look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured aggressively from a growler to a pint glass.

A
Dark color with a full 2 finger head. Lots of carbonation in the lacing.

S
Earthy, straw aroma

T
Slaps the back of my mouth with a strong bite, which must be the rye. Not a lot of experience with rye beers. This one leaves an aftertaste on the tongue and back of the mouth. Not bad for a strong beer but caught me off guard.

O
A strong, aggressive taste. I will need to explore the rye beers more. Will look forward to finishing this growler to see if this style grows on me.
