3.4/5  rDev -9.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Poured from bottle to an imperial pint. Bottled on 11/5/2012.

A: Slightly cloudy amber with moderate carbonation and a nice, foamy head with a hint of copper.

S: Lightly roasted malts dominate with some cherry notes.

T: Strong malt backbone up front with a very earthy rye flavor following up. Peat moss and cherry notes with a spicy and dry finish.

M: Light-to-medium bodied, a bit watery in the middle. The rye flash is a little harsh, followed by a dry, tart cherry finish.

O: Definitely a different take on the marzen style. I prefer those that stick to the roots of the style and explore the depths of malt character. This is more of a rye beer than a marzen to me. The flavor is a bit harsh and doesn't blend particularly well with the malt and cherry.
