Full Pint Brewing Rye Rebellion
Full Pint Brewing Rye Rebellion is an American Double/Imperial Stout aged in Rye Whiskey Barrels, 11% ABV. Big thanks to Matt L. for the bottle!
This is a good looking beer, classic black to extreme dark brown in color, one finger tan head on an aggressive pour. This smells really nice, big roasted malt and grain, a little sweet cream, a little chocolate and vanilla. Unfortunately I’m not getting any whiskey barrel on the aroma. The taste follows suit almost perfectly: roasted malts, chocolate, vanilla, graham crackers, dry spicy rye, a little whiskey and alcohol burn on the finish. Nice medium creamy mouth-feel on this one.
I really wish there was more of the barrel in the taste and aroma, but this is still a really tasty Imperial Stout. I’d try to get a hold of a bottle or two if you can, it’s pretty damn good.
