Look is good and smell is great. Taste is also very good. Great coffee forward taste with rich chocolate background. I also love the creamy texture. At 10%, the alcohol is very well hidden.

Very dark brown with a one finger tan head.
Coffee peat on the nose.
Taste follows with some nutty toffee. The rye addition gives it a nice hint of spice.
Slightly creamy mouthfeel. Smooth and delicious semisweet finish.

On tap at Pie Dog in Fullerton.

Burnished liquid leather pour capped by a tightly packed wet milky tan head that quickly dissipates leaving a thin ring around the edge.
Nose brings a coffee roast meets peat and lite "I'm not sure hint of sweetness."
Taste is more of the same roast and peat with some nuttiness that heads toward a slight pecan and ever so light caramel.
Finish stays slightly sweet with coffee roast and peat brewing followed by a slightly slick nuttiness that then hints at vanilla. Mouthfeel is slightly chewy.
Quite good. Alcohol is subdued, no discernible heat. Smooth.

Update: 1/25/2016
Imperil Rye IPA: huge body with bitter roasted character, chocolate, maple syrup, smokiness. The puckering bitterness throughout is offputting. Would like to try variatis though: coconut, coffee, peanut butter, and barrel aged.
