Bottle poured into a mug, creamy head of dark tan foam, long lasting retention. Color is black, can't see through it in the glass.

Dark roasty and milk chocolatey aroma.

Roasty and bitter upfront, long lasting bitter aftertaste. 52 IBU, and it's pretty present. Light chocolate and coffee flavors, mellow but well melded with an underlying earthy hoppyness. Medium bodied with a light tang to it. Overall pretty drinkable, would seek out on tap again.

Thanks Eric for this one!

Either you like rye or you don't. That will determine your rating for this.

12 ounce bottle into a snifter. Bottled 10/12/16, had 12/13/16.

Pours dark, near black and opaque, with a one inch foamy head and a fair amount of foamy lacing. Smells of rye, medium roast malts, chocolate, some vanilla, some coffee, caramel. A little smoke. Really nice aroma. The taste leads with lighter roasted malts than the nose, chocolate, rye, vanilla, some caramel and coffee, a little molasses. A light bitterness throughout. Smooth, somewhat creamy, well carbonated, good body for the style.

Great regular stout. The rye is the star, very prominent. Great aroma, lots of flavor, a well crafted beer. Well worth a purchase.
