On draft at The Lark, East Northport, NY.
Poured a black hue with a one finger frothy tan head. There was Goid retention and very good lacing.
The smell featured roasted malts, charcoal and an herbal hop.
The taste was likewise roasted with a cleansing hop spice.
The mouthfeel was toward the fuller side of the style.
I don't know what the hell this beer is, but it is good.

Pours a finger and half of light tan head on a black body.
The aroma has an initial roast malt smell, then just cut hay towards a barnyard, and finally a bit of citrus. Unexpected but nice.
The taste has a roasted malt sweetness tempered by lemon bitterness, some grainy flavor and finishes with a mellow citrus note.
The texture is fizzy and light with moderate carbonation.
It's nicely done.

Pours mahogany with a pinky of tan head. Good head retention & slightly above average lacing
S: Roastyness, slight peppery notes
T: Roasty, peppery, with herbal notes, some pineyness & slight smokeyness up front. Roastyness , spicy rye, & a little brown bread & more pineyness. Finishes piney, peppery, & spicy, plus roastyness
MF: Medium bodied, firm carbonation
Works better as a black IPAor hell even a porter than a Kolsch, drinkable enough. Stone is starting to get a little out there, but I like they are still trying to push some boundries. Glad I got to try this, but not really buying the concept of a Black Rye Kolsch...

A black rye kolsch. Now that is a good one. Me chief black white clear cloudy day night!
Style aside, what is this beer? Pours deep brown/black with some ruby highlights and sports a thin and yet resilient cap of mocha foam. Aroma of light roasted malts and a touch of rye, but then not really. More rye evident in the flavor however. Offers a delicate hop presence amid a simple yeast character. At times this beer offers character similar to a Belgian Dubbel in context and at times it offers virtually nothing at all.
Light bodied and easy drinking. Still too much of a stray cat to confer much love.
