What the brewers say

“Brewed with 60 percent rye, Talus, and HBC 630 hops.”

What our panel thought

“If you approach this as a summer barleywine, it works. Somewhat spice-driven nose. Bright up front morphs to a plump raisin, plum profile. Bready malt really is needed to go with the rye, which is present enough. The mouthfeel is full, but attenuation is right and avoided going too sweet. It feels like a Bavarian got lost in London and tried to turn a helles into a barleywine.”

What our editors thought

“Nutty, dried pasta aroma segues into a wheaty but mellow sip with dialed back structure.”
