Picked this up on a sale yesterday out of curiosity. Pours much darker than I was expecting (although I was thinking more kolsch than rye going into it), with medium carbonation and foam that quickly dissipates. Nothing much impressed me about this except the idea. No surprising spiciness from the rye, no outstanding trademark kolsch-ness, nothing. Overall seemed pretty bland. Didn't check for a bottling date to closely, may have been old? Either way, won't be having again.

Color- near black. Huge thick cream coffee head.

Aroma- toasted rye bread. A strange, smokey, meaty brew

Taste- mildly smokey, gentle black brew. Hops and pecans make a slight appearance in the mid-body, fishing charred but slightly hoppy. Would pair well with BBQ.

Overall, this is one of the more lackluster brews from Stone.

Poured from 650 ml bottle into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). Tasted on 5/23/14 and 6/22/14. Purchased at Costco in Austin.
