Notes: "This one is broadly in the dark Altbier style - a rich brown beer with a complex malty taste, accent with some peppery flavor from a judicious amount of crystal rye malt. Very roasty and nicely bitter."

Brewed with organic Pilsner malt, imported crystal and rye malts, Brewers Gold and Sterling hops. 5.2%ABV, 35 BU

Very roasty and nicely bitter, too. Brewed with Gambrinus Organic Pilsner malt, imported crystal and rye malts, Brewers Gold and Sterling hops. 5.2%, 35 BU"

Imperial pint at the taproom, the dark rye is dark chestnut brown with small white head.

Smell is soft and malty, caramel and a little spice.

Taste is nice and full flavored, lots of spice character from the rye nicely balanced with the bittersweet malt and herbal hops.

Mouthfeel is dry and crisp, with a clean finish and medium-light body.

Drinkabilty is really good for me. I'm not really familiar with the dark altbier style, but as a self-proclaimed broad interpretation, I'm comfortable thinking of it as an American brown or regular rye ale, in which case it's a damn good one!
