Poured from a 22oz bottle into a mug glass.

A: The beer is a deep coppery brown color, with a large off-white head that fades very slowly and leaves a thick but spotty lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains caramelized rye malts, some spice, some fruit and some hops.

T: The taste starts out with a mild burst of sourness that it quickly followed by some sweet flavors of caramel, rye spice and some fruit. Then some breadiness comes in from a hearty but not too heavy malt character. The hops presence is significant but not strong and brings some balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, this is a solid beer to drink for a while.

Pours a deep reddish-brown with ruby edges. Small cream colored head which doesn't stick around. Decent lacing. No noticeable haze but the color is dark enough that I can't see through it all the way.

Some piney hop aromas. Slightly earthiness and some spiciness.

Spicy flavor to start. Pepper, pine and smoke. Crisp malt. Caramel and leather.

Crisp mouth feel, somewhat thin bodied. Noticeable carbonation.

Overall, some interesting flavors but it didn't seem to blend very well. Each was a distinct piece rather than melding together into a whole.

22 Oz Bomber poured a nice dark brown with a creamy two finger head. Good head retention and excellent lacing.

Smell of malt up front, with a little alcohol, not an overpowering aroma. Some of the others compare it to a brown ale, but it has a little more spice than that. Some pepper.

Taste is very mild, with an earthy overtone. I cannot go as far as some to say I taste the rye, but it is a very pleasant flavor.

Mouthfeel is full bodied to me, with a little chewiness, good carbonation, very smooth and satisfying finish.

Overall, I like this, it has more to offer spice wise than the Hazelnut Brown, but is different in its own right. I think the use of quality ingredients is what sets this apart. I would go again on this one.
