I tried this on tap at the brewpub on Milwaukee Ave. My server recomended it to me after he informed me they were out of one of the beers I came there to try. Served in a pint glass for $5.

The beer was dark brown in color with a 1½-finger tan head that hung around for a couple minutes before receding to just a thin rim. Tons of spotty lacing clung to the sides of the glass.

Definite rye smell with rich maltiness and even a touch of coffee and dark chocolate.

It starts off sweet with caramel malt and chocolate flavors, but then the rye kicks in with a ton of spiciness. Add to that a touch of coffee and hop bitterness and you've got a very tasty beer.

Exceptionally smooth and creamy mouthfeel with carbonation on the low side.

I didn't come here to try this, but now that I did, I'll be back for more.

Thanks to fiver29 for this bottle, one among a trailer full. More rye. Stick rye in every hole, I say. It's raining rye! 22 oz. bottle split with my wife, who out of necessity has also learned an appreciation for the grain.

The pour is a mildly carbonated dark brown/light black. Nose is like a rye enema, except in the nose; wow. This is more of a rye stout smell that a stout rye smell. Chock of spicy rye circling off the surface of the beer. Not much else can cut through, but there's a fair jab of roast. Good.

Repo Man suffers from a Kate Moss-like existentialism. First impressions are of the body, or lack thereof; the brew seems thin, watery, like it might disappear if I turned the glass sideways. Spicy rye clashes with the roast/coffee like the Battle of El Alamein; these two strains just don't go well together. Not much else going on.

A noble idea marred by a beer that cuts a straight line down the center of mediocre. Nothing wrong with it. Just beer.

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured into nonic pint glass; jet black with a big fluffy creamy tan head that fades after a bit leaving awesome rings of lacing. Smell is roasted malt, slight coffee, sweet chocolate, soft rye grain. Taste is sweet chocolate, bitter coffee roasted malt, and a hint of spicy grainy rye mixed in with it all. The rye grain adds an extra dimension to the mouthfeel, which is on the thinner side for a stout but the carbonation makes up for it.
