Pours jet black, tan lacing for a head.

Smells of caramel, toast, a bit of cocoa, a hint of vanilla, and rye.

Tastes of light roasted coffee and oak with some caramel and a hint of rye.

Medium body with a slight carbonation on the tongue.

A great looking, great smelling stout that falls a little short in the taste department. Average mouthfeel as well. Makes it disappointing ultimately, wish there was more flavor and body. Not bad though, just left me wanting more.

This pours a nice dark inky looking black, with a small head, and a little bit of lacing.

This smells like rich dark chocolate, oats, rye spice, and grainy roasted malt.

This is the type of stout I'm often looking for when the world is overly filled with dessert sugar bomb stouts- it's grainy, bitter, and roasty in all the right ways. There's lots of rustic rye character, grainy and spicy, with bitter, almost charred roasted malt, dark chocolate, and bitter coffee. There's barely any sweetness, which works for me.

This is medium bodied, feels thicker than the lower ABV would suggest. It's pretty creamy and rich.

This is a really nice stout from these guys- just very well constructed.

A: The beer is very dark brownish red in color (black when viewed from afar). It poured with a thin beige head that quickly died down, leaving delicate lacing covering the surface and a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of dark malts and spicy rye are present in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the rye is very much evident in the taste of this beer that contributes a light amount of spiciness from start to finish. Hints of dark roasted malts are also noticeable, particularly in the finish.
M: It feels early medium-bodied and slightly thin on the palate with a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I really liked the spicy nature of this beer as it wasn't just a one dimensional stout with roasted malt flavors. It is quite drinkable.

A - Deep shade of blackness thick but not Imperial thick. Head is a 1/2 inch of mocha tint.
S - Mild spicy rye mixed with some roasty tones and chocolate malt. Mildly sweet smelling.
T - Rye is there giving it a good dry taste. Mild sweet chocolate malts mixed with a bit of coffee roasts. Not bad.
M - Medium bodied with some good chewy taste.

Overall a good rye based beer. Tasty.

Pours pitch black with a tan, lasting head. Webbed lacing sticks.

The smell is of chocolate, coffee/dark malts with earthy notes and a touch of mint.

The taste is bittersweet - dark with roasted nuts, coffee and milk chocolate. There is a minty touch from the rye that gives an impression of mint chocolate chip. Finishes dry.

The carbonation fits the brew well. The body could have more heft, but I'm far from complaining. It is smooth and the finish lingers.

This is a nice dry stout. Good example of the style, with the addition of rye that works well, giving a refreshing minty character to it that is not over-done. Thumbs-up!

My bottle says 5.6% abv.
