Notes/Commercial Description:
Join us in excitement as we release the winning brew from our Batch #1000 homebrew contest - Bryeian! Hard to believe that we've brewed 1,000+ batches of beer and for those who have been with us throughout the years, probably surprising to see that the winner is a hoppy ale! A cascadian, dark rye ale to be exact. Brian Pramov and Bryan Keas, a pair of homebrewers from Denver put together this winning recipe for us and it shined brightly in our competition. The roast of the dark malts, the spice of the rye and the intense hop character combine for a fantastic experience.

750 ml capped bottle. Bottled 8/7/13.

Served chilled into a goblet.

Batch 1000 is a very dark brown ale with thick bone white head. It has great retention, settling very slowly, and leaving some nice lacing behind.

Aroma is a very enjoyable combination of citrusy hops and a sweet vanilla.

Flavor is hoppy but balanced with a sweet roasty malt body. It has great bitterness from the abundant hopping but also from the dark malts. The rye provides a pleasant spice and pumpernickel bread character.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and nicely carbonated. Balanced and enjoyable.

Overall a very enjoyable beer. Cheers to the home brewers in Denver who one this prestigious competition. They deserved it.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Dark brown. Decent khaki head. Nice surface wisps and even some lace.

Smell - Grapefruit hops. Roasty malt. I get some faint rye.

Taste - Aggressive grapefruit hop. Spicy rye character. Coffee roasted malts and some bitterness. A hint of caramel sweetness.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Well carbonated.

Overall - I wanted dislike it, but it's not bad.
