Batch #1000: Bryeian, Cascadian Dark Rye Ale. 7% ABV.
A: A finger and a half of tan head. Black, with a warm reddish-brown hue in the bottom. Plenty of very fine lacing, which looks to have no intention of leaving any time soon!
S: Dark rye is right! Very dark rye smell. A little bit of char and licorice.
T/MF: Eww! Creamy texture. Tastes likes toast that has been burnt to the point of being nigh unrecognizable! There's a touch of background sweetness, but I can't place it.
This is not the beer for me. I'm contemplating drain pour, but I paid $9 on this, so I'll try to drink it. Who knows; maybe it will get better as it warms!
Poured from a 750mL bottle, into a Petrus chalice.

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.

Pours a dark black with some dark khaki tinge and a fluffy off white head with great retention. Smell is rye, malt, and hops, very rich nose. Taste is hoppy and bitter up front with some grains and bread finishing it off leaving a distinct rye flavor on the aftertaste. Taste gets a bit muddy with all the different bitter flavors. Mouth feel is medium bodied, smooth, moderate to high carbonation. Overall, a good dry dark ale, but nothing extraordinary. What this beer has going for it is tons and tons of rye which is great, and where most rye beers unfortunately fail.
