3.06/5  rDev -20.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Undated bottle at 45 degrees into snifter
Aroma of fermentation, somewhat like rotting fruit
Head large (5 cm), light brown, frothy, rapidly diminishing to 4 mm ring and 2 mm layer
Lacing poor – few islands of small bubbles, some tails from ring as level drops
Body med brown, hazy
Flavor very much like a subdued rye bread; no hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate light to medium, creamy, soft carbonation

An odd (to my palate) beer. The flavor and aroma are unusual for a beer and not what one would actually desire to drink. It’s probably an acquired taste, but not one I’m willing to spend the time or money to acquire.

I had this in a pint glass and a snifter: basically the same in both. Thanx Cap'n for this.
The color was a murky brown with a fairly quick dieing head. Light lacing along the sides of the glass.
The smell has some light rye in a light spicy bready malt.
The taste had a light spicy rye with a light sweet caramel in and out. Light bitterness succumbs my taste buds a bit.
The mouthfeel was slightly sharp and intrusive with a slight fuller quality perhaps leaning to about a medium on the body. The carbonation was even slightly sharp.
Overall, okay rye beer, nothing to really go bonkers about.
