3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I’d like this to have a higher overall rating than a 3.5, because I do think it’s better than that. But, not much aroma, thin head that receded quickly. Sweet slightly thick flavor, not sure quite where the rye kicks in but it’s not your traditional roasty flavor. Pretty darn decent.
aroma is roasted grain. flavor is coffee, oatmeal, and some milk. a little thin on flavor. had a growler pour at home. not bad. koleminer20 (4171) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - NOV 6, 2016
On draft at Bells for All Stouts Day. The pour is a thin watery dark brown with a hefty bit of visibility through it. The aroma is nutty and spicy with a hint of malt and light bitterness. This is plain and not good. The flavor is equally disappointing. There is a light malt and a hint of spicy rye but that’s about it. This isn’t good. The mouth feel is thin and watery with a soft carbonation and a lingeringly malty finish. It’s interesting. Not good. malkyore (377) - - JAN 17, 2016
Rye in a stout is a little less noticeable than in an ipa. Totally a solid stout. Other than that, I dont know what to say. olenickj (119) - Michigan, USA - JAN 4, 2016

Tap, Eccentric Cafe, Kalamazoo, MI. Deep brown. Chocolate coffee aroma. Sweet, heavy roasted malt and some coffee. Long bitter finish.

Pours black with a medium tan head. Aroma starts with coffee, some chocolate, lightly roasted malt and a faint rye malt. Tastes of caramel malt, some light roastiness, coffee and a bit of rye malt-- a little watery. Medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel. mixmasterob (1060) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 28, 2015
Draught at Cypress Street. Black pour. Nice cocoa and roasty aroma with lots of depth. The rye added a welcomed spicy finish to this awesome stout. Up there with Kalamazoo for sure. Super tasty. Imaena (2359) - Maputo, MOZAMBIQUE - JAN 5, 2015
Draught. This is a nice spicy treat with lots of dry depth. Wish I could find this more often. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - DEC 21, 2014
