look: 4.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Extra in a beer trade. Bottled 11/12, poured into Sam Adams glass.

A: dark amber-red and clear, 1 1/2 finger creamy off-white head with good retention, moderate lacing.

S: Not much on the nose, some rye malts, a bit of spice? Not that aromatic.

T: Standard rye tasting malt, not much hop taste, a little bitterness on the back end.

M: Clean and crisp. Modestly dry. Tastes thin.

O: An average rye ale. Probably wouldn't drink it again, but not bad.

My 250th review!

A: Pours a dark, scarlet brown with a decent amount of creamy, off-white head atop. Carbonation looks normal. Head retention is excellent and there is a fair amount of lacing as you drink. She's a beaut.

S: Roasted grains, brown sugar, molasses, soy sauce. Heavily malt forward with a hint of floral hops and a touch of alcohol astringency.

T: Follows the nose quite well. Roasted grains with cloying sweetness dominate throughout. Finishes crisp and dry with lingering bitterness on the tongue.

M: Medium bodied with a crisp, lively carbonation that makes the tongue tingle. Very smooth and quite drinkable without much bite or chewiness.

O: Quite impressive, though I would expect no less from Speakeasy. I haven't had a lot of brews in this category, but I imagine this will satisfy any malt-forward, toasty and drinkable beer cravings you might have. Cheers!

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

S : very malty with hint of the toasted malts
T : bitter, malty with a strong sense of roasted and toasted malts. Earthy hops and a rye feel.
O: A well crafted beer, very enjoyable ale.

The bitterness subsides after a few sips and mostly a rye malty taste stays through to the finish.
