Duclaw eXile X-1 Imperial Chocolate Rye Porter

I had my buddy pick up a bottle of Duclaw eXile X-1- Imperial Chocolate Rye Porter and I decided to share it at our weekly bottle share. I previously had the bourbon barrel aged version of this beer, but I wanted to try the base beer. The beer pours a black color with a frothy tan colored head. The aroma consists of rye, toasted malts, coffee, chocolate, and milk. The taste is toasted malts, coffee, rye spiciness, and an overall roasty flavor. The finish is pepper and most rye spiciness. The alcohol content is 8.0% ABV. This was a rather delicious beer, and it was only spoiled by the fact that I had the bourbon barrel aged version prior to this one.
