Tried the current batch at the brewpub, and it was much improved from last year. Strong carbonation, better color and clarity. Distinct earthy/bready rye grain flavors, a big malt bomb that was much more drinkable.

Listed as a German-style Dark Rye Ale.

Initial thin ring of foam that dwindles to nothing. No foam, low to zero carbonation. Nice deep brown chestnut color. Murky and opaque.

Aroma of maple syrup, nothing else I could pick up on. Same with the flavor, uncarbonated maple syrup. It had very little rye or spicy character at all. There was some banana as well that reminded me of a weak Dunkelweizen. Only beer I didn't finish at the brewpub.
