Poured from a bomber into a tulip- pours a dark brown cherry color with 1.5 fingers of head, a modest ring of foam lingers throughout, and a few spots of lacing.

Smell is of rye and booze- rich malty notes, a sharp rye smell and booze.

Tastes like the beer version of pumpernickel bread- delicious. Some bitterness up front followed by rich malt flavor; the rye develops sharply I'm the middle and then s,oaths back out into a yeasty, rye, and slightly dry finish.

Mouthfeel oIs perfectly appropriate- full bodied, well carbonated, rich. I got this beer and then made some pork tenderloin to pair with it and it was excellent.

750ml Bottle received in trade with igeunard - thanks!

Appearance - Brown colour with a smaller size fizzy/frothy beige coloured head. There is a high amount of carbonation showing and there is some decent lacing. The head lasted for around 5 minutes.

Smell - Breads/grains, caramel, molasses, pepper, malts

Taste & Mouth - There is a high amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, breads/grains mixed with some caramel/molasses. There is also some fig/dates and some peppery notes.

Overall - Really good. Nice deep flavours and a complex taste. A great fall/autumn type of beer, lots of rustic flavour.
