Appearance: Arrives with a carbon black color; the beige head builds up to a two-finger cap; very good retention

Smell: Roasty tones with dark chocolate and a hint of coffee

Taste: Roast and chocolate, up front, with some coffee and hop bitterness developing, in the middle; similar flavors progress to the finish

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with moderate carbonation

Overall: A nice double stout but I didn't get much impact from the rye in the grist; would have expected it to make a distinctive impact but it didn't

Almost black in the glass with brown around the edges. A thick creamy brown head builds up and slowly falls down leaving lacing.

Roasty, sweet, raisins, brown sugar, dark chocolate.

Velvety smooth full mouthfeel.

Fresh bottle from spec’s. This listed at 11%. Does not work for the style. The texture of the mouthfeel, the dryness, balance of chocolate, hops, malt. Whole package not in synch or drinkable.
