Not typically my style but very well done. Red and rye fans will be very pleased with this. Nice light and approachable body with plenty of rye bite on the backend. Was pleasantly surprised.

Deep dark, reddish amber color. Enough carbonation to create a a very thick and chunky, khaki colored foam cap.

A spicy rye scented malt, very spicy and earthy. Roasted nuts, dark chocolate and spicy hops.

The flavor is very malt forward with a big, spicy rye taste. Earthy and spicy all over the place! Very heady malt forward and just enough earthy hops to make a decent balance with interesting depth. A very full bodied feel, pretty malty heavy feel, smooth finish. I like it when the Rye is big and spicy!

Pretty high quality stuff, excellent rye effect.

From the 1 pint bottle. Sampled on January 18, 2015.

The pour is an unfiltered or at least hazy reddish-brown color under a long-lasting tremendous off-white head.

The aroma has a nice rye grain malt note following immediately by earth and pine hops, yeast, and a slight meaty fruit character.

The body is medium or better and smooth.

The rye begins the tasting experience and then there is a boastful earthy and pine bitter bite lingering at the end.

Poured from an updated bottle purchased at the brewery.

A: dark Amber with a 2 finger white fluffy head
S: piney hops and heavy dose of rye. Some mango.
T: malt comes through with some hops.
M: medium body/carb.
O: excellent beer. I also picked the IPA but actually like the rye beer more. Glad I picked up two bottles of the rye. I will definitely get more next time I pass through New Hampshire.

Poured from the bottle into a Spiegelau IPA glass.

Deep chestnut brown and red body. An almost ruby like quality but a shiny brown that glows nicely before the dregs hit that make a nice chocolate paste. Fine and light khaki top, fluffy and an easy two to three fingers. Island retention and light top with big amounts of lacing.

Delicious aroma for rye and hop mix. Chewy and spicy mix on the nose for the malt, with a soft sweetness. Hop dense quality with a mild dank sweetness and earthy quality. Real nice complimenting malt and hop character.

Palate takes things down a bit. Light slightly wet body, with a washing spicy malt mix. Hop angle provides a much more unique angle bringing the dense character and making for a larger flavor of almost smoke and sweet dirt. Palate is a bit prickly and makes for a slightly distracting experience.

A much more decent rye brew than I've had before that's for sure.
