12 ounce bottle courtesy of Secret Santa Winter 10 (thetomG). Thanks! Pours a clear copper color with a large frothy offwhite head. Average head retention and lacing. Aroma of nuts with caramel, dark fruits and an herbal finish. The taste is caramel, nutty notes, a bit of smoke, bitter malts with some faint roastiness, fruity rye notes and some bitter hops in the finish. Medium bodied. Nice beer.

Sammy (12491) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2009
A rye not a mild, recent bottle. Refreshin with that rye edge. Moderately pleasant aroma, arising from a medium yellow body topped by good amount of bubbled head. Lace follows through. Very drinkable, refreshing. Warms the body on a cold night.Average mouthfeel, a little edgy but smooth.Drying aftertaste.
