Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
Big, but not huge, this American Chocolate Rye Stout fires off a lot of coffee and chocolate notes. Balances well, but rides high on hop character at 60 IBU's while the Rye finishes it dry.

3.84/5  rDev -2.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured into snifter.

A Pours runny black. Leaves about one finger of khaki head. Slight carbonation.

S Black licorice is heavy. Rye for sure. Subtle hints of caramel and cocoa. Dark fruit, plum and raisin.

T Right up front is rye. Coffee beans are very prominent as well. Extremely bitter and hoppy. Both the grainy rye and bitter coffee linger. Very potent are both of these flavors.

M Pretty thin for the style. Finishes rough, but in a good way. Dry. The bitterness and roasted coffee leave a tremendous aftertaste.

O Very enjoyable. Rye beers are so unique and this is a good example. The flavors, mostly roasted coffee and rye, mesh well. The aroma hinted at a little more than was there in the flavor. Powerful aftertaste. I like a good dry bitter stout (though this comes close to a Scotch ale) every now and then. Glad I had it.

4.2/5  rDev +6.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Conservative, beige head. Still, it leaves great sticky ring lace. Deep brown color where light passes only at the very edges of the glass.

Fresh smelling, deeply toasted malt aroma. Not quite creamy, but it's certainly smooth.

Dry, burnt toast flavor up front. Good bittering hop balance. Not much dark chocolate or coffee but this is still very flavorful. Reminds me of nearly burnt toast. Rather full busy for the style but the bubbles balance it out well.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Served in a tulip glass from bomber bottle purchased at brewery.

A: deep, dark black with two fingers of tan head that fades quickly.

S: smells of a stout with a hint of hops.

T: on first taste, this seems like a classic stout. However, the bitterness of the rye really comes through.

M: great dense feel.

O: unique stout that is worthy of a try.
