3.5/5 rDev -10%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Pours opaque black with brown highlights, crowned with a small, dark tan head that you can hear fizzing away to a ring around the glass.
Smell: I pick up on a roasted grain smell, a touch of coffee, and a rye spiciness. Perhaps a touch of sesame seed oil too... Unique nose on this stout.
Taste: Combines a roasted flavor, the spiciness of rye, and a slight sour tang. Starts strong with the coffee bitterness and rye, then finishes with a lactic note. Very interesting flavor!
Mouthfeel: Medium to heavy thickness with an oily mouthfeel. Like most of Bell's stouts, goes down really smooth.
Drinkability: Pretty good considering the unique flavor profile. I don't know if anybody else makes a rye stout, but this one's o.k.
Another of the November stouts...this is quite the interesting ride!

Draft at Bells. Pours dark brown/black with minimal head. Aroma is distinctive rye grain, citrus fruits. Taste is big hit of citrus, rye, smokey tones. Rye is the star and comes out nicely balanced. Delicious. This is trendy these days but Bells was out ahead of the curve and has produced another good variant here.
