22oz bottle pours with a clear deep amber body supporting a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up mildly roasted malts, spicy melanoidin malts and a modest smooth smokiness. The taste has similar notes as noted in the nose with sort of spicy melanoidin malts, spicy rye bread and some smooth smokiness. Pretty nice stuff but the flavors seem to be brighter than needed. bulldogops (2490) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 23, 2013
8oz sample at Beer Rev purely out of my growing interest in rye grain bevvys. This was a deep coppery brown coloured pour with a mild tan foam that faded to a ring. Nose was teddy graham cookies, chocolate, toffee, and vegetable oil. Mild alcohol warmth and carbonation (well disguised at 6.6%) Taste is lagery, a mild peppery smokiness from the rye grain, mild toffee and caramel malt sweetness, but a load of noble hop grassiness. Finishes smooth, and super light - not at all what was expected of the big dark brew in front of me. Worth revisiting. LilBeerDoctor (3904) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a thin light tan head. Aroma of smoked meats, smoke, sweet malt, light fruits. Flavor of light smoke, spicy rye malt, and sweet malt, apple skins. Sort of an odd combination of flavors but it’s decent. Palate is light, a bit sweet.

This was a shared tasting with Strykzone on Facebook Chat as we share so many beers together this way. . Poured a cloudy opaque amber-brown with a moderate beige head and good lacing. Nose is rye, wood, and smoke, with a little plum. Light to medium body. Flavor is rye forward but there is a lot of complexity here with an earthy background, smoke, ripe fruit, and a lot of graininess. Chocolate finally appears. The finish is quite dry wit floral hops and low bitterness. This is a complex beer and at first the unusual combination of flavors was a bit of a surprise, but as I got closer to the end it became quite enjoyable as the fruit and chocolate pulled even with the rye and a little spice appears.. 60minuteman (1681) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 19, 2014
A light brown appearance with tan two finger head. Smell is hop, malt, yeast, rye, a general earthiness. Taste is subdued and clever. Slight hop approach, counteracted by the grains. Slightly toasted. burleybrew (75) - - JUL 18, 2014
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. Voodoo (658) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 13, 2015
Pours a cola colored brown with an off white head which lingers......aroma of spicy rye notes, raisins, caramel......taste is a quite sharp rye spiciness, medium mouthfeel, plum notes finishing with grainy aftertaste. fiammanghilla (972) - Genova, ITALY - MAR 14, 2015
