Cask served at the brewpub.

Pours a hazy brownish-copper color with a 1.5-finger cream-colored head. The head recedes into a thin layer on top leaving decent lacing.

Smells of grainy caramel malts with good amounts of spicy rye and leafy hops. Also present are hints of earthy peppers - more garden-like aromas than spicy though - and smokiness. As the beer warms the smokiness increases.

Tastes good. Mildly dry caramel malt flavors kick things off. Joining in shortly thereafter are solid amounts of smooth rye and lighter amounts of smoke. Midway through the sip hints of earthy hops make an appearance. Finally, near the end of the sip a soft heat starts up and intensifies through to the mildly bitter ending.

Mouthfeel is good. It's got a nice thickness with soft carbonation.

Drinkability is very good. I finished my glass quickly and could easily have a few more.

Overall I was impressed with this beer - it had a lot going on and I drank it down fast trying to figure everything out. A nice beer that's well worth a shot.
