poured into tulip glass.

reviewed from notes taken on 1/8/13.

bottle# 25 of 396.

Appearance: black bodied beer with thin tan cap.

Smell: chocolates and lots of rye notes flowing from this beer. A touch of smoke and also some graham crackers.

Taste: a sweeter porter. The rye is also pretty noticable. A touch of smoke in the finish mixing with chocolates.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel thats just a touch thin. No preceived booze at all.

Overall: Really unique. I have never had a rye porter before and it was enjoyable overall. I really cant think of many breweries that have made a rye porter before. Creative use of rye in a beer by Dark Horse!

Pours an opaque deep brown with garnet highlights and a solid quarter inch milk chocolate head that dissipates into a thin layer of foam.

Roast malt, chocolate, and malted milk balls comprise the aroma. There's a hint of alcohol, and a bit of tar.

Rye carries throughout the flavor profile, which is dominated by chocolate and roasted malt. It's a touch sweet, with some dark fruit character. The finish is a little dry and bitter.

Body is very smooth, with minimal carbonation, a touch of astringency, and substantial alcohol warmth.

Didn't know what to expect of a chocolate rye porter. Very chocolate dominant, with nuances of rye adding an interesting element. Good brew, but nothing to write home about.
