Full Pint Rye Rebellion
Full Pint Rye Rebellion. The beer pours a black color with a brown filmy head. The aroma consists of chocolate, vanilla, rye, and toasted malts. The taste is bold and dry with lots of dark chocolate, hints of vanilla, and a rye spiciness that peeks through on the finish. Caramel, coffee, and toasted malts also present, and the aftertaste has a bourbon dryness. The alcohol content is 11.0% ABV. This was an excellent beer from this young Western PA brewer, and I was really impressed with it. The bourbon was present but nicely subdued in the background with a wonderful compliment of chocolate and vanilla flavors.
