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.

ARH (776) - 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 (2824) - 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

Bomber from the brewery. Strong chocolate and cocoa on the nose. Black with a brown head which sticks around nicely. Really great flavor, nice hoppy stout. Would love to drink this again. No real alcohol flavoring.

Mindwarp (123) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 15, 2015
From notes-On tap, pours a typical dark color with a thin tan head. Aroma of burnt malts with a hint of chocolate. Taste followed the nose really good. Had to have 2 of these on the tour, a good Rye Stout.

Bomber. I was hesitant to pick this one up, usually rye is a red flag for me. But boy am I glad I did. Huge chocolate note. Unsweetened baker cocoa. Coffee roast. There is a touch of rye in there but it’s really in the background. More flavor and thickness than you expect from a 7%er.

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.
