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.

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

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.

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.

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

I really hate being forced to write a review since thats not what i do. just let me rate the beer? anyway didnt like this. there was a very unpleasant bitterness that made this almost undrinkable. could just be an old bottle.

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.
