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.

650 ml bottle I received in a Untappd trade. No bottling date. Thin white head on top this dark brown- borderline black liquid. Aroma is chocolate grain and roast forward with mild caramel candy.

Base of this stout has a solid pine hop backbone that gives a very nice balance to the roasted malt and chocolate flavors. Texture is dry with a mild pine kick. Body is nice, fuller with a borderline creamy mouthfeel. This is nicely constructed, well made.

juiceisloose (1302) - Windermere, Florida, USA - AUG 9, 2015
22 oz bottle. Pours a dark chocolate brown that is nearly black and topped by a small layer of khaki colored foam that quickly recedes and leaves patches of lace on the glass. The aroma shows notes of dark roasted malts, coffee, baker’s chocolate, and spicy rye with some earthy hop bitterness in the back ground. The flavor follows with more dark baker’s chocolate and dry roasted coffee up front followed by the spicy rye and a nice earthy hop bitterness in the back. Medium bodied with balanced carbonation that leads to a dry, spicy rye finish. Nothing crazy, but a tasty and solid rye stout.

Nuffield (4050) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 4, 2015
Very successful beer that is easy to enjoy. Rich chocolate with a twang that says rye. The palate is good but not over the top. Enjoyable. On tap in Chicago.

ARH (1113) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 6, 2015
UPDATED: APR 7, 2015 On tap, poured into a shaker. The beer is a dark, almost opaque, brown-black topped by a soft, creamy, light brown head that has abundant retention and lacing. The aroma is a strong burnt toast and rye bread (burnt rye bread?) note with a light chocolate undertone. It’s a medium / medium-high bitter with a supporting, medium-light sweetness. The texture is somewhere between oily and syrupy with a soft, creamy carbonation. The body is full of roasted rye and dark chocolate notes that linger through the finish and leaves a spicy rye aftertaste (much rye!).

tmoreau (3624) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - APR 1, 2015
Shared bomber poured to snifters, showing a black/brown hue, with a presentable layer of off white/light tan head foam, and waves & spots of lacing. The nose was roasted & dry, with notes of coffee & baker’s chocolate, a little smoke, and a mildly disconcerting, but fleeting vegetal hint. Medium bodied, with average carbonation, the taste was similar, and included good potency to the roasted & earthy hop bitterness, and dry finish. Nothing off the charts, but decent.

This version strikes me as more back of tongue bitter. Which I don't care for here. Before and after that I like the base and nice dark khaki head. But the first beer from new brewery let's me down a little bit:( but you will have that! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
