A rich, chocolaty English Porter with a clean finish. We use the finest floor-malted Maris Otter malts from England, the same malts used for the best single-malt scotch. A portion of malted rye gives a spicy, slightly dry finish.

My first beer! It made a great first impression for "beer." Once I got into beer and came back to it. My second impression of the "Sly Rye" was less stunning. I did not care for the flavor the second time around, though the taste and feel were both what I liked about it my first go. I came back around to it. Like Dos Perros, it is a great middle-ground beer. It has some flavor and intensity to it but it is easy-going enough that I can relax with one and I would certainly recommend it to others. But perhaps that is more for sentimental value than anything.

An absolutely wonderful porter. Little head retention, and slight on aroma with only slightest hints of coffee and dark malt. The mouthfeel is spot on for a porter; not to thick, not to thin, but just right. The flavor is a bit surprising (imo) given the other unassuming qualities of the beer, overall taste is a solid malt backbone but the rye comes through unmistakably in the finish.
