Bottle… Clear, very dark lager with ruby highlights and little to no head. The aroma puts forward chocolate, toasted cashews and a gentle dusting of espresso. Medium-bodied and creamy/silky with lively carbonation. Well-balanced chocolate and rye flavor. Finishes lightly bitter with rye dryness. daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 8, 2009
Bottle. Brown pour, small tan head. Sweet malts jump out quicky followed by some yeast, fruit and spices. The falvor is pretty good. Brown sugar, honey, milk chocolate and the smoothness is nice. Oakes says its from the Rye, so it must be! kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JAN 18, 2009

Appearance: black, dense tan head, thick drippy lace
Aroma: light roasted aroma, light earthyness
Flavor: big roasted malt flavor, touch of coffee from the roasted, lots of earthy character leaving behind bitterness, growing hint of caramel sweetness adds some balance to the roasted and earthyness, eventually the caramel sweetness grows until it takes over and provides perfect balance to the roasted

I would like to rerate this beer.
Clear mahogany with a tiny beige head. Sweet aroma with roasted nalt, caramel andchocolate notes. Sweet flavour with hard roasted and nearly burned malt with coffee and dark chocolate. Finished sweet. alexsdad06 (10387) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 21, 2009
22 oz. bottle. Pours a dark brown color with reddish highlights and a medium frothy beige head. The aroma is roasted malts with a hefty dose of chocolate. Additional hints of light fruitiness, caramel, spices,and grainy bread. The flavor has more roasted malts, smooth chocolate, rye is noticeable, nutty, and lightly fruity. The alcohol does come out as it warms as does some black coffee bitterness. Medium to full bodied, smooth.

I have been looking forward to trying this one. It proved to be a very nice and original brew.
Aroma is roasted, mocha, coffee and definite rye presence.
Taste, beer is thick, with rye aftertaste. Malty and a nice light bitter hoppy finish with good presence of rye.
There is nothing bad to say about this beer. Taste is very unique, the mix of dark roastiness and grilled coupled with rye and hops make this beer one unique and enjoyable brew. Skinnyviking (9569) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 20, 2008
Draught. Low and quickly disappearing brown heade. Clear dark brown body. Weak and sweet coffee aroma. Flaovr quite hoppy coffee. High carbonation and a long bitter aftertaste. 3fourths (9341) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 2, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 24, 2013 Draft. Deep brown, nearly black but there’s some tawny brown hues at the very bottom of the glass. Roast and heavy toasted black malt, burnt brown sugar, dry pipe tobacco and a light note of bourbon - honestly tastes much better than I expected. The nose is more of a simple toasted barley and straightforward rye, not as rich or complex as it is on the tongue, but overall it’s surprisingly good, could fool me into thinking it’s a foreign stout DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2009

Malt and grain aromas. Dark coloured smooth on the palate and malty with some bitterness and dryness in the finish. douglas88 (9176) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 4, 2008
Bomber shared by Eric. Pours out a very dark brown color with a bubbly light brown head. The aroma is very light, some roasted malts, and some sweet notes, perhaps maple syrup. The taste was also smooth and light, sweet hops, citrus like hop flavors, chocolates, and a grainy earthy malt. Pretty nice, but nothing really stood out. Not terrorizing, but nice.
