A bit of a dud. I love rye malt but this doesn't seem to be very interesting overall. Pour is quite nice; dark murky brown, a slight cloudiness in the body, thin beige head. The nose is earthy, slight floral and herbal hop notes, light spice notes and a toasty bread malt. Lighter body than I expected, kind of watery, no carbonation. Slight sweetness on the finish with mild bitterness, quite earthy and i find notes of spice, leather, herbal and grassy hops.

AssKicker (677) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - JUN 30, 2017
Couleur rouge intense qui flirte avec le brun, bonne limpidité, c’est beau ! Dommage que la mousse beige ne tienne pas davantage. Au nez on a un mélange de caramel et de toffee, c’est chouette. Malgré la présence de 8 malts différents, ce n’est pas archi violent en bouche. Il y a un mélange de caramel, de toffee et de torréfié, mais tout en douceur. Ça manque peut être un peu de corps, mais ça reste agréable... tout du moins au début, après c’est vite lassant. Les houblons ne se ressentent pas vraiment, l’amertume est légère, la carbo est juste comme il faut. Sympa, sans plus.
