Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

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.

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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

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.
