Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and rye aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa and rye flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a decent but somewhat mild rye presence.

The Natasha Rocks ME!!! The Chocolate Rye Stout is AWESOME!!! The beer pours an opaque dark with ecru head that is leaving a spotty lace. The scent is predominent espresso with chocolate hints that are amazing. The taste is dry and carries a chocolate burst that eventually turns to coffee. The mouthfeel is full in body with good carbonation. Overall this is a sharp beer that is very ...very good!

Bought this in Orlando Florida at Knightly Spirits.

Served in Schlafly's tulip at about 2:30 AM.

A: Poured a ridiculously black color, without much of a head to speak of.

S: Bitter cacao. If that's you're thing, this might be your beer. Pretty rich.

T: The rye stains the teeth like a rat bastard from hell and I actually dig that quality here. Chocolate is also most certainly evident.

M: Bitter, but not too. No lacing left on the glass.

O: Cowabunga man! I liked this, but didn't love it.

Black and opaque with a very, very thick brown head, rich and foamy, plenty of sticky lacing. Licorice and anise in the aroma; mint and dark roasted malts. Spicy, hoppy flavors; peppery; slight alcohol edge. Light bodied; dry finish.

A rather interesting collaboration. The body comes across surprisingly light yet there is plenty of taste and aroma components to makes this one stand out in its own way.
