Notes / Commercial Description:
Big, but not huge, this American Chocolate Rye Stout fires off a lot of coffee and chocolate notes. Balances well, but rides high on hop character at 60 IBU's while the Rye finishes it dry.

Conservative, beige head. Still, it leaves great sticky ring lace. Deep brown color where light passes only at the very edges of the glass.

Fresh smelling, deeply toasted malt aroma. Not quite creamy, but it's certainly smooth.

Dry, burnt toast flavor up front. Good bittering hop balance. Not much dark chocolate or coffee but this is still very flavorful. Reminds me of nearly burnt toast. Rather full busy for the style but the bubbles balance it out well.

Served in a tulip glass from bomber bottle purchased at brewery.

A: deep, dark black with two fingers of tan head that fades quickly.

S: smells of a stout with a hint of hops.

T: on first taste, this seems like a classic stout. However, the bitterness of the rye really comes through.

M: great dense feel.

O: unique stout that is worthy of a try.
