Meaning "rye bread" in Danish, we took our inspiration for this beer from the Danes’ staple dark, whole-grain rye bread. Brewed with three types of rye malt, this robust brown ale showcases the earthy, spicy character of the grain, complemented by bready, nutty barley malts and a hint of roast. Loosely based on the Scandinavian Christmas beer or "Julebryg" tradition, this beer is perfect for the colder weather of winter, although it will be available year-round (because who doesn’t love a dark beer now and again, regardless of weather?) And don’t worry about the name, we can’t pronounce it either! But we do have a video of us and a lot of others trying our best at it.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 7, 2010
Very dark brown pour with moderate tan head. Nose is sweet roasted grain, and spicy rye notes. The flavors are dominated by the spicy rye-bread notes, along with roasted grain sweetness, like chocolate, and brown sugar. Quite tasty and spicy. Paired well with the assorted cheese board I consumed with it at Tribes Alehouse in Mokena.

On tap at the Bruery! Pours reddish amber brown with a small tan head. The aroma is dark fruits and grain. The flavor is surprisingly sweet with hints of dark fruit, molasses, and fresh harvested grain. It has a somewhat dry finish. Nice one.

obguthr (6108) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAR 5, 2010
Brown sugar and rye nose. Shimmering brown, thick yellow frothy head. Lots of rye, with a little brown sugar. Alcohol is fairly evident. Not my cup of tea, or mug of beer, as it were.

Hank1980 (966) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAR 5, 2010
On tap. Appearance was a nice ruby brown with a small tan head. Aroma is toasty, lightly hoppy, and rye. Sweet malt is also present. Taste is also on the sweet side, with plenty of rye and hop bitterness. Some light fruit notes as well. Very nice. Mouth was medium with soft carbonation and a bitter finish. Overall, a decent brew.

750ml bottle. Pours very dark brown with lighter brown/amber highlights and an immense light tan head that eventually settles into a persistent spotted disc of foam. The aroma is chewy malty with a very slight acidity - almost vegetal (like hint of tomato and/or carrot). There are also notes of caramel and peppery phenols. The flavor is very malty - bready/toasty/toffee up front with brown sugar and dark malt character growing towards the back. There is some rye flavor evident in there, and it blends masterfully with hints of chocolate, roasted nuts, maple, and stronger flavors of rum cake. The finish is spicy and dry with touches of alcohol, rye, chocolate, and spices (caraway, white pepper). The mouthfeel is luxuriously carbonated - very richly bubbled with a creamy and seemingly light body that turns viscous and ropey as you swish it and release the carbon dioxide. Overall, a very pleasant and interesting beer.

Pours dark brown color with tan head. Toasted malt and coffee aroma with some spiciness from the rye. Flavors of roasted malts, coffee, molasses and rye. Medium to full body with moderate carbonation.

ChainGangGuy (4874) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - MAR 1, 2010
Appearance: Issues forth an obscured, medium brown body with a tall, expansive, airy, off-white head. Smell: Sweet, spicy nose smelling of toasted bread (crunchy crusts and all), caramel, brown sugar, and a bit of cocoa, with a spicy component of rye boosted by the Belgian yeast and a lightly tart fruitiness. Taste: Baked dark bread with some notable toasty tones to it and brushed with a layer of sweet dark caramel sauce, cocoa powder, and dark brown sugar. Rather light touch of roast. Taste of tart, juicy hard-pitted fruits along with raisins. Zesty zip of rye grain throughout. Earthy, additionally spicy yeast character. Drying, fruity, lightly spicy finish. Mouthfeel: In the vicinity of medium-bodied. Well carbonated. Drinkability: A pleasant, flavorful, engaging beer that drinks with ease. Go on, give it a try!

Zymurgeist2 (2082) - Redwood City, California, USA - FEB 28, 2010
Hazy brownish-red with a beige head. Head is big, but thin and full of carbonation. Aroma is full of rye and malt. Mouthfeel is very carbonated and sweet malt with the rye. Rye is pronounced on the front palate and follows through with caramel and bread-like flavors. An interest roasted/smoke on the finish.

drfabulous (7399) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - FEB 28, 2010
Big ass carbonation pour. First taste is rye, malt, and some spices. Warms nice with some really winter flavors taking over. This is a by the fire beer. It just needs to get that carbonation under control. Send some to Lost Abbey.
