Had on-tap at the bar in the Renaissance Hotel in Iselin, NJ:

Pours reddish copper with a thin head. Some lacing sticks.

The smell is of caramel, rye and alcohol.

The taste is sweet and minty with balancing hops. Strong on rye and caramel. It has a boozy finish.

An interesting red rye. Not bad.

Serving type: on-tap

First had: on tap at Carton

Reddish-brown pour, with a lasting white head that left some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of toasted bread, caramel malts, citrus pith and piney hops. More of the same in the taste, toasted bread and grains, malty, with notes of citrus and pine, dash of cracked pepper, and a notable apple skin finish. Mouthfeel was crisp and quite drying, body was medium. Decent beer.

Draft at The Pour House in Westmont, NJ.

Pours a very dark amber/chestnut brown color with mahogany edges and a 1.5 finger frothy off-white head.  Excellent retention, only slowly fading into a thick, lasting cap/ring.  Glass is left coated with sheets of soapy lacing. Looks great.

Slightly spicy sweet malt aroma with hints of caramel, toffee, bread and biscuit.  Subtle hops and strong spicy rye character after it warms up a bit.  Still a little bland smelling though.

Medium bodied with a prominent rye spiciness that adds another dimension to the slightly roasted and sweet malt flavors.  Peppery and spicy with nice rye flavor countered by sweet caramel malt, toffee, hazelnut and slightly roasted coffee.  Subtle hop bitterness compliments the rye before a dry finish.  Not overly complex but there's a nice spicy rue presence that's stronger than most beers in the style.

Serving type: on-tap
