On tap at Central Coast Brewing in San Luis Obispo, CA.

Pours a super dark brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. A foamy latticework of lace coats the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, rye, and herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with a roasty aftertaste. There is a medium herbal hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is drinkable and pretty tasty.

Central Coast Catch 23
On tap from the brewery

Appearance: dark brown, very good lacing, and medium head.

Smell: rich hops, grain, and rye.

Taste: rich malty hops, slight chocolate, and a light rye finish.

Mouthfeel: medium.

Overall:
This is a nice brew. The hops are very pleasant and prevalent. The rye isn't very strong, but you can taste it in the background. 4.5
