On tap at the Bethlehem Brew Works Brew Pub.

Poured a deep oraange color (almost brown) with a small sized off white head. Aromas of bready (rye bread), caramel and toasted malts. Tastes follow the same. Thinner body. Light lacing left on the glass.

A pint glass served at Bethlehem Brew Works.

A: The ale is a dark amber color, almost dark chocolate. There is no head but a clear stream of carbonation in the glass.

S: The aroma is a very sweet, caramel malt. Hops don't register.

T: The ale has a unique flavor, and that puts it nicely. The malt body is very thick, concentrated with a spicy hint of rye. The flavor does not hold up well, turning into a very sweet, almost sugary mess. The aftertaste is also tough, leaving that sweet/sour flavor in the mouth.

M: The ale is too green, malt-wise. It fails to develop a coherent body and ends up being too sweet.

D: I didn't finish my pint, and that is rare.
