750ml bottle. 2012 Release. Served in a snifter.
Pours a hazy caramel brown with about a finger of dark beige foam. Settles quickly to a creamy ring. Bits of lacing here and there.
Aroma of molasses, brown sugar, candi sugar and spicy rye. A small metallic note emerges as well. No real alcohol.
Initial flavor is pleasantly sweet and quickly becomes spicy through the middle. Some burnt sugar and brown bread notes. Some maple. Bitter hops emerge in the finish and aftertaste. Spiciness from the rye really kicks up in the aftertaste as well. No real sign of the alcohol.
Medium bodied with medium-low, creamy carbonation. Very nice feel.

750ml. Capped bottle at fridge temp poured into a snifter.
Pours out a dark dark brown color, a little bit of dark rubiness, tight light tan head, average retention, lace is quick to fall back into the beer. Looks murky, but its hard to tell due to the dark color.
Smells lIke a rather bland Belgian dark ale. Over ripe dark fruits, some phenoly almost Belgian yeast. Some brown sugar.
Plum, ripe dark fruits, brown sugar, phenoly Belgian yeast, some rye like dry spice, but its not super noticeable. Finishes pretty dry.
Medium to light in body, mouthfeel is just a touch on the weak side.
This wasn't super enjoyable, if I didn't know what this was I'd definatly guess Belgian dark ale, and I prolly wouldn't have guessed any rye was used. I wouldn't buy this again.

seemed a bit thick in the pour. deep, dark almost neon magenta through the duvel glass with a tan, tight bubble topping.
not getting much in the smell except an effervescent alcohol smell. a little spice too?
taste is... different. got some earthiness to it. unexplainable in my vocabulary of knowledge but not bad. "julebrig-style dark rye ale" it says on the label. there is a slight tangy bitterness and a slight prune-y taste.
medium to heavy in feel. The Bruery is relatively local but i still havent made it to their sampling room. their beers seem to have a little twist to each of them and are of a higher abv value. for the most part they have all been drinkable- nothing too obscene, and this is another decent brew from them. it's another adventurous endeavor and in the context of evaluating this one as a stand alone (and not compared to others i have just had or what i may have been expecting from this) this is a very worthy brew.

Bready, dark, aromatic, delicious.
Pours a deep caramel brown with
Rye malts give an intense bread flavor with a hint of roast.
There is a nice heaviness to the mouthfeel.
The spiciness at the finish is subtle yet noticable.
Perfect with nutty cheeses or venison stew on a cold winter's night.
