3.94/5 rDev +1%
12 oz bottle pours a near-black color with a few brown highlights around the edges. Retention is just ok and lacing spotty.
Nose is whole grain bread and chocolate....almost like a Nutella sandwich on whole wheat. In other words, the rye and dark malt are both prevalent. I dont get much hops here though.
Taste is much smoother than I thought it would be, the rye and chocolate malt flavors compliment each other well. There is a bit of raisin fruitiness that is nice. Roast comes out as it warms...got a nice complexity thing going on here. Good stuff, another good offering in the FtB series.

S: deeply roasted malt; bittersweet chocolate; a little earthiness;
T: chocolate up front, mixing with coffee on the finish; low to moderate bitterness;
M: medium bodied; low to moderate carbonation;
O: well balanced; a bit too chocolately for me and I would have liked a little more bitterness, but good none the less;
