Had this on-tap at the Brick Store Pub. A beautiful beer in appearance, with a burnished cherry wood color but a scant head. Aromas of thick, resinous hops on a base of light treacle. The taste is very, very dry- especially surprising given the slightly treacly aromas. The spicy rye makes a noticeable appearance and perhaps even drys it out a bit too much. Tightly wound, it's slow to open up, but then reveals a bitter chocolate top-note. Dry but full in the mouth. This one has some flaws, but the flavors are big and intriguing. I enjoyed it.
