On tap at the brewery. Chestnut pour with minimal head. Spicy aroma with very apparent rye and a touch of malty sweetness. The flavor is every bit as spicy as the aroma lets on. A nice bit to this one. Plenty of rye (and as it turned out, this is almost 100% rye), spicy well matched hops and roasty note as well. Just a touch of sweetness to balance out the spice. Interesting does not quite cover it. Semi-dry light-medium body. A very interesting and enjoyable concept. I’d make on of these myself. But I guess you really need to like your rye. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 21, 2008

Sampled at the brewery. Pours a light brownish amber with a thin white head. Spicy rye and roasty grain aroma. Smooth slightly malty taste, nice body. Still retains some of the roasted grain elements and the rye, though not as hoppy as I thought it would be. The grains seem to be highlighted more, which is nice. Very refreshing.
