On tap in a starndard pint glass.
Served too cold to get the optimum aroma and taste.
A: The head disapated almost immediately into a thin beige ring around the side of the glass. The beer is a dark copper and almost opaque.
S: A very mild aroma of a sweet molassas.
M: A medium body, and very smooth with very little carbonation and a clean finish.
T: Begins with a rye malt and little spice with some molassas sweetness. The second part has some mild floral hops complimented by the caraway.
O: Overall, this is very much a rye beer. The molassas sweetness is an very nice addition to the rye. Also, the caraway really compliments the mild hops in this beer. It is a very interesting blend of flavors.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours reddish black with a decent size off brown head. Smells of sweet grain, a tad of fruitiness. Tastes of watery sugar, kinda like an adjunct, but with a little more flavor. Beer is light bodied, drinkable, lightly carbonated. Overall an above average beer.

This has an almost sherry like appearance as the color is clean light and cognac brown with only a collar of fizzy film.
The nose holds a strong alcohol scent that needs to disappated before it subsides to a rye, barley and chocolate malt.
The flavor has a lot of diversity with a black licorice, pumpernickle, rye and barley malt an then a spicy peppercorn.
The feel is a bit abrasive with a spiky carbonation in the throat but it's not too off putting.
I found this to be a different and interesting beer that is a good example of a Rye.
