Draft service into a snifter glass at Redwood Curtain Brewery in Arcata.

A: Clear, dark amber color with one finger of persistent parchment-tinted foam head. Moderate lacing remains on the glass.

S: Toasted rye bread provides the basis for this beer's smell, while mild herbaceous hops are suggestive of wild mustard stems.

T: Begins barely off-dry, with hearty toasted malts that even taste slightly scorched, and clove-like spice. The middle exhibits mild floral flavors as sweetness increases slightly. The finish is astringently bitter, tea-like.

M: Medium viscosity, balanced and slightly piquant on the palate, with moderate carbonation.

D/O: An interesting and well-crafted example of the little-seen alt style. There is a lot going on, which subtracts somewhat from its drinkability. After a while the palate throbs from the spiciness which is of indeterminate origin.
