Notes/Commercial Description:
Rye Ale fermented on local blackberries. Another music-inspired beer, Barry Rye is the latest addition to the Perennial playlist. It’s very balanced, with notes of rye spiciness and blackberry juiciness – kind of like some of Barry’s soul hits from the 70s.

3.29/5  rDev -10.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

A: look like a black IPA , dark brown, only see-through once you get to the bottom of the glass
S: pumpernickel (it is a rye) - maybe a slight coffee aroma at the end
T/M: a litter bitter/sour for the style. Up front is a pumpernickel taste, but fades into a lemony-citrus bitterness backed by a little rye-IPA dryness. Agree that the ending has note of a smoked cigar (hope it's not just power of suggestion)
O: turns bitter/sour little too quickly for me. There are some nice black IPA qualities, though. I wouldn't shy away from it in te future but won't seek it out either.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Minimal,almost non-existant foam, but very aggressive carbonation bubbles. Color is dark black with purple tint. Don't think grape soda color as it is just a hint of purple. Just a hint of rye and a bit of molasses in the aroma, but a bit more of the blackberry comes out. The aroma is actually subdued, but I don't like overly sweet in my fruit beers, so I don't view that as a big negative. The flavor is really more on thetart blackberry side. The aftertaste showcases the spiciness of the rye and makes an interesting interplay with the tartness of the blackberries. The mouthfeel is highly carbonated and slightly oily.I appreciate the daring of Perrenial's beers, but this is one of their efforts that doesn't have me clank ring for more.

3.43/5  rDev -6.5%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: The beer has a dark body that is completely opaque black. Along the edges of the glass some brown makes it through. The head is very thin and off-white but it fades to a simple ring of small bubbles within seconds. No real lacing.

S: There's a hint of band-aid and some wet cardboard. A bit of catty scent, and a touch of coffee way in the back. It's not a pleasant combination of scents.

T: I get a rich tobacco flavor like you'd get from the end of a cigar. It's earthy with a bit of sweetness. There's some coffee flavor in there too, like a rich espresso. I get a bit of cedar. It's a very interesting tasting beer that isn't like a normal rye beer. I feel that it's important to note that the bottle says "ale fermented with blackberries" and I don't pickup any blackberry flavor. If you're looking for a fruity beer this should be the furthest one down your list. It's a pleasant surprise because although this beer didn't taste anything like I thought it would, it tastes great for completely opposite reasons.

M: The mouthfeel really works well for this beer. I feel that they have the correct carbonation and "weight" to the beer. I don't know that I can say anything more than the body really complements the beer.

O: I want to break this down: I am not a fan of the smell of this beer at all. I want to plug my nose when drinking it. It doesn't look appealing either. The taste of the beer is pretty awesome. It has a lot of really great complex earthy flavors. If you're a fan of complex teas, good cigars, quality pipe tobacco, odd coffee beans, you'll probably really enjoy this beer. If you're looking for a good traditional rye or fruit beer, you will probably hate this. I would buy it again based solely on the flavor tapestry.
