COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A robust smokey stout made to pair with cold weather, the smell of wood fires and fallen leaves. This stout is made using chocolate rye malt, creating a smooth chocolatey flavor that pairs will the light smokiness of traditional beech smoked malt. Great with food, especially steaks, stews, and BBQ.

Write up made it sound fantastic...taste, unfortunately, didn’t measure up. Quite weak for a stout. Not much there.

This on the other hand was quite nice, just enough smoke, plenty of malt, some hops and a little bite. Dark and rich enough I filled the Growler.

Drake (8613) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Bottle shared at the 8th Richmond Industry Gathering, 12/1/13. Pours a clear copper color with a large foamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of rye, smoke, mild earth and toast. The taste is chocolate, rye and a smoky finish. Thin-medium bodied. Decent.

bubbleflubber (1832) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - NOV 9, 2013
On draught at Barley's Taproom in Asheville, this pours the deepest mahogany, almost opaque black into the glass, with a nice tan head that leaves soapy lacing. A sweetly smoked, roasted, almost herbal nose ensues. Flavors are of roasted coffee, smoked grains, herbs, faint legumes and burnt caramel, finishing with a smoked sweet grain. The mouthfeel is silky with a medium-full body and semi-active palate. A nice winter warmer, this sweet smoked stout goes down well in cold evenings. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Cask at the Black Friday Cask Festival, Triangle Brewing, Durham. Another solid offering from Mystery, who seem to be finding their way more consistently of late. Nice pour, slightly oily mouthfeel. The basic flavors are very well realized, and the smokey choc did go down nicely on a brisk afternoon. Interestingly enough, though, I got the distinct impression of some dark cherry and vanilla in there as well, nicely complementing the whole. Not sure if that was an un-advertised addition for this event or not, but I dug it regardless.

OldGrowth (2675) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - DEC 5, 2012
At Tylers Apex. Good aroma, sweet, smoke. Chocolate, moderate smoke, dark blackish brown color, ok head, little to no lace. Sweet flavor. Heavier body, oily viscous mouthfeel, sweet finish . Good, probably best I’ve had from Mystery as I think about it. Nice mix in aroma of sweet and smoke. Flavor more sweet.than smoke, nice chocolate.

maxwelldeux (3681) - Everett, Washington, USA - NOV 8, 2012
Draught. Pours an almost black color with very little head. This beer is very smooth. Subtle roasted and chocolate notes to it and a very easy and creamy finish. Great brew.
