12 oz bottle. No date found.

Pours clear copper in color with a nice head that has very good duration, Nice sheets of lacing are left on the glass.

M: smooth and full, with excellent, lively carbonation.

Aroma: sweet malts, including caramel, with plenty of multi-grain bread and a little spiciness from the rye.

T: could be adequately described as a malty American PA with an additional spicy rye component.

O: A malty and spicy PA. Well crafted and easy to drink.

A very good offering from ST. Here goes:

A: Dark but clear amber-brown. A very good head that lingers and leaves lacing as well. Interestingly, I was able to guess the abv merely from drinking it (the bartender was quite shocked), if that tells you anything.

S: Very sweet and piney. Lots of caramel malt and rye complemented by piney hops and some grapefruit. Very honey-ish.

T: Piney hops with caramel and honey. Follows the nose quite well. Also a substantial grapefruit aftertaste.

F: Good.

O: A solid beer. Predominate rye and caramel malt with a large helping of piney/grapefruity hops.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass

A- pours a deep amber color with a small creamy off-white head that reduces to a thin layer floating on top

S- sweet caramel malt with some toasted grain, spicy and peppery rye with piney hop aroma

T- citrusy and piney hop flavor up front mixes with spicy, peppery & earthy rye. Underlying caramel malt adds a bit of sweetness on the close

M- medium-viscous body with medium carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a slightly chewy finish

O- good drinkability with a nice spicy rye kick

Good rye, but a little unbalanced against the alcohol flavor though I understand its a double
