Bottle. Pours a hazy and rather dark brown with a fairly small off-white head. Nose is quite hoppy, actually, with some fairly strong grain notes in there. Taste is strongly grainy from the rye, yet remains remarkably clean. Good brew. Fatehunter (2615) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Poured one finger of head on a hazy brown colored body.
The aroma was a dull barnyard smell. Not bad, but not really great either.
The taste had a solid rye spice to it with moderate bitterness. Pretty good.
The texture was crisp with moderate carbonation.
An enjoyable drink. AshtonMcCobb (6916) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 5, 2015
On keg at the Bow Bar.
Appearance - chestnut with some orange chinks. Nice head.
Nose - brown bread, light smoke. A hint of dried fruit.
Taste - big dried fruit cake thing. Lovely smoky backdrop.
Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a balanced dry finish.
Overall - reminds me of Schlenkerla Fastenbier. Delicious. Stuu666 (14843) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 15, 2015

On tap. Clear dark copper with a creamy tan head. Nice rye bread, citrus, and roasted grain aroma and taste with a chocolate finish and a nice smooth creamy palate.

Single bottle purchased from Kensington Wine Market in Calgary, AB on 12/24/2102. Colour: Dark brown with healthy stark white creamy head. Nose: Caramel malt, peanut butter, grainy hops, touch of dark mustard. Taste: Medium-light sweet, medium-light bitter, medium-light sour. Pretty standard mix of hops and malt through to mid palate, but then a zesty and crisp rye grain takes grip late to the finish. A puff of curious sour apple on the dying end as well. pdx77 (1717) - Oregon, USA - DEC 29, 2012
On draught at Rogue Brewery on the Bay. A surprise. Reminiscent of a rauschbier but with sweet bubblegum notes. Butters (4176) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Sampled with kristen at Wintergreen. Pours near clear dark brown with mohogany highlights and fair tan foam head. Lightly spicy earthy tones. Very mellow caramel, and slight sagey hop bitterness. The rye also has a sweetness that is very nice. Really delicious actually.
