Harpoon Leviathan - Imperial Rye by Harpoon Brewery - Boston
Rye Beer
8.90 % ABV

Leviathan Imperial Rye will awaken your
palate with the crisp bitterness of hops
and the spicy sweetness of barley and
rye. Rye, a traditional but seldom used
brewing grain, adds unique depth and
complexity to this dark, reddish gold-
colored English style ale. The Bramling
Cross hops impart a subtle fruit and
citrus aroma while bittering hops
balance the sweetness derived from the
malted rye and barley combination.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a Sam Adams Summer Ale stange.

The color is a somewhat hazy orange amber with a slight finger of foamy off-white head and some slight lacing left on the glass.

The smell has a nice smooth rye aroma with a slight grassy aroma. The is a candy like sweetness in the background that is teases the senses.

The taste is sweet at first, there is a lead weight that is the rye dropping down onto the taste buds and then settling back as some malty flavor comes out. There is a bit of dry pear with some brown sugar and some grainy bread like flavor.

The feel of this beer is pretty easy drinking but does give you a notice of the larger ABV as the end bites with a nice alcohal flavor at the very end. This is bigger then an average beer and is pretty complex.

This beer makes me want to have a sandwich with some turkey, Swiss cheese, and some horseradish mustard and a piece of lettuce and tomato.

Served In: Pint Glass
