Pours a beautiful deep deep amber color, perfectly clear, almost mahogany, you now, a bit of brown in the middle, with a huge tannish-off white head, that's about 2cm, stays in a dense little disc on top, and leaves nice lacing. Really a beautiful beer. The smell starts a bit powdery, malty and sweet, backed up with a nice light toast/roastiness. There's a nice herbal hoppy smell, slightly grassy, a bit floral - resinous, with a tiny note of citrus in the background. I like the nice spicy smell here. And I like the spicy taste. It comes on kind of quickly, after the initial caramel sweetness, you get a nice spiciness, both kind of herbal and hoppy, and from the rye as well. It continues, feeling almost like dry cardaomom, a note of black pepper, a hint of lemon, and maybe some green leafy, earthy herbs. The leafiness continues, but it gets a bit like tea, just with some malt syrup in it or something. Finishes a little grassy with a hint of some roasted, kind of burnt tastes. The mouthfeel is nice. Pretty full, kind of on the full side of medium, which is nice for this. Not too sweet, not too dry, and the carbonation provides a nice little tickle. Good balance and quite interesting. The drinkability is good. I found this a very enjoyable beer, and would love to have some more. Of course, I couldn't see myself drinking more than 2 of these in a day, but it's something I'd like to have around, because I can tell I might have cravings for a beer like this. Recommended if you can find it.
