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.

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.

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.
