Description 

Evoking memories of our grandparents' home laden with anitique oak furniture, ornate woodwork, pipe tobacco, toffee candies and perhaps an old, hidden bottle of sherry, Antiquity Rye Wine is a dark copper ale with a spicy/peppery note from rye combining rich maltiness, oak character and aromas/flavors like melted caramel, toffee, vanilla, sweet chocolate and raisins in a full-bodied beer nicely balanced with a dry, hoppy finish.

Well… if you like rye flavors, you’ll love this beer. If you don’t, steer clear! This is one of those beers that exemplifies some special or atypical ingredient, which makes for an interesting (if not always pleasant) experience. But it’s totally rye, all right…

It pours a brilliant amber...
