Another review from notes, again dated Su, 24 Jan 2010.

From their board: "A hoppier version of [their] O-Tay, brewed with 84 pounds of organic buckwheat and Belgian yeast." It arrived with two fingers' worth of thick, light-tan head with great retention. Color was a medium-brown with good clarity and ruby highlights. Nose had a black-peppery bite. Yow! I was immediately intrigued. Mouthfeel was medium with a biting flavor on the tongue. Had I not read their explanation, I would have guessed rye, vice buckwheat. Finish was equally dry and spicy. Get some when it is available!

Billed as a hopped up, malted up (loads of buckwheat), yeasted up (Belgian yeast)cousin of O-Tay.

Pours a rich brown color, thin khaki head with minimal retention and lacing. Scent is of earth, dry air, rich malt, peppery spice. Taste is almost comparable to a rye beer... spicey due to the grains and yeast, wonderfully balanced hop and malt profile. Boozy as it warms. Dry Dry Dry, medium bodied, good carbonation level. Interesting beer, which becomes pretty powerful as you continue to sip.
