Karsten Brothers Brewing first attempt at a beer that tastes like a nice, dry, rye toast. Added approximately 3 tablespoons of fresh, ground caraway seeds to the secondary fermenter, but didn't want overpowering caraway so bottled after just a week in secondary. Wonderful sweet and slightly liquorice aroma from the seeds just puts this beer over the top
