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!

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.

Amber reddish color with a huge beige fluffy head with decent retention and leaving a wall of strong laces.
Light aroma of grainy malt, rye, spicy yeast and earthy hops.
Balanced and bold flavor of rye, roasted and toasted malts, earthy hops, mild pine and lemon, caramel and American Amber Ale yeast. Dry aftertaste with a long lasting bitterness and residual taste.
Light body with appropriate carbonation.
Enjoyable brew, a bit one dimensional and could have a more intense aroma, but it is very well balanced and even sessionable.

A - Deep pretty violet. Reminds me of Consecration.

S - Fruity breadiness.

T - Oh yeah that's a red rye if you ask me. Spicy bread. Thought it would be sweeter and fruitier from the smell. A bitter finish. Not too complex but enjoyable rye character.

M - Medium body and crisp amount of carbonation. It's nice.

O - A good rye beer. Slightly uncommon for me, but I liked it.
