Delicious rye beer for those who worship at the house of rye beers. Enjoyed this in draft 16 oz pour in standard pint glass at The Craft Bar Destin, Fl. Dark Amber colored color with very nice head leading to nice lacing sip after sip. Caramel, earthiness leading to wonderful rye notes. A beer worth seeking out for sure. Pick this one up on your next trip to your local craft beer shop or pub.

L - Dark red, clear, very inviting. Nice head and wonderful head retention.
S- Can smell the rye but also a berry smell with overtones of chocolate. Great smell
T- Really smooth, very complex with a lot going on. Berry and hint of licorice comes out. A bit bitter on the finish but ok.
F- Good feel, substantial for a dark red beer, almost like a stout. A bit on the heavy side and a bit too much carbonation.
O - I really like this beer in all aspects, but I don't usually have more than one or two at a time because it is bold.
