Dark black in color, clear with a thin head. Easy drinking Oatmeal stout with a dry finish. Litle rye in the flavor this was quite nice.

poured from tap into a pint glass at revolution. Pours a dark chocolate color with a small and foamy head. Very good depth with rich aromas of espresso beans, cacao nibs, and roasted malts. Full bodied with a good smooth feel. The finish is a bit clipped though and it’s slightly lacking on the mid with notes of espresso beans, roasted malts and a good amount of dark chocolate. This was a really good rye beer. There was a good amount of malts on both the aromas and flavors. Bigger without being too big.

Had this on cask at the brewpub. Huge head. Very dark pour. Aroma of roasted coffee. Tons of roast in flavor. Ok mouth, but slightly thin. Huge roast through the whole beer but not too heavy. Nice and balanced and very easy drinking.

Tap at Revolution. Very dark pour with a nice white head. Aroma is roasted malts, licorice, and mild chocolate. Smooth palate. Taste is an easy drinking roasted coffee with a touch of chocolate. Delicious.

Over powering coffee scent, taste is a really strong coffee flavor. It is almost like a spiked coffee, similar to the Eugene. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hand pump at the brewery. expected low carbonation with a small fine-bubbled brown head. robust, layered, striking nose of starchy grains, char / black patent / burnt grains with abundant chocolate and cocoa roast. medium body and rigid malt texture. rich, robust, full-flavored and awesomely balanced front to back.

Enjoyed on tap at Revolution Brewery in Chicago, IL while hanging out with my bandmates who offended our waitress within the first 30 seconds of sitting at our table. Appearance pitch black with tan head that rims around the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, definitely nutty, very nice. Taste is very smooth and delicious, chocolatey in the front with nice burning sensation in the back end. Great profile and flavors, carbonation level is good, nice bitterness. Exceptionally good and solid.

Growler shared by Alex. Thanks! Pours a nice darker murky dark brown pour, dark and brooding with a small brownish head that dies to a film, laces small. Ruby dark tea bottom and edges. Aromas are rye malts, chocolate, roast, and toast. Some more bakers cocoa, some coffee, creamy sweetness but firm roast and toast. Coffee starts to assert itself. Initial is medium bodied, with good roast and toast, a subtle carbonation with some coffee, cocoa, and rye. More cocoa, caramel, and toffee. Touches of toast, and roast. Cocoa, touches of rye, faint spice, dry roast comes into play. Finish is some sweetness, dry roast, toast. Some rye, cocoa, lightens up bodywise into the backend. Solid palatable stout with a touch of a twist, good flavors. Perhaps it suffered a point due to "old growler" feel.

I had this both on tap and on cask at the brewpub...Pours a very dark brown with blood red highlights. A light tan head, poor lacing ok retention...The aroma is really sweet figs and rye, complex and intriguing...The taste is noting short of awesome and insanely awesome, malty caramel and dark fruits then out of nowhere awesome chocolate, roasted coffee and nuts, unreal...Thick and lasting feel, so easy to drink. By far the best beer Cibak has done to date, coming it coming.

On tap at the brewpub. Poured a cloudy brown head with a brown head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma had a combination of chocolate, roasted malts and rye with just a bit of molasses. Flavor started with roasted malts and rye with a bit of chocolate balancing the finish.
