3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Decent, but uninspiring. Nice balance in the flavors with a touch of rye. However, somewhat thin and too mild. Needs more oomph.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is roasty malt with a slight amount of rye spiciness in the nose.
Flavor is well balanced between a roasty maltiness expected in a stout, a slight spiciness from the rye, and a delicate hoppy bitterness in this finish. Quite fine.
Black-brown pour with ruby-red highlights. Dense tan head. Moderate lacing.
Medium mouthfeel. Medium carbonation.
Delicious, well balanced and slightly spicy rye stout. A very nice blend of grains in this offering from Revolution Brewing.
A little hit of spicy rye highlights this fine stout. A very nice balance.

Bomber to oversized snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good for the style; a dark cola with foamy beige head that dissipates into lacing. Smells solid; dark malt, chocolate, roast, and a bit of spice. Tastes like it smells with a good mouthfeel and a nice light rye tingle. A good spin on the style.

Draught at Three Aces. Poured black with minimal tan head. Light malty rye aroma. Almost smooth with good stout taste. A faster drinking stout.

Pours up a a gorgeous brown black with thick tan head. Nice lacing with the first sip & with the last sip a nice inich of foam remained. Straight up coffee malt aroma. Coffee flavor continued with roasted sweet malt. Slight rye at finish but only barely. Overall highly enjoyed.

Lovely example of the rye stout as a style. Slightly spicy on the finish due to rye, lower carbonation than expected. Pours midnight black in center with ruby red and brown hues on the edge. From large format bottle.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at The Daily Growler. Pours a nearly opaque brownish-black color with a medium beige head that dissipates slowly to a film. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Medium body with a roasty character and flavors of dark malt, coffee and subtle rye. The finish is chocolate malt with a touch of spicy rye left behind. Above average overall.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle: pours a super dark brown color, with a small tan head. Aroma of roasty chocolate. The flavor is a wonderful mellow, chocolate. some mellow fruit. I like this beer a lot, but was hoping for a bit of the spiciness from the rye. It’s there in the finish, but not as much as was in my mind when I first picked it up. oh well... still good beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz. Bottle. Pours a jet black that has no transparency. A finger and a half of light brown, chocolatey head that leaves no lacing. Nose is incredibly boozy and roasty up front with hints of chocolate, caramel and plum. Taste is very roasty and malty mixed with a very mellow hop bite. This beer has a subtle chocolate milk flavor with a nice espresso finish. A very good stout.
