Big, Bold and unique is what this beer is all about. It has a distinct spicy, toasted quality from chocolate Rye Malt without having any roasted malt flavors. The featured hop in this beer, Sorachi Ace was unleashed in the East as a hop distinctly bred for Japanese brewers. Possibly the most unique of all hops it has the flavor and aroma of Lemon, dill, cedar and caraway. It’s relatively high in bitterness without being overpowering.
