3.65/5  rDev -15.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a fine and fluffy light brown head over a clear dark brown mahogeny liquid. Smells strongly of rye, some clean alcohol, oranges, grassy hops.

Tastes chocolate with rough rye edge and dry hazelnut. Hop grassy is amplified due to the strong rye. Hop flavor is piney resin with a dash of lemon. Mineral bite, strong sharp carbonation, drying astringent in the mouth, medium-light viscosity, and lingering rye grassy bitterness. A bit of lacing on the inside of the glass and a thin layer of head hung to the bottom. Really strong rye...likely entered into the wrong category at GABF. If you want to know what rye tastes like, this is a beer that will show you. Judged here by me on BA as a Rye Brown Ale.

Dark and spicy yet remarkably creamy and smooth. I had a pint in their taproom and had to pick up a 6 pack while I was there.

Resin, pine, rye, chocolate, dank cannabis, and catty hops form the aroma. Notes of caramel malt, toasted nuts, and mint add complexity. Strange combo! Flavor reveals roasted malt and peppery rye at the base, providing bitterness throughout. Notes of chocolate offer respite, along with pine and mint. There's a muted hint of citrus, which is overwhelmed by bitterness in the finish. One of the more unique offerings I've had, of memory. A little too much rye and bitterness for my palate, but it's worth trying! Nutty, toasted malt lingers in the aftertaste.
