3.73/5  rDev -3.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

22oz bomber given to me as a sample by my rep. Poured into a Chimay goblet.

AP: Nice solid black colour, looks like it may be a bit chewy (fingers crossed). Not much head though when poured. Just a dusting across the surface and around the rim. Some decent lacing on the sides of the glass.
AR: Wow, wasn't expecting this to be so chocolaty in aroma, but there it is. Not a sweet/milk chocolate, but cocoa or baking chocolate. Nice roasty notes as well with black bread. Little hint of coffee in the background. Not much complexity on the aromas, as this is about all I'm getting. No dark fruits, molasses or brown sugar to speak of. But, the aromas that are there are very nice.
T: A solid brew by the taste. Not great or fantastic, but solid. A good sipper for a cold/cool night. In addition to the above noted aromas I also get some spicy rye as well which mixes in quite well. The roastiness is more assertive in the taste, which is fine. Some Earthy bittering hops on the finish.
M: Low carbonation, not chewy as it may have appeared, medium bodied for a Stout and a rather dry finish.
OV: This is a solid Stout with the addition of the spicy rye adding a nice little dimension of depth to the typical Dry Irish Stout flavours. If the coffee notes were stronger I'd be enjoying this even more, but it's good. I'd have this again.

A: The beer is very dark brownish red in color (black when viewed from afar). It poured with a thin beige head that quickly died down, leaving delicate lacing covering the surface and a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of dark malts and spicy rye are present in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the rye is very much evident in the taste of this beer that contributes a light amount of spiciness from start to finish. Hints of dark roasted malts are also noticeable, particularly in the finish.
M: It feels early medium-bodied and slightly thin on the palate with a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I really liked the spicy nature of this beer as it wasn't just a one dimensional stout with roasted malt flavors. It is quite drinkable.

Pours pitch black with a tan, lasting head. Webbed lacing sticks.

The smell is of chocolate, coffee/dark malts with earthy notes and a touch of mint.

The taste is bittersweet - dark with roasted nuts, coffee and milk chocolate. There is a minty touch from the rye that gives an impression of mint chocolate chip. Finishes dry.

The carbonation fits the brew well. The body could have more heft, but I'm far from complaining. It is smooth and the finish lingers.

This is a nice dry stout. Good example of the style, with the addition of rye that works well, giving a refreshing minty character to it that is not over-done. Thumbs-up!

My bottle says 5.6% abv.

Pours a dark black color with light brown head that lingers and leaves a thick ring if lacing around the glass.
Smell is outstanding with strong coffee and cocoa.
Taste is excellent of course coffe and chocolate but not bitter. Slightly better than most stouts I've tried.
Medium bodied with the typical bitter coffee and cocoa aftertaste.
Overall very well brewed beer and definitely close to the top of my list.

I like the beer.Good taste and a great draft beer. Worth sipping and enjoying. Gotta be the right temp when served. I tasted the beer the first time at the Crossroads restaurant in Edinboro, PA. My comment length is t o short so I will add some additional stuff so it meets the comment field requirement for number of characters.
