This one was extremely difficult to uncork, but was the first carbed bomber I've had out of Dark Horse. Left this one at room temp since 4Elf until this evening,
Very dark brown body, near black. Small tan head, moderate to low retention. Low lacing,
Aroma is light. Some sweetness.
Sweet, roasty. Light Chocolate and vanilla. Some spicyness, from the yeast? Rye doesn't seem prominent.
Overly light body. Hint of alcohol. Smooth but not full.
Somewhere between a regular and imperial porter. Good but a little bit of a let down.

poured into tulip glass.
reviewed from notes taken on 1/8/13.
bottle# 25 of 396.
Appearance: black bodied beer with thin tan cap.
Smell: chocolates and lots of rye notes flowing from this beer. A touch of smoke and also some graham crackers.
Taste: a sweeter porter. The rye is also pretty noticable. A touch of smoke in the finish mixing with chocolates.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel thats just a touch thin. No preceived booze at all.
Overall: Really unique. I have never had a rye porter before and it was enjoyable overall. I really cant think of many breweries that have made a rye porter before. Creative use of rye in a beer by Dark Horse!

Pours an opaque deep brown with garnet highlights and a solid quarter inch milk chocolate head that dissipates into a thin layer of foam.
Roast malt, chocolate, and malted milk balls comprise the aroma. There's a hint of alcohol, and a bit of tar.
Rye carries throughout the flavor profile, which is dominated by chocolate and roasted malt. It's a touch sweet, with some dark fruit character. The finish is a little dry and bitter.
Body is very smooth, with minimal carbonation, a touch of astringency, and substantial alcohol warmth.
Didn't know what to expect of a chocolate rye porter. Very chocolate dominant, with nuances of rye adding an interesting element. Good brew, but nothing to write home about.
Serving type: on-tap
