Notes/Commercial Description:
High quality pale, caramel, chocolate and Munich malts get a boost with roasted and chocolate rye. Dark and Light Belgian Candy Sugar is added to the kettle during the boil for smoothness and flavor. Belgian yeast gives off some fruity esters and the brew is delicately hopped so as to not overpower the malt flavors.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a balloon glass.

Look: Black as espresso beans with a cream colored head that recedes to a thick ring around the glass, light foamy lacing.

Aroma: Dark roasted malts, semi-sweet chocolate, coffee, malts.

Taste: There's an immediate dry rye backbone, then bitter coffee and dark chocolates come in. A bitter finish displays the hop bill.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, dry.

Overall: This is pretty tasty, and I like the rye component.

A brewery I've never had before. Tasted 18 March 2014.

Appearance is fine. Pours a very dark coffee brown, clear at the edges. Half-finger of medium brown-tan head, okay retention and lacing.

Smell is nice. The rye spice and coffee notes from the malts bring depth and variety. I like it.

Taste goes astray. It's not really bad, but it's not really good either. Hard to pinpoint exactly what I don't like. It's like under-brewed coffee, or chewing on roasted wood. Lacking fullness, and lacking flavors. Something is not quite right, though I can't put my finger on it.

Feel is okay. Kinda flat, watery. Meh.

Mediocre porter. The rye is a nice touch in the nose, but the taste falls flat.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

12 oz bottle poured into a nonic.
6% ABV, "Leave sediment in bottle, Serve at 48°F"

A - The nonic pint is filled with a totally black brew upon the pour and topped by a short khaki head that leaves some nice lacing on the beer clean glass but disappears rather quickly.

S - Sharp rye spice and roasted chocolate malts make for robust, inviting aroma of slightly burnt rye bread toast and coffee with a dark chocolate creamer swirled in. Wafts of peat smoke, unlit maduro cigar, and distressed leather give the background of this beer a deeper complexity to ponder.

T - Aside from a kiss of sweetness in the aroma from the added Belgian candi sugar, there's no Belgian influence on the beer until it hits the lips, where witbier-like Belgian spice undertones of light spice and citrus give the otherwise American porter an odd twist. The rye and chocolate still maintain a foothold over the flavor but the nuanced addition of yeast spins it a little south.

M - Of all the Peace Tree beers I've had so far, the soft lack of carbonation suits this one the best as it's rich body smoothly slides across the tongue to a finish balanced by roasted malt bitterness.

O - Peace Tree's Rye Porter puts two unique spins on the standard American Porter for an interesting outcome. The Belgian yeast used to ferment this dark beer doesn't quite pan out for me with it's pronounced characteristics but, the addition of rye to the roasted chocolate malt makes for a great combination that finishes with overall quality.

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

Pours a black with just a 1-finger of a tan head with good lacing. The aroma is of chocolate, malt but no rye was detected. Taste was roasted chocolate with a bitter finish with a hint of rye. I liked the taste but didn't the bitter finish. Overall it was just "OK".
