4.13/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Drank 5/15/10
On Cask at The Bruery poured into a Bruery tulip

A - Pours a very dark brown/amber that is clear for its darkness (has no haze). Amazing beige head that lasts for quite a while. There is quite a bit of lacing that lasts as you drink it.

S - The smell is smokey and rye along with oak. There is also some sweetness to the smell that I can't identify as anything specific.

T - Taste is similar to the smell but better. I can taste the rye and roasted smokey malts along with oak, a little bit of cocoa and some spices.

M - Mouthfeel is very good its thick in the mouth. Its very silky and creamy and leaves a nice oil in the mouth. Has a nice amount of carbonation.

D - The drinkability is pretty good. You don't really taste the ABV but it is a very heavy beer so one beer is very filling. I would definitely drink more of this.

Overall this is a great beer. I wasn't a hug fan of the standard Rugbrød but this beer I feel is a great step up from the original. I really like the flavor and mouthfeel. A good beer in general that is very filling.

Poured into a Bruery snifter.

Pours a beige head that fades down fast. Color is a copper hued brown. Clear, but dark.

Aroma: Lots of rye and roasted malt, but the french oak sticks out a lot here. It adds a layer of wine like flavors and grape to the beer. I also get some spice notes here. I am liking this more than the regular version.

Taste: The obvious rye sticks out right away with an immediate following of oak. A lot of roasted/smoked malts here. More smokey than roasted. Then the wine flavors and grapes kick in with some dark dried fruits showing. This beer is pretty malt based with not a lot of hops showing. Also has spice flavors going on. Started it with a 4.0, but this deserves a 4.5 for a rye ale. Very legit.

Mouthfeel: Dry, spiced, and toasty. Medium bodied with a lower amount of carbonation. Ends very dry with lots of rye flavors.

Overall, this is MUCH better than the regular version. For some reason the regular version didn't appeal to me, but the french oak adds a layer of complexity that this beer needed. Lots of great flavors added to this beer and it turned out well. Really happy I got to try this one. Pretty drinkable as well.
