3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted on 7/4/13 from a capped 750mL bottle purchased at Belmont Station. Pours clear cola brown with an average off-white head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is a nice combination of spicy yeast, spicy rye, and spicy noble hops, with just a hint of some caramel malt and some tropical fruit aroma. The flavor is more of the same, focused on the multiple spicy components with a nice caramel malt backbone. The body is just less than medium with lively, stinging carbonation, and a long, generally spicy finish.
It pours brown with a brown head. The head is full and head retention is excellent. There are a lot of aroma notes in balance. Chocolate, caramel, rye, and wood are all well represented. There are some background notes of cherry and low citrus notes. There is a bit of dank in the background notes as well. The rye flavors are the most prominent with chocolate, caramel and wood given complex flavor development. The are some cherry notes and a hint of citrus in the background. It is moderately full in the body and kind of creamy. The finish is smooth and semi dry. Overall, this is a wonderful rye beer with a good combination of flavors to support the overall presentation. thorongil2 (3565) - , Ontario, CANADA - JAN 14, 2018
(Tap) clear, bright dark orange amber colour with a small, brown head; aroma of soy sauce, spice; balanced flavour with a long, light bitter finish Foffern (2044) - Bodø, NORWAY - DEC 18, 2017
On tap at Baileys Taproom, Portland, Oregon. Pours a clear mahogany colour. A little careful aroma of roasted malt, nuts, chocolate and subtle dried fruit. Fruity flavour at first with sweet malt, bread, caramel, fenols and ends dry with grassy hops and wood. Has a slick mouth feel, medium body and a light to medium bitterness. Lot of things is going on in this beer. Tasteful anyway. Suttree (6537) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 1, 2017
Bottle from McSrooges. Man, how cool is it that I can get this brewery in Knoxville? This beer is a mess. A sloppy, delicious mess. Unlike a lot of beers that a lot of different flavors this one lets every note can of pop up and play a role in the overall experience. Cherry, rye, maple, pepper, maybe some oak, as well. Nice stuff! melush (4957) - SPAIN - AUG 1, 2017

UPDATED: NOV 16, 2017 LEDER & SPICE GOTT ERHALT’S!!! A LOVER !!! :OOOO. Die dicke Jolle wartet im Keller.....auch hier werde ich berichten ;)... Fass. 15cl/3,25. BEER TEMPLE Amsterdam. Jetzt :)...Es duftet spülspicy, sieht wundervoll aus, mit seiner rötlichen Bräune und der cremigen Haube. Das Mouthfeel ist sanft und der Roggen hinterlässt nicht kratzig, aber durchaus dominant holzig, seine Spuren. Ein Hauch Waldhonig ist ständiger Begleiter und laubiger Brown Hop Ale Flair sowieso. Saison??!!?? Relativ wenig ;)....0,75l/11,15€. DeMolen Shop. Holland.
