3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled from a 0.65l bottle @ Top Hops (BA) Bottle Share. This is a deep dark brown one - near black in the glass and it has a small bubbly beige top that’s only leaving minimal lacings down the sides. The nose is minty, some chocolate, still coffee, espresso and chocolate cake frosting. Nice! It has a soft carbonation level and a thin oily mouthfeel. Really nice flavors. Some herbal coffee, chocolate and cocoa nibs. Lingering in the aftertaste. Quite a nice one! Actually, I haven’t had a bad or boring beer in way to long now. 15.06.2013

Tap at 2013 GTMW, pours black with a nice light brown head and some lacing in the glass, the aroma was pretty sweet with a good amount of chocolate and coffee coming through, the rye wasn’t very noticeable to me on the nose but was really present in the flavor, sweet chocolate front end with spice and rye in the finish with some hops in there as well, pretty different but enjoyable.

Really impressive stout from Half Acre. Pours very thick and oily (8.3 degrees baume, natch) with a thin but bubbly brown head. Rye finish adds some slight spice, generously hopped as the label promises. Delicious!
