    Ardent Dark Rye


    Rye can be pretty polarizing for me, here goes.

    About a half inch head formed post pour.
    Luxurious, tiny bubble tan froth.

    Didn’t last very long.

    Rich chocolate and mild musty rye nose.

    There’s a LOT of rye.

    Ever have a really awesome beer that just doesn’t suit your palate?
    Dark Rye is that for me.

    While I get there is a solid chocolate backbone, its really buried underneath the rye.

    If you enjoy rye, this is a great beer.
    If not, look elsewhere.

    Grateful to have tried it as Ardent makes great beer.

    Skol! 🍻

    I *think* acc fan has delivered one of these in the past, perhaps in the 750 ml format, and I recall liking it a lot. Rye doesn't seem to bother my palate much so I'm looking forward to my pint can pretty soon. And, this is yet another reason why we have Ymm, Beer.

    There used to be 750ml bottles, and there was a BBA version.

    I recall enjoying Ruthless Rye(?) by Sierra Nevada, and Southern Tier Harvest Ale (and maybe a similar Ommegang beer).

    Rye in the right proportions I enjoy as an adjunct.
    As the main flavour? Not so much.

    From last PM:

    Prelude #4 in peanut butter minor:

    nuttin' 2it-Zaftig Brewing Company

    Really local when bought.

    Credit-a prior tasting from an excellent brewery and the need to complete my order
    Style-pecan (imperial) brown ale
    Format-a short aluminum tree cylinder
    Stemware-snifter
    Appearance-dark, dark brown with a thin, tan head
    Nose-nutty
    Mouthfeel-smooth
    Tastes-nuts/pecans, dark caramel, herbal/earthy hops, hints of coffee and chocolate (neither added)
    Hops-East Kent Goldings and Willamette
    Adjuncts-peecans
    IBU-estimated at 30
    ABV-10% (whoa!)
    Overall impression-tasty night cap, needing the high ABV after last night's loss
    Ymm, Beer rating-high cat 2; I liked the Olde Hickory Acan better, but that was a tequila barrel aged brown ale; I think the other 3 recipients will still like this

    Not much head, didn’t last.

    Difficult to place the nose.
    It would be easy to say nutty, and probably wrong.
    Been a while since I’ve had a proper English Ale, the nose reminds me of noble hops.

    Sweet caramel flows into something almost like grapefruit before a dry, woody finish.

    Going to have to noodle on that mid-palate note a bit.
    Unusual.

    If not for that twist, I’d call this a right down the middle typical brown ale.

    At 10%, this is lethal. No real hint of how big this beer is.

    Maybe its not grapefruit in the middle- maybe its more cherry.
    Yeah, that’s some interesting thinking as I type this.

    The grapefruit assertion is more dissonant; cherry (and maybe cherry wood) and honey makes more sense, and is more integrated.
    Maybe a temperature artifact.

    Regardless, highly enjoyable.

    Another tip of the cap and thanks to devildeac!

    Skol! 🍻
    You guys just about covered it. Nice and smooth. Easy to forget it's 10%. I could see where fuse gets the touch of cherry wood. I almost catch a little barrel action but it wasn't barrel aged...

    I agree with the highly enjoyable part.

    Now back to work. Yuck.

    SoPines Brewing is promoting the release (including in cans) of a “Euro Dark Lager” that checks in at 14% ABV. The name is stupid (“The Whatness of Your Whoness”? Seriously?), but I’m otherwise thinking I need to track this down.
    "Amazing what a minute can do."

    My guess is Southern Pines could be aiming at something similar to Samiclaus:

    https://www.beeradvocate.com/articles/488/here-comes-samichlaus/

    I used to go out of my way every year to get a bottle of Samichlaus. Can’t recall the last time I had one. Well worth seeking out if you’ve never had one.

    My thoughts exactly. Maybe they stole the Samichlaus recipe .

    I'd guess about 5 years since I had a Samichlaus. I used to buy 4 packs of it for a number of years and have mini-verticals every year or two. With family. Over two nights.
