2.33/5 rDev -39.5%
Pours a rich brown.
Small slightly lacy head.It did not last very long.
Smells like a brown ale home brew. Lots of yeast. both in smell and tast.
Tastes like a brown ale but a bit sour / tart. Mouthfeel was medium to thin.
Overall I was disappointed with this $10 beer.
I've made better homebrew on my first attempt.

Dark brown with a red hue and a nice thick white head. The appearance had me excited to try this. The scent is sour, smells infected. Uh oh. First taste... Yep, this is infected. Nice and malty, almost no rye taste at all, and very tart. Dark fruit flavor. The carbonation is spot on with a great medium creamy body. Overall, a pretty bad beer that was probably infected but they decided to bottle and sell anyway.

Served on tap at Kraftwork.
Pours a murky dark chocolate/chestnut brown color with yellowish beige hues when held to a light source. Completely opaque with a half finger off white head that quickly dissipates leaving no lacing.
Earthy yet sweet malt aroma with hints of toffee, caramel, milk chocolate, hazelnut and rye. Slightly leathery nose with some bready yeast. Also slightly solvent with subtle hints if dark fruit.
On the lighter end of medium bodied with soft carbonation and earthy hops up front that are countered by a sweet yet leathery malt backbone. Hints if caramel, chocolate and toffee along with some dark fruit, mostly date fig prune and raisin. There is also a slight peppery spice character and a noticeable alcohol sweetness. The ABV is masked where heat is concerned but I'm still picking up some alcohol sweetness. Not much rye and it tastes more like a tame barleywine.

Brown ruby copper. Islands and a ring. Toffee head.
Prune, dark chocolate, watered down ash, burnt flavors.
Burnt raisin, faint coffee, light chocolate.
Bitter, almost dry.
One of my least favorite Bruery beers. For the ABV Im surprised this is so watery and ashy. Not a fan of the flavors much either, this needs another element to be added.

Cloudy, cola-brown color with minimal head and lacing. Aromas of stewed dark fruits and cherry, together with cinnamon, root beer, baking spices, caramel and bitter chocolate. On the palate, the initial flavor is burnt and toasted malt, followed by hints of chocolate and caramel. Medium to light in body, with good carbonation.

750 mL bottle poured into a tulip.
So far I've been unimpressed by the Bruery beers I've tried, but I generally like Rye beers, which baseless illformed opinion will win out??? The beer pours a nice looking rubyish mahogany, relatively clear and a thick, dense light tan head with plenty of lacing and ok retention. So far so good. Aroma is certainly rye forward, with associated spiciness and mild caramel and malt sweetness. However, the sweet and spicy don't blend well and the dry bready rye aroma dominates. As this beer hits the front and back of the palate, its like drinking two different beers. In the front it's sweeter and malty, some Belgian yeast, in general rather pleasant. As it moves further back the tongue and finishes it has a potent, strong dry bready rye and spice character that isn't very well balanced with the sweet. Well, looks like my general apathy of the Bruery's beers has summoned the strength to defeat my affinity for rye beers, as this comes off as a challenging to drink, unbalanced notion of a good idea.

Very nice color and head. Nice smell of spice. Taste however put me off a bit as it was a tad sour and acidic. It also felt like the beer was a bit over carbonated and did not have the ryeness come through that i was hoping for. I will admit this is a bit unfair of a review on my part because I am not much of a sour fan, but I typically have never had a rye with this much bite

Bottle fo frizzeee, that says something right there
A- Explosion. Poured a little bit into a tall glass and it was 98% head after an average pour
S- Lots of dak fruits and boatloads of rye. Those two arent working well together
T- Same as the smell. Tastes like BSDA with rye in it. Getting better as it warms but nothing great
M- Really smooth/light. Drinkable at least
O- Extra Meh. Woul drink again for free but wouldnt purchase
