First Sourdough rye - verdicts please?

Hey gang,

Baked my first sourdough rye and mostly followed the KA Jeffrey's sourdough rye recipe.  I used a 24 hr cold ferment as well.

128g dark rye

149g KA bread flour

110g rye starter super active

170g water

1/2 tsp yeast

8g salt

I calculated 68% hydration. Texture seems ok to me,  but I'm definitely not a rye expert. 

Thanks for looking!

I forgot to mention,  I blended caramelized sweet onion in the loaf.  It smells fantastic.
