12oz bottle poured into a pint glas.

Pours a nice copper color, very little head, slightly hoppy odor. Taste is malty with a surprising amount of hops. First experience with a double rye, wasn't really what I expected. Didn't have as much rye flavor as I was looking for. Don't know if this is common for this variety of beer or not.

12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a clear, deep copper with really no head to speak of; just a bit of fizz on the surface. Some splotchy lacing but it is not impressive.

Aroma definitely has that unique rye spice along with some earthy, piny undertones. A few floral notes in there as well.

More earthy rye in the taste but is quite muted. Pine and dark rye brea along with some Earth and tree bark. Bitterness is on the high side and it has some characteristics in common with an IPA. The alcohol is very well hidden and I would have never guessed this is over 8%. Fairly thin mouthfeel with a fairly crisp finish.

Overall, an ok beer but it is lacking quite a bit in terms of flavor and aroma. Not really worth going out of your way for.
