On tap at Bells. Pours a dark black with slight chocolate foam head. Aroma is an earthy roast malt. Very light chocolate and the taste is very smooth roast malt, some spice notes apparent. Reminds me a bit of a black lager. Very good!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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 thatís about it. This isnít good. The mouth feel is thin and watery with a soft carbonation and a lingeringly malty finish. Itís interesting. Not good.

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.

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.

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.
