Poured from a 120z bottle. This beer pours with very little head, some lacing around the edges. The beer itself is a brilliant red-amber color, lots of caramel malt perhaps? The smell of this beer is outrageously good, the rye is nice and peppery smelling and there is a solid malty backbone here.

The rye also comes through in the taste, there is pepper right up front which fades fairly quickly to a nice bready-malt core. The rye comes back a bit on the after-taste with a spicy pepper note that really lingers. The moutfhfeel here is also great, it really fills the entire palate. A nice, rye forward example of the style.

This is one hell of a tasty beer! Definitely worth purchasing again.
