Even when you don't particularly care for the flavor profile of a Bruery beer, you recognize that it is exploding with quality ingredients. Such is the case with Rugbro[INSERT SLASH]d.

Pours a deep brown with a tiny off-white head.

Smells like ... rye pumpernickel bread. Seriously, it's like liquid bread.

Taste is .. you guessed it, like dark, rye, pumpernickel bread. Whoa. An insanely strong flavor to it, it tastes like a meal. A hint of malt sweetness, maybe a tad of brown sugar to it. A bit one-note, but explosive flavor.

**Had a chance to try a bit more of it. When not being consumed side by side with some of the other Bruery offerings, it's given a bit more of an opportunity to shine.

On cask at The Bruery, Review 2.0, entering this back in after the crash,

A: Pours brown with a nice creamy, frothy white head.

S: Notes of strong dark bread, rye, cinnamon.

T: Flavour is very similar to the smell, heavy on the brown bread, spicy rye, some molasses and winter type spices.

M: Pretty smooth, medium-bodied, lighter than I expected for 8%, possibly due to the cask.

D: A nice solid effort from Pat and Co., this may be their new year-round. I expected a little bigger attack from the flavours with this much malt and at 8%, nevertheless, a quite enjoyable new brew.
