Poured a clear amber with an enormous yellow head that has awesome retention and leaves excellent lacing. Spicy rye aroma with some strawberries, All-Bran cereal, cream of wheat, caramel malt, cornbread, brown sugar....very earthy. Taste is good: massive hop backbone with rye toast, earthiness, buttered biscuit. Good carbonation and medium mouthfeel.
