4.35/5 rDev +10.4%
Poured from a 22oz bottle into two pint glasses. Thanks to HeatherAnn for the assist!
A: Pours a dark, dark black with a dark khaki head. The head retains for ages, is very creamy, and left a bunch of sticky lace coating the glass.
S: Aromas of spicy rye, bitter bakers chocolate, cocoa nibs, toasted pumpernickel bread, and lemony/herbal hops.
T: Big whack of spicy, spicy rye followed bye earthy and herbal hops. Bitter dark chocolate and lemon in the finish.
M: Dry, spicy, and peppery. Lips and tongue got quite tingly during the finish.
D: Very nice. Our first experience with anything brewed in their brand new brewwery.

pours a very dark brown almost black with a 2 finger tan head that left lacing all down the glass
smells of milk chocolate roasted malts
taste - reminds me of 3F Black Sun Stout and other irish dry stouts - pretty hoppy (floral) then the dry ashy bitter chocolate malt
mouthfeel is a medium/light body with plenty of carbonation - very dry finish
overall - a crazy drinkable dry stout - drinking this made me think of other stouts that are as good that are made year round since this is a one time wonder - glad i got to sip on this one

A: Pours a very dark brown with about two centimeters of head. Leaves a bit of lacing as the head recedes.
S: Faint roasty malts and a slight bit of hoppiness. Nothing really sticks out with the smell. Pretty standard for a stout.
T: Excellent representation of a plain American Stout. Greaty roasty characteristics coupled with a bit of coffee and a small amount of noticable hoppy bitterness. The Rye is very noticable and adds a unique quality to this beer.
M: Very smooth, drinkable, and creamy. Very pleasant going down the throat.
O: This a fine American Stout. As far as regular non whatever barrel aged stouts go, this is one of the better stouts I've had.

22oz bomber, split and served in a shaker pint
appearance: dark mahogany body, thick foamy chocolate head, creamy lace
smell: roasted malt, rye, chocolate, coffee, light leafy hops
taste: really nice stout - the rye provides some nice spicy notes. Chocolate, coffee and roasted malts carry the way. The hops are present but quite mellow - this one has some age so i can't say what it was like fresh, but i really like what it is now
mouthfeel: creamy medium body, some spice from the rye, some bitterness from the hops

It pours a dense black (in my new duvel art glass so it is kind of hard to tell *exactly* what is going on). The head is large, foamy, and tan and leaves some very nice lacing.
Immediately the smell on this one is noticeable. For a 7% stout it is pretty fragrant. It has some solid clean dark barley malt scents, rye, some cocoa and caramel, and some slightly herbal hops. It is a really pleasant mix.
The flavor is also full flavored. It is definitely a hoppy stout, and as long as you pass the % threshold I think stouts can work well with hops. I'm glad I'm having this one fresh, the rye is really noticeable, I am not like a rye fan or anything but this one leaves a noticeable impression, not as good as a roggenbier but pretty damn interesting for a stout. Roasty and bitter malt flavors along with cocoa follow it up with some nice hop notes on the back end, even a subtle pine and fruit note.
This is a really smooth but complex brew, probably the best I have had from this brewery.

The beer is black with an inch of beige cap. The aroma brings big dark roast, chocolate, light spice, a touch of hops. The flavor offers a big roasted malt and chocolate bill with hints of coffee and smoke. Rye character emerges mid to late palate and really adds a nice touch. Medium to full bodied and smooth. A delicious beer. I'd have this again.
