The Bruery Rugbrød JuleBryg-Style Dark Rye Ale

Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.

Tonight’s featured beer is The Bruery Rugbrød JuleBryg-Style Dark Rye Ale.

From The Bruery website: “Meaning “rye bread” in Danish, we took our
inspiration for this beer from the Danes’ staple dark, whole grain rye bread. Brewed with three types of rye malt, this robust brown ale showcases the earthy, spicy character of the grain,
complemented by bready, nutty barley malts and a hint of roast. Loosely based on the Scandinavian Christmas beer or “Julebryg” tradition, this beer is perfect for the colder weather of winter. And don’t worry about the name, we can’t pronounce it either!”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours dark brown with a dense off-white head and soapy lacing.
Aroma: Caramel, dark fruits, brown sugar, spicy rye, bready, cloves and other spices.
Taste: Caramel, rye bread, light chocolate, nutmeg, brown sugar, dark fruits, clove, bready malts and a touch nutty.
Overall: Enjoyable and malty, The Bruery Rugbrød JuleBryg-Style Dark Rye Ale is smooth and well rounded. This 8% ABV offering is certainly worth a try for fans of the style.
