Tasting Notes

"This well-balanced rye falls right in the sweet spot between spicy and sweet. Classic rye spices - cinnamon, clove, black pepper - set off less conventional ones like sarsaparilla, hops and cardamom. There is a good oily/viscous weight to it, which adds a creamy texture to the softer flavors of malted chocolate, brown bread and sweet grain breakfast cereal. "
