Notes / Commercial Description:
This is one easy drinking stout! Roasted barley and rye provide a complex roasty aroma and flavor with underlying nutty notes, while Nelson Sauvin and Sonnet hops add just enough bitterness to perfectly achieve balance on the palate.

Bottled Jan 25 2013
A- This beer pours a dense black body with a faint garnet hint at the base of the glass with a creamy bubble tan head that last a bit.

S- The mellow dry char malt aroma has a yeast aroma to follow with some coffee roasted black malt hints coming thru as it warms.

T- The dry char black malt has some chalky notes and a watery rye zing in the finish that takes on a slight tartness as it warms. There is a faint smoky black malt taste that lingers but without any bitterness.

M- The medium-full mouthfeel has a gentle fizz but no alcohol heat.

O- This beer is thin but pleasant tasting with it could use a bit more character or depth. It drinks pretty quick but one pint is enough.

Dark brown to black in color with a very dark garnet highlight when held to the light. Nice light brown head after the pour and almost solid film of foam for all 22 ounces.

Roasty malts, a little creamy, and some rye like spice notes make up a solid stout aroma.

Chewy palate indeed. But not overwhelming, a smooth, chewy palate makes for a nice session stout. Good roasted malt flavors, dark coffee and black rye bread crust. The finish is just a little tinny. Good beer overall, would buy again.

Purchased from brew pub. Bomber bottle.

Appearance- black licorice pour, 1 finger dark white head settles quickly.

Aroma- licorice, toffee, molasses, bourbon. Slight roast of dark coffee but more sweet.

Taste- caramel, coffee, toffee, molasses. Dry,limited roast. Hops are hard to pick up. Definitely feels like a malty profile.

MF- Medium body, clean, soft smooth finish. Drinks easy.

Thought this would be more of a stout but feels like a complex porter. Complex malty profile that's easy to drink. Beer takes a whole to settle in and pick up the complex flavors. Awesome.

Went to revolution brewpub last night for good food and good beer. Definitely enjoy stouts, and I had to see how this rye stout would hold up.

A- Jet black, with a dark brown hue. About 1 finger worth of mocha foam, with no head retention. There was also no lacing.

S- Can smell the light rye malts and small amounts of coffee and toffee. Not very aromatic.

T- There was some light coffee bitterness, with some bakers chocolate and toffee. Also can taste some sugar and was slightly nutty.

M- Creamy, smooth, and moderate body. Moderate carbonation makes this an easy drinker and feels amazing on the palate.

O- Overall a good beer. Even though the presentation was bland and nothing special, the taste was very nice and the mouth feel was even better. Really enjoyed this.
