This is one complex, and confounding beer. Everything is in competition and there is no one definitive style or statement. Solid brown color. Tastes of rye, malt, garden hose, cherry wood, cabbage, no hops, bubble gum, white pepper, and plums. Difficult to wrap around. Not amazing, but worth a try, and gets bonus points for creativity.

Color of a brown crayon, impenetratable! Heaviest pint I have ever raised. Rye and oatmeal nose. Massive 17 or 18 malts and cereals in this one make it hearty and filling. I found it way over the top, yet something everyone should get a chance to try.
