Practically black beer with no head of note. 3.0

Roasted rye malts equipped with spicy and tart notes. A little coffee and oak leak through. 4.0

Spicy rye malts and some black malt. A little smoky and quite woody. Oak spirals, peat, black coffee, and full-on rye. Not bad. 3.5

Decent lingering carb. The body is a little thin. Well-hidden booze. 3.5

It's not much, but it was worth trying. Love to see fun locals on-tap. 3.5

Pours jet black, tan lacing for a head.

Smells of caramel, toast, a bit of cocoa, a hint of vanilla, and rye.

Tastes of light roasted coffee and oak with some caramel and a hint of rye.

Medium body with a slight carbonation on the tongue.

A great looking, great smelling stout that falls a little short in the taste department. Average mouthfeel as well. Makes it disappointing ultimately, wish there was more flavor and body. Not bad though, just left me wanting more.

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.

3.84/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

LOOK: Dark brown, bordering on black. Light off white head forms and leaves behind a trail of lace. No sediment, though the bottle reads : Unfiltered and Bottle Conditioned.

SMELL: Chocolates, sweet grains, roasted malts, smoke.

TASTE: Smooth flavor of dry roasted malts, citrusy hops, tangy yeast and a charcoal finish. As it warms, some spicy rye characteristics come into play with a subtle note of whiskey. Above all, very stoutish and roasted in its ways.

FEEL: On the lighter side of medium bodied. A bit thin, carbonation is very fine. Finishes with citrus, roast and rye.

OVERALL: Mild in its ways, but very agreeable, this was an easy drinking, well brewed beer from Lavery. I would be interested to see what age would do to this, I believe it would sour a good bit from the house yeast employed.

3.93/5  rDev +1.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Arrives with a modest cap topping the pitch black liquid; just a few dots of lacing left behind

Smell: Toasted black bread

Taste: Well-toasted black bread and Baker's chocolate, up front, with spicy rye and hop elements arriving at mid-palate; the roast takes over, after the swallow, and drives home the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Refreshing - really like the mouthfeel here; also like the way this one finishes very dry; the brewer knows how to brew a well attenuated beer

Serving type: on-tap

3.95/5  rDev +2.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

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.
