A- poured a dark rich solid brown color. 2 1/2 finger dark tan head with wonderful lacing creeping up the sides of the glass. Settles to a thick film for most of the drink.
S- the rye malts dominate this aroma. Under it is a lightly bitter notes of milk chocolate and espresso. There is a peppery quality and maybe a hint if earth.
T- again, the rye dominates the taste. The chewy, slightly peppery flavor of rye hits you first and lingers. A bit of the milk choloate creeps through. I could detect a roasted grain note. I didn't get any coffee flavor at all. There's an almost smokey note there as well. Very mild hops on the tail, but the rye flavor really over takes any subtle nuances.
M- the mouthfeel was creamier & smoother than expected. Not a whole lot if carbonation. The finish was moderate & dry.
O- a nicely done rye stout (if you don't like the flavor it scent if rye, why drink a rye stout after all?). I would have like a bit more layering of flavors, but overall a very solid beer.

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.

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.
