Tap at BT. Black Rye IPA. Pours a nice deep dark nearing pitch black with a good frothy head- nice lace. Aroma is big spicy rye malts, mixed with some slight roast, mostly clean though- and tons of raw aggressive fresh pine-like hops, some citrus, and mint. Flavor has a bold assertive raw spicy rye that really makes the malt and the hops pop out- fresh citrus, pine, resin and dank weed. Side by side to the Narconaut, this one wins hands down- and the rye is what sets it aside- it gives the beer almost a fullness of body without making it sweet and still keeps it refreshing and easy to drink. I loved it.

750mL swingtop growler shared by yourefragile. Served in a Hill Farmstead wine glass. Pours black with a good tan head and some nice lacing on the way down. Thin collar throughout. The nose carries a good dosing of roast plus a really nice bouquet of pine hops with just a touch of citrus. Flavor has a nice roasty character with a bit of a dry maltiness in the background. Nice hops throughout. Finishes bitter and dry; just right. Really good brew.

Tap at the brewery. Muddy, dark brown. Dense, lasting, beige head. Nose has scorched citrus, grapefruit particularly. Light roast malts. Comes across a little coffee like and cocoa-ish. Taste is a nice mix of roast and citric bitterness. Medium body. Foamy mouthfeel. Nice twang of bitterness. Theres soft cocoa sweetness running throughout. More light bitterness on the close.

On tap at the source. Pours a solid dark brown, black color with a decent sized off white head that persists forever. Smells of garlic and green onion with a nice hit of caramel and light chocolate along with a nice earthy spicy wheat aroma. The flavor follows the aroma quite well. sweet caramel and bready spicy malt accentuated by hints of chocolate and countered by onion and garlic hops. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a creamy grainy mouthfeel. I normally dont go for a wheat beer, but I enjoyed the hell out of this one.

~ 12 oz tulip glass draft at the Blind Tiger in New York City. Pour is dark brown, black with an ever so slight ruby twinge. Nice one inch off white head falls slowly with pretty lacing. Aroma is the rye up front, followed close behind with roast malt and pine hops. Really fresh clean and balance nose. Taste follows suit, rye, roasted malt and pine hops all nicely blended and well balanced. Palate is medium bodied, aftertaste lingers with the nice soft roastiness. Nice one.
