Thanks for sharing, mjyoung!

Pours a deep, clear, raisin brown with a faint bubbly collar of a head. Rye, red grapes, caramel and a hint of hop and milk chocolate come through. The mouth is clean with a medium-thin body and bubbly carbonation. A tad watery but easy to drink. I thought the rye was a bit low, and this beer could have used more flavor all around, but what was there was good and I enjoyed the glass I had. Thanks Matt.
