look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

The body appears a deep reddish-brown, topped with a very thick, creamy, and sticky white head. Rich rye spiciness floating in the aroma; cola-like; caramel sweetness to the smell. Big, rye bread flavor; cookie dough sweetness; well-tempered hop bitterness throughout the taste experience. Heavy body; big sugary feel without being cloying.

This is an amazingly heady malt bomb, packed with rye spiciness, superb malt sweetness, and well-tempered hop bitterness and bite. From the incredible sticky, brittle sheets of lacing on the glass to the evil malt sweetness and sugary feel spiked with a delicious rye pep in the flavor and the nearly decadent pleasure of the heavy, rich mouthfeel, this is one winner of a beer. An exceptional find and even better drinking experience.
