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.

A specialty brew. Grab it when you see it. 7% ABV.

Bottle is probably 6-7 months old. Pours murky brown/black with tall tan head. Aroma is stale coffee, rose petal, some chocolate. Taste is sweet cocoa nib with a bit of bitter coffee and floral notes as well. Got even more complex as it warmed. Enjoyable.

hopscotch (9558) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 20, 2014
Bottle... Pours dark brown with a small, creamy, khaki head. The malty, vinous aroma boasts dark chocolate and red wine. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and modest carbonation. The flavor is deeply roasted and bitter - 85% cacao chocolate stands out. Lengthy, scorched, burnt-cocoa finish. Bottle courtesy of newcigarz!

keepersj12 (2761) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - NOV 6, 2014
This is a very special brew. Starts out like a sweet stout but the hops take a bigger profile after a while. Perfect look, black with a tan head. Very good indeed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from craft ale house. Pours black with a half inch of khaki foam. Has a bit of citrus on the nose. Leaves a lot of lacing in the glass. Leans slightly to hoppiness on the tongue. Finishes clean. Solid effort.

Huhzubendah (2668) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 18, 2014
The beer is black with an inch of beige cap. The aroma brings big dark roast, chocolate, light spice, a touch of hops. The flavor offers a big roasted malt and chocolate bill with hints of coffee and smoke. Rye character emerges mid to late palate and really adds a nice touch. Medium to full bodied and smooth. A delicious beer. I’d have this again.
