    1st Taste: Sweet but not the normal malt flavor, perhaps the effect of the rye. Followed quickly by chocolate and brown sugar.

    Overall: Surprised at how mellow this brew was, being a rye based stout. It's got character, but none of the elements overwhelms the others. Perfect mouthfeel, not too light but could easily drink multiples of this brew. (Shocking that I could drink a few) Hops and alcohol levels are adequate, but in the background. Would love to see this brew on tap through the early winter months. I like it.

  • Poured clear into my pint glass. An inch of brown foam with a fair amount of retention and almost no lacing.

    Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, and slight rye.

    Taste is pretty much your normal stout with maybe a little more hops in the finish. Rye, I couldn't really detect any.

    The body is light, medium body with a perfect amount of carbonation.

    An easy drinking stout that is well balanced. Maybe since I expected more rye I really didn't detect in any aspect of the beer. I would have again. Enjoy!
