COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Summer is over, but cheer up pretty people, itís time for the newest installment in our Fade to Black Series. This Rye Ale boasts a deep dark brown body with an off white head. This dark brew envelopes your nose with aromas of dark coffee, maple wood and hints of dark agave nectar. The flavor is an intense evolution that starts off with nut bread flowing into molasses followed by a taste of licorice. This lands on spicy rye notes all before being washed away by earthy hop, leaving behind a slight black pepper sensation. So put away the bathing suit, pop a bottle of this black beauty and watch summer fade way.

Bottle. Sweet earthy roasted malt aroma. Black brown with a moderate tan head. Sweet molasses and roasty/ashy malt and cola flavor - not really getting any rye. Medium body, soft carbonation. Nice, and easy to drink.

[Tap] Draught at a Left Hand tap takeover. Very dark brown pour with a small amount of light brown head. Nose is of spicy rye grain, charred malts and noticeable anise. Taste profile includes roasted malts, cocoa, mild coffee and rye spice. Dry and peppery finish. Nice balance and good looking lacing on the side of the glass. Good stuff.

kidmartinek (4999) - austin, Texas, USA - APR 6, 2014
Black with a foamy white head. Aroma is bitter toasted malt and oak. Flavor taste a bit like carbdoard. Yeah Iíve had it! Otherwise tastes like a milk stout. Has that lactose sweetness and thickness to the body.

Nsanders (1136) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Tap at Pizza Luce. Deep brown with no head. Aromas of smokey wood, rye, maple syrup and a little burnt sugar. Taste is quite sweet with a woody dryness. Heavier body with a syrupy feel and fine carbonation.

12oz bottle pours with a deep dark body that supports a thin mocha colored head (man I love this beer series). The aroma offers up chocolate, a thin dark roasted malt note and other faint clouds of aroma I canít really make out. The taste starts smooth and creamy and it brings up notes of malt sweetened black licorice, chocolate bar and a thin ribbon of dark roasted malts. Thereís a dollop of resiny hops and a rye bread twang that surface about midway and ride into the finish. Darn tasty brew.
