The best score I came up with at Khoury's in Las Vegas, the only shop in that city with this beer. Was nice to see it at almost every store in Reno when I came home.

Brown pour, 1/2" head on it, looks good. Nice hoppy aromatic dominance in the aroma department, didn't allow any roasted aroma to take over, I think that means they probably used that dehusked black malt. You get a lot of the nice hop aromas, tropical, grassy, green, pine, sticky icky danky.

Taste, nice, not massive burnt bitterness of lesser black ales, this was a light in terms of body black ale, but still dark in color, while letting the hops shine on. Alcohol pretty well stuffed under the rug and not prevalent on the tongue. Enjoyable contribution from the rye, more sweet than spicy in this connotation, but that black malt seems to absorb heat (of all kinds) a little better than others.

Some real good stuff here, really didn't want to let my last bottle go as an extra in the last trade, but spread the wealth, that's what I always say, when its a choice at least, not when its being forced upon you!
