Poured out from a growler. Dark brown in color. Somewhat fruity, figs, holiday spices and earthy malt. Medium bodied. Slightly bitter, semi dry and well balanced. Not bad, not great. Eh.

Looks good. Pours a nice deep red. Pretty much downhill from there. Weak smell. It doesn't tell you much. The first taste is confusing then interesting followed by disappointment. Nothing really stands out. You can taste the rye but they must have forgot to put anything else in this one. I'm bored with it ........Next!!!

Everything is in excellent balance here, sweet dark malts, very subdued distinctive hops under a bunch of other flavors and rye. The whole experience is a well-integrated winter ale, and a delicious one - spot on!

This tastes like what it is, a spiced rye beer. Good for a winter. Stay in school.

Dark Amber color with decent head and mild carbonation. Sweet aroma with hints of baking chocolate. Tastes like it smells. Sweet. Ginger herbal flavors. Don't taste the cascade in the foreground.

Tried Sleigh Ryed as part of a winter beer tasting. Smell and taste was overwhelming caramel and not balanced enlighten. However I love that flavor so it tasted good. Mouthfeel was strongly lacking and this beer was a bit thin and not carbonated enough.overall I enjoyed it though because the rye malt was very prominent.
