Pours a deep and mysterious mahogany. What's going on in here?

Brioche and pine nose.
First thing that hit me from the first sip was the soft and rounded mouthfeel. Followed by graham cracker malt and a bitter forest finish. The rye really adds a quality complexity to this brew. I wanted a little more from the hops, though. Getting mostly bitter pine with some citrus.

12 oz bottle.

Poured with a light tan head that had great retention and left a surprisingly complete coverage on the glass. Deep amber body is surprisingly dark for style.

Aroma: sweet, spicy and hoppy. As suggested by the dark body, there seems to be a generous load of rye and malted barley in this.

Flavor: a hop bomb with added spicy rye and enough malt to temper the still moderately high bitterness.

Feel: near full body; very smooth; mild, soft, medium carbonation.
