nice tan head. Lots of roasted coffee in aroma, hints of chocolate malt. Big roasty taste, but very drinkable almost light bodied. Pretty good.

Flavors of burnt carmel, rye and toffee with a smooth dry lingering rye finish. Nikiel (879) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 9, 2010
Mild aroma. Pours dark with a light head. Very creamy texture with a slightly roasty flavor headed by the slightly bitter flavor of rye. Very well adjusted and one of my favorites of the day. notalush (5897) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - SEP 25, 2010
Pint at Avery - pours a dark ruby/brown, with a soapy tan head - medium bodied and fairly creamy - mostly dry, with a bit of roast and dry cocoa character - what little sweetness there is brings with it flavors of raisin - tangy rye character is complimented by the hefe yeast, which also adds a light banana quality to the flavor - a bit of pumpernickel and light smokiness - overall, a great, sessionable rye beer - nice.

draft. deep black body. chewy, full-bodied, resinous and coating. black patent malt and medium+ roast up front followed by fully-rounded mid-palate (heavy malt sugar, medium- sweetness), moderately hoppy finish with toasted rye bread crust and mild spice. chewy, overly thick, but altogether not a bad release.
