The second we looked at the grain bill and said “That’s enough rye” -- we immediately doubled the amount. A peppery bite from the malt, and plenty of alpha acid from the Chinook and Glacier hops. They all come together into a brew that we’re ecstatic to share with a certain type of people; people who love things that are awesome.

Poured on-tap at The Tap, the beer was served in a nonic pint. The beer is a ruby-brown coloring with a filmy, cream colored head. Clingy all over the glass. Nose of toasted grains, tangy caramel, and subtle, bitter hops. Flavors of roasted caramel and toffee sweetness forward, with a bready undertone and bitter highlights of hops and chocolate. Booze highlights, with tangy sweet notes into the aftertaste. Smooth, full bodied, with a bitter, dry, smooth finish. Very layered and dynamic.
