Cerveja com amargor extremamente elevado com leve percepo do lcool. O aroma simples e podia ser melhor trabalhado, mas o paladar compensa.

Dandm (112) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 12, 2016
Very old bottle, maybe 2011. Cloudy dark brown with thick sediment. Caramel, chocolate, coffee, resin, alcohol. Heavy bitter and medium sweet. Low carbonation, probably some lost in cellaring. Long, spicy and bitter finish. Reminds me of mud cake. This is a big, big beer.

commonmac (1112) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 24, 2016
Tap on a snifter glass at World of Beer St. Paul. Color is a copper variation with a pleasant white head and assertive lacing. Nose is mostly malt and caramel with a little bit of hip presence. Taste has a healthy bitterness but offset with a malty, cereal chewy characteristic that works as a nice balance. Feels like a bready, spicy beer with enough hoppy qualities to keep it from an uncalled unbalanced amber offering. Definitely feels heavier than other Beat Republic efforts but still enjoyable. This one is a good representation of a rye.

Poured from the bomber, its a chunky brown with orange highlights. Taste is sweet boozy hops, some citrus, Im thinking rye (cause I dont really recognize the flavor), not so dry at the end, nice change of pace beer.

12 oz bottle shared by ebone1988. The pour is a dark brown color with a thinner white head that falls to a thick collar. The aroma is interesting. There is a lot of citrus to it while maintaining a light spiciness. The hops arent bright, but rather relaxed and offering light influences. The rye adds a hint of spice, but doesnt do a whole lot. The flavor is way bigger on the rye. Lots of spicy grain and a resounding bitterness. Its really interesting. The hops just offer a heavy bitter and the rye dominates. Its almost one dimensional. There is a maltiness as well that Im not digging. The mouth feel is lighter and decently carbed with a lingeringly spicy rye finish. Its dry as fuck. Its interesting.

Bottle shared with koleminer20. For the book. Aroma is rye, earthy hops, malt, rye heavy. Appearance is red, copper, off white/light tan head, hazy. Taste is rye, grainy, earthy hops, dirt. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light carbonation, dirt grainy aftertaste. Overall, this one is pretty good.

MonsterMagnet (1302) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 20, 2016
Bottle, pours amber with an off white head. Lots of rye in the nose (like!), with a weedy and grassy hops. Taste has a lot of spicy rye, caramel. Medium sweet with a good complementing bitterness, but Im missing hops really. I suppose its an old bottle, but as so often on US bottles theres no trace of a bottling or best before date anywhere. I still like the rye though...
