I really hate being forced to write a review since thats not what i do. just let me rate the beer? anyway didnt like this. there was a very unpleasant bitterness that made this almost undrinkable. could just be an old bottle.

Practically black beer with no head of note. 3.0

Roasted rye malts equipped with spicy and tart notes. A little coffee and oak leak through. 4.0

Spicy rye malts and some black malt. A little smoky and quite woody. Oak spirals, peat, black coffee, and full-on rye. Not bad. 3.5

Decent lingering carb. The body is a little thin. Well-hidden booze. 3.5

It's not much, but it was worth trying. Love to see fun locals on-tap. 3.5

22oz bomber given to me as a sample by my rep. Poured into a Chimay goblet.

AP: Nice solid black colour, looks like it may be a bit chewy (fingers crossed). Not much head though when poured. Just a dusting across the surface and around the rim. Some decent lacing on the sides of the glass.
AR: Wow, wasn't expecting this to be so chocolaty in aroma, but there it is. Not a sweet/milk chocolate, but cocoa or baking chocolate. Nice roasty notes as well with black bread. Little hint of coffee in the background. Not much complexity on the aromas, as this is about all I'm getting. No dark fruits, molasses or brown sugar to speak of. But, the aromas that are there are very nice.
T: A solid brew by the taste. Not great or fantastic, but solid. A good sipper for a cold/cool night. In addition to the above noted aromas I also get some spicy rye as well which mixes in quite well. The roastiness is more assertive in the taste, which is fine. Some Earthy bittering hops on the finish.
M: Low carbonation, not chewy as it may have appeared, medium bodied for a Stout and a rather dry finish.
OV: This is a solid Stout with the addition of the spicy rye adding a nice little dimension of depth to the typical Dry Irish Stout flavours. If the coffee notes were stronger I'd be enjoying this even more, but it's good. I'd have this again.

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.
