Bottle at Zoo Brew. Pours a clear deep amber with a light brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a lot of rye and a smoked meat note with a bit of sweetness underlying. Flavor has rye and smoked throughout with a touch of bitterness in the finish. slowrunner77 (13206) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 18, 2014
"A very spicy dry rye brew, almost overly so. Muddled kinda ugly pour. Beyond that there was some non descript hops and muddled malts, but as much as I like rye beer I wasn’t too impressed with this one. It was ok."

650 ml. Lightly cloudy dark brown with a lasting film of bubbles. Nose is dark toasted bread, chocolate and molasses. Tastes of dark toast, sourish molasses, spicy rye and touches of smoke and citrus. Medium body has medium carbonation and is to the sweet side. Dogbrick (14326) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Sample at Daily Growler Powell. Cloudy brownish-amber color with a thin light beige head that recedes quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of smoked malt, fruit and rye. Medium body with flavors of grainy malt, spicy rye and earthy hops. The finish is subtly smoky with a rye malt aftertaste. Decent overall. sulawang (1209) - - SEP 9, 2014
Visual: Pours nutty root beer brown with smallish foamy head, a very thin layer of micro retention, some decent lacing, some varied speed streams.
Nose: light brown sugar malts, smells like a brune (lvl-4)-pungency
Attack: very biting crisp, yeasty sourness
Mid-palate: background hopped sourness, (lvl-5)-sweetness, (MAIN) brown sugar malts, caramel, bready, yeasty
Finish: hint of quick spiciness,, smooth-crisp mouthfeel malty off-dry soft hopped bitter finish.
Summary: Very drinkable especially while still cold. Overall good body, mouthfeel, and flavour. Forgettable but not regrettable.

Pint at the Rogue pub in Newport. Not many Roggenbiers here in the states! Nice earthy flavors marry well w/subtle hopping creating a very quaffable experience. A well brewed beer. FatPhil (17334) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 15, 2014

Sweet aroma, marshmallow and that fake nougat. Later celeriac. Even later white wine. Kinda savoury taste. Some odd herbal aspects refer back to the celeriac. Full smooth palate, soft carbonation. A bit of a mixed up mess. Sweet roasted marshmallow, rough burnt edge.
(Bottle, 0.65 l, courtesy of FatPhil, 20140715) The beer poured dark brown and clear. Its head was quite large, white and it lasted long. Aroma had malts, molasses and caramelly sweetness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, sugary sweetness, molasses, herbalness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet, malty and bitter. Way too sweet. daniele (9888) - ITALY - JUL 3, 2014
