Thanks to AtlCarl for this extra in a recent box that I've barely been able to gnosh on with our horrific schedule. 12 oz. bottle with the word 'rye' on it, so no sense in delaying any further.

The pour is a light black with small, sporadic bubbly. Submerging my nose in the beer, I pick up faint schocolate, & little enough of that. Smells like sleep.

Black-Eye Rye is beer out of a blender. The rye interacts very oddly with the hops: rye is up front, spicy, & the spicy blends right into the piney hops. A sharp roast adds to the bonfire of confusion. Backing vocals include an earthiness & that incidental chocolate. A bit grainy, & pretty easy to drink.

The defining characteristic of the beer is the mash-up of kicky flavors that don't really mesh well, but certainly provide plenty of interest. Pretty good beer.

My first reaction was "this beer is all over the place". It's smokey malty hoppy. If this is a rye...I wasn't feeling it. This is more a black IPA / stout. Mis-labeling aside.
.I actually liked the beer for all qualities above ...smokey malty hoppy. Not a happy hour beer...definitely an after dinner/ dessert beer. I like it...just change the name.
