Bottle. Poured dark brown color with an average tan head that mostly lasting with sticky legs and excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy sweet chocolate and tosted rye aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted dark sweet flavor with a medium to heavy dark sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a good smooth brew that exceeded my expecations.

Dogbrick (8516) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 12, 2013
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.

MartinT (8024) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 20, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Black grapes, berry jam, roasted cereals and resinous hops are only some of the flavor components which make this comforting beer so complex.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam protects the darkness, lacing nicely.
-Vanilla, dark chocolate and black pepper also add to the fun.
-The mouthfeel is rich yet very drinkable.
-A touch of acidity is found in the back.

On tap at the Milwaukee Avenue location.

deyholla (6861) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 7, 2011
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.

BVery (6842) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 11, 2012
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.

DrSilverworm (6818) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 6, 2013
22oz bottle, bottled 1/25/13. Medium body. Soft, moderate carbonation. Kind of dry. Dark clear brown color. Minimal off-white head. Few dots of lace. Toasty malts. Light chocolate, coffee in the nose. Little burnt malts, some herbal earthy hops / tobacco notes. Light coffee. Sweet taste, light bitter. More on the sweet side. OK stout, good amount of hops (though not as much as was in Rise). I’m just not really into the texture.

Black body with tan head. Toasted rye bread, tobacco, dry chocolate, deep roast aromas. Frothy light mouthfeel. Dry chocolate, burnt grain flavors with some pale maltage--decent
