Pours nearly pitch black except for some deep reddish highlights when held to the light,a full one finger tannish colored head atop that clung nicely to the glass as it settled.Piney hops stand out most in the nose along with some of the spicy rye,dark fruit, and bitter chocolate,to me it's very much hop forward.Flavors have a dark bread component to go along with mild roast and earth,there is just a light shot of piney hops,to me the dryness-earthiness is the main flavor profile,only light brown sugar-like sweetness in the finish.To me it's a hopped up porter but I like it,I like it alot.Just solid,no compaints here.

Bottled on 04/18/13.

A - Black with one finger of light brown head with good retention.

S - Deep roast, chocolate, spice; some pine and citrus aromas.

T - Roast and cocoa up front with a hint of coffee. Moderate bitterness mid palate with some pine and lighter citrus flavours. Really well balanced.

M - Medium body. Creamy. Some stickiness. Light carbonation.

12oz bottle into a FW tulip.

Pours a dark black with a nice beige head. Smell is very much like an imperial stout... i get a ton of roasted malts...but also with a good amount of hops in there as well. Taste is more of the same and very reminiscent of a hopped up imp stout, as opposed to a more IPA forward taste that you see in most other beers of this style. I definitely prefer it this way! Full bodied, medium carbonation.

Overall a surprise treat for me as a big stout guy. Recommended!

Thanks to AtlCarl for this extra in a recent box that I've barely been able to gnosh on with our horrific schedule. 12 oz. bottle with the word 'rye' on it, so no sense in delaying any further.

The pour is a light black with small, sporadic bubbly. Submerging my nose in the beer, I pick up faint schocolate, & little enough of that. Smells like sleep.

Black-Eye Rye is beer out of a blender. The rye interacts very oddly with the hops: rye is up front, spicy, & the spicy blends right into the piney hops. A sharp roast adds to the bonfire of confusion. Backing vocals include an earthiness & that incidental chocolate. A bit grainy, & pretty easy to drink.

The defining characteristic of the beer is the mash-up of kicky flavors that don't really mesh well, but certainly provide plenty of interest. Pretty good beer.

Brick Mason series #6

Pours black, with a light brown head, nice lace, good retention. Aroma was spicy, piny hops, chocolate, roast malts. Upper medium bitterness level, piny, resins, chocolate, roasted malts, slight brown sugar, mild coffee. Creamy feel, somewhat velvety, good carbonation and clean finishing.

Comes off as a hopped up stout. Good balance though, and the stout qualities are real nice and the hoppiness backs it well.
