3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Hayduke. This is very brown and opaque. Lots of carbonation floats up. A nice creamy beige head. The aroma is something I am having a difficult time identifying. Rye and chocolate is the best I can do. Tons of rye in the flavor. Lots of malts, too, but tons of rye. The rye brings spice and a lot of it. Too much rye. There are hops in here but I am having a hard time finding them The rye is almost cloying. I like rye in a beer but . . . Throw some pastrami in with this and you have something.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This was a 22 oz bottle. Strykzone (Dave) had one in Wood River, Illinois and I had mine. We opened together and discussed on Facebook Chat. Poured a rich dark amber with a good sized beige head and very thick lacing rings. Medium plus in body with a smooth yet lively mouthfeel. The flavor just screams rye with earthiness, citrus, and floral hops. There is a hint of bitterness in the finish but again the rye spice is dominant. Generally an excellent rye beer with just a hair too much rye.
