Pours a nice amber color with medium sized off-white head. Aroma of yeast and grand. Flavor of grain, grass and some roasted malts. Decent beer. joebudzjoe (676) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Draft @ Monster B’s. Pours brown with nice tight lacing throughout the pint. Overall, this is a dull rye ale with none of the tight kick of typical rye ales. Some notes of caramel and toffee, but ultimately muddy flavored. Chuckaduck (674) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - DEC 24, 2010
Pours a greenish amber; don’t remember much about the head. The aroma is malty and warm. Taste is roasty, nutty, chocolate, and a bit smokey. This is a nice "sit around the fire on a cool winter’s night" beer. TonyDiUlio (664) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 7, 2010
Tasted this beer while on Beer Quest 2010 with the guys. This was beer number 80. Pour was medium amber. Lacing was good. Aroma was a little malty. Flavor is rye bread. Medium body. Some smokey flavor and a strange aftertaste. bluemooner (657) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - FEB 7, 2010
Pours a rich brownish-amber with a thin, frothy, off-white head. Aroma is caramel malts and some spices. Taste is malty with hints of rye, caramel, raisins, spices, and some breadiness. Medium bodied with low to medium carbonation. Pretty good overall; essentially a brown ale.

Malty aroma that smells like bread. Pours a rich brown color that has a tinge of red. Flavors of rye, raisins, spices, and roasted malts. Nice crisp mouth feel with a bitter finish. Nice spiced beer. jimmack34 (640) - Lancaster, Ohio, USA - NOV 29, 2008
Bottle. Pours a rich amber with a generous fluffy white head. Smells malty with some grassy hops. Tastes very aggressive for a malt, a sharp and semi spicy malt presence with a balancing hop presence. Very good . tons of flavor and very drinkable. podey (638) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Bottle. Aromas of bread and malt and hay. Taste is of malt and rye with a bit of a metallic finish.
