If you are reading this, I would suggest you stop right now and go and try to find a bottle of this beer while it is still available!

Tonight I had the privilege of buying a 22 oz. bottle of this beer from Market Beer Company in San Jose for $15; it was served in a 12 oz. tulip glass.

First impressions are wow, this beer is dark, easily as dark as a coal miner's lungs marinated in Guinness. Hints of roasted malt in the nose, rye spice and hops are perfectly balanced; with the roasted flavors becoming more pronounced as the beer warms a little. Nice dry finish, especially for a 9.5% ABV beer.

Once again, Knee Deep knocks it out of the park. If you like Wookey Jack, Sublimely Self Righteous, or Bryeian you will love this beer!

Has a hoppy, spicy nose – definite rye notes and a hint of roast but the hops dominate. It pours brilliant deep dark brown with a 1” lightly tanned lacy white foam cap that dissipates slowly. The palate starts with initial hints of caramel followed by light roast backed up and balanced by some hop bitterness with fresh grain especially in the finish. The beer has dark beer roastiness but it is dialed back just enough and the hops have just enough presence to pull the beer back from being a porter or a stout and to evoke an IPA. There are just hints of darker malt sweetness and light chocolate but again the level of hops keep it back from falling into porterdom while the dark malts mellow the hops. It a little oily, medium full body and medium carbonation.
