12 oz poured into a snifter. Rust brown colored with a tiny head that left fast.
Smells strongly malty with earthy undertones; yes, I like it. Caramel, toast stand out... perhaps a hint of hops here and there.
Taste is strongly bitter. While I like my strong ales sweet, I dig 'em like this too... good malt complexity and a smack of bitterness. Good hop flavors too with citrus standing out, so I hardly doubt its freshness, although I have no way of being 100% certain.
Almost candy like at the finish save for bitterness, the malts sure are strong in this one. Not terribly rye forward IMO.
Medium body, good carbonation too that generally works in hoppy beers. Glad to drink it finally.
