3.5/5  rDev -9.8%

Bottled on 1/3/12

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a nonic.

A: Pours a dark amber colour. 2 fingers of white pillowy head. Good retention and lacing.

S: Alot of bready rye notes dominate. Some floral hops mixed in as well.

T: Some floral hop notes up front and then comes some big rye flavor. Finish is very dry with some lingering rye notes.

M: Lively carbonation and a slightly heavy body. Very dry almost leathery feel.

Overall this a good beer. Nice flavor and aroma. Mouthfeel was a little to leathery for my tastes.
