Pours out to a thin white head and medium brown color. Crystal clear. Aroma is toasty malt, and a hint of brown sugar, cocoa and maple. Flavor is sweet grain oriented with nice toasty and nutty (pecans?) notes a nice carbonic bite at the end. Mouthfeel is light and slightly sticky. This is a unique brew that I really enjoy.

Pours a clear dark orange-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of sweet malt, rye, toast, biscuit, and nutty aromas. Taste is much the same with malt and rye flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of toasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with lots of solid grain forward aromas and flavors.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Bottled November 9th 2013.

A: Pours a clear dark ruby brown with an off white head. Not very much visible carbonation. Head dissipates to a thin film in a minute or so leaving a few spots of lacing.

S: Bit of a sweet aroma with a bready aspect to it. Hints of dark fruit and also a moderate yeastiness. Light chocolate as it warms.

T: Solid flavor on this one. The chocolate malts come through nicely and add depth. Carmel sweetness is controlled and doesnt overpower. Great malt backbone.

M: Medium body with moderate carbonation. Has a bit of a creamy aspect to it which is pleasant. Isnt overly sticky on the finish.

Overall I'm impressed with this one however am very biased toward rye beers. Comes through as a full flavored beer. Worth a try, just wish it came as a stand alone offer.
