Tasting – Rye Cask Foreign Export Stout

Standard

RYE CASK FOREIGN EXPORT STOUT 8% ABV on tap

APPEARANCE: Dark black with brown undertones.  High level of carbonation that made a long lasting head with a very thick creamy off brown color

NOSE: Very forward dark chocolate nose, with the oaky cask scent underneath the chocolate.  Real subtle marshmallow aspect

TASTE: Very malty with huge chocolate up front followed by an even bigger oak in the mid palate.  The end is long, a little cloying, but very creamy and delicious.  The oak lingers too long, but there is real subtle peanut butter flavor.

OVERALL: This beer could definitely use some age, but a very good beer.  The oak adds a great complexity, but overpowers some of the rye aspects.
8.5/10
