From a bottle poured a brown color with a lot of head. Light toasted malty flavor with a lingering finish. Reimer96 (1778) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 26, 2013
Pours a clear brown with a reddish tinge and a very small brown ring. Aroma of spicy rye, caramel and a bit of smoke. Taste is spicy rye, slight oke, caramel and a bit of bitterness on the finish. Nice rye ale but could use a bigger punch of everything. koppertone (63) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 24, 2013
Minimal head, pours a nice color of brown/red. Moderate carbonation. Smells of vanilla and lemon/orange. Tastes roasted, a tad nutty with a fair bit of malt. Slightly bitter. No hops. I wouldn’t say this particularly stands out or that I have any reason to get it again, but if offered it is decent and is certainly likable. DrinkEmUpJones (1069) - Georgia, USA - MAY 23, 2013
Clear red brown color with thin off white lacing. Mild caramel nose. Creamy palate with fairly dry finish. Darker than expected but delicious. Bov (13221) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAY 23, 2013

- pours a very dark brown beer with a persistent beige foam; the aroma is toasted with light metallic tones; earthy and grainy as well; a good malt backbone, pretty tasty, pretty dry and earthy grassy finish; toasted and with again some metallic tones
Pours dark brown with a small head.
Nose shows bready, grainy malt and some soft caramel.
Some sweet malt and a grainy character as flavours with little else to make things interesting.
Could use a lighter body.
Pretty boring. WoodersonMB (27) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 22, 2013
Dark fruits, bread and touch of smoke on the nose. Sweet wine and malts with a bitter finish. Nice beer.

Subtle toasty and fruity aromas. Clear bronze with a lasting, off-white head. Dry, earthy, and a little smokey, with hints of chalky candy. Light, smooth, and cushy, and finishes with some lingering woody flavors. cards04 (2917) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 21, 2013
Pours as thick as a loaf of rye bead. Awesome. Deep burnt caramel colour. Nice lacing. Aromas of smoke and bread. Very similar flavours. Nice thick and smooth palate. Very smooth and drinkable. Nice. Drake (14078) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Draft at Whole Foods Market Charlottesville. Dumb name. Pours a clear copper color with nearly no head. Aroma of dry malts and rye. The taste is herbal notes, rye, dry crackery malts and a jolly rancher-like fruit note. Medium bodied.
