Notes/Commercial Description:
Big, but not huge, this American Chocolate Rye Stout fires off a lot of coffee and chocolate notes. Balances well, but rides high on hop character at 60 IBU's while the Rye finishes it dry.

Baume chugs from the bottle the color of coffee and creates a cascade effect as it settles. Filling the glass it's chalkboard black with no hope of a peek through the body. The beige head instantly becomes silky and grows to a finger in height and never settles. Velvet foam coats the glass until the last gulp. This is a really great looking beer.

The nose is rich and full of depth. Coffee is first to leap from the glass and is quickly met with unsweetened chocolate shavings. A handful of overripe, macerated dark berries show up in the middle. An undercurrent of spicy rye compliments the chocolate and coffee. A good dose of hops wrap it up with solid pine and faint citrus.

Spicy rye, again, has it's fingerprints all over this beer but what's really unique is the abrupt pine character. Coffee with a pinch of sugar hits the tongue first then segues into unsweetened chocolate and a moderate roast. The final third is big, commanding pine notes, a touch of grapefruit, and roasty grains. Like I mentioned earlier, Baum is a very unique offering.

There's a moderate weight to the body with carbonation active enough to make for a quick moving beer. With all that said, and me nitpicking, I would prefer either a little heavier body or softer carbonation. The roast lingers as does a hop bitterness growing to moderate in intensity.

Baume has always been a highly enjoyable beer in my eyes and one I pick up multiple times each year. There's great depth, especially with the spicy rye, and a bold hopping. Good looks, great flavors, and high drinkability wraps up this 7% stout. Here's to Half Acre!

Poured into snifter.

A Pours runny black. Leaves about one finger of khaki head. Slight carbonation.

S Black licorice is heavy. Rye for sure. Subtle hints of caramel and cocoa. Dark fruit, plum and raisin.

T Right up front is rye. Coffee beans are very prominent as well. Extremely bitter and hoppy. Both the grainy rye and bitter coffee linger. Very potent are both of these flavors.

M Pretty thin for the style. Finishes rough, but in a good way. Dry. The bitterness and roasted coffee leave a tremendous aftertaste.

O Very enjoyable. Rye beers are so unique and this is a good example. The flavors, mostly roasted coffee and rye, mesh well. The aroma hinted at a little more than was there in the flavor. Powerful aftertaste. I like a good dry bitter stout (though this comes close to a Scotch ale) every now and then. Glad I had it.

3.88/5  rDev -1.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured into pint glass. Very minimal brown head built up and which broke down quickly. No remaining foam at the surface and no lacings present along the glass.

Beer is jet black in color; absolutely dark; no light penetration.

Aroma is fantastic! Smelled kind of like cookies, maybe Oreo's. Also plenty of vanilla! This is probably the most impressive aspect of this beer. It just smells so rich. Makes me wonder what to expect upon first sip.

Taste-wise it's fantastic but the aroma is deceptive as I expected a touch of sweetness. But upon sipping it, it is actually more bitter. Tasted unsweetened chocolate; the kind of stuff you use for baking. Also some black coffee. I'm not sure how rye is supposed to stand out in a stout but possibly it contributes to the bitterness. The bitterness is not overpowering; it just lingers around in the mouth; it doesn't wreck your palate like a serious IPA can. Flavors overall are not that complex but it's still good.

This beer has a light to medium body. Nothing that sinks in your mouth like imperial stouts. It does have that nice creamy mouthfeel. Fantastic.

Overall this beer is pretty sessionable in my opinion. It clocks in at only 6.5% (stated on the bottle) so a bomber is easy to finish up myself. I like the flavors but I love smell!

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.75

A: Almost completely opaque black with a thin tan head that dissipates almost instantly. I love the color but the head does not instill confidence in this one off the bat.

S: Hoooo yeah. Rye hits you straight away, followed by a nice creamy coffee/chocolate scent. Burnt malt and generic hops round it out. Complex and fantastic.

T: A strong burnt malt flavor along with a generic bitterness, followed by the rye and sweet chocolaty malts i was really looking for. There's way more bitterness then I wanted here, and it's not a peppery rye bite like I expected. I wish they would have let the rye shine through a bit more.

M: Excellent carbonation and a creamy medium to full body. Goes down real nice.

O: This is so nearly a good beer. Nailed the appearance, scent, even mouthfeel but the generic bitterness held it back. Next time I want a beer like this, I'll be reaching for Wookey Jack.

Thanks to queens1130 for sharing this one at GRG1313's tasting.

Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, rye, and cocoa aromas. Taste is much the same with rye and cocoa flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that smells better than it tastes in my opinion.

4.24/5  rDev +7.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A- poured a dark rich solid brown color. 2 1/2 finger dark tan head with wonderful lacing creeping up the sides of the glass. Settles to a thick film for most of the drink.

S- the rye malts dominate this aroma. Under it is a lightly bitter notes of milk chocolate and espresso. There is a peppery quality and maybe a hint if earth.

T- again, the rye dominates the taste. The chewy, slightly peppery flavor of rye hits you first and lingers. A bit of the milk choloate creeps through. I could detect a roasted grain note. I didn't get any coffee flavor at all. There's an almost smokey note there as well. Very mild hops on the tail, but the rye flavor really over takes any subtle nuances.

M- the mouthfeel was creamier & smoother than expected. Not a whole lot if carbonation. The finish was moderate & dry.

O- a nicely done rye stout (if you don't like the flavor it scent if rye, why drink a rye stout after all?). I would have like a bit more layering of flavors, but overall a very solid beer.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours black…mocha colored head formed about a finger width thick and remains, tight and a touch thinner…the brew settles, losing a bit of life after about 15 minutes…overall though, an inviting brew...(4/5)

Smell: Tons of milk chocolate emanating from my glass…roasted malts, oatmeal and a touch of peppery rye round things out…I do get a little citrus hops coolness , but this is a malt driven vehicle for sure…again, very inviting…(4/5)

Taste: Burnt, creamy, roasted malts coat my tongue in awesomeness right off the bat…chocolate, oatmeal, coffee and a noticeable peppery rye bite show themselves in the middle phase and linger throughout…there’s not an overly noticeable hops presence, though that certainly isn’t a knock…this thing is rich and flavorful, very much a classic American stout…(4.25/5)

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body, with very light carbonation for a stout I’d say…mildly chewy and robust with malts, it’s smooth on the palate and finishes somewhat crisply…a hint of lemony citrus hops shows in the after taste…(3/5)

Overall: This beer is fantastic…I’ve been digging the rye ales and this continues the trend…very much a rich, traditional stout, the rye adds a peppery bite that separates this from others and makes it rather memorable…I can see why Half Acres’ serious followers favorite this one…it is really good…Baume’s mouthfeel leaves a bit to be desired, there really is no carbonation and with all that wonderful flavor, that’s a disappointment…other than that, this is a fantastic brew that is worthy of searching out…stop by their beer store and pick a couple up, one won’t be enough…(4/5)

3.74/5  rDev -5.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

650ml bottle poured into a Half Acre holiday snifter.

Pours a nice deep cola brown, almost black in color, a thin brown head head appears, almost a finger high which recedes quickly leaving a bit of film atop the beer and some light sticky lace. The aroma is very light, toasted dark barley, a bit of roasted coffee and light bittersweet chocolate with a touch of prickly rye that lingers behind. The beer is much more impactful on the tongue, lots of spicy rye, bitter dark chocolate with a nice amount of dark malted grain that lingers behind. The body is surprisingly full and lively, prickly on the tongue that coats the mouth fairly well. The finish is a touch too abrasive from the carbonation and very dry.

Verdict: A nice easy stout from Half Acre, it's not in your face, but it doesn't hide anything either, very sessionable and enjoyable as a nightcap. After having this and Hearths Ablaze, I am really beginning to enjoy their lighter American Stouts.

3.73/5  rDev -5.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours out about equal parts black and brown. Light brown head, .33" in depth. Average lacing in terms of stickiness. Head retention was around average as well.

Mellow aroma, chocolate malt, roast were the preminent aromas, I was searching for rye, but it just wasn't within my sensory perception abilities at that point. Perhaps the tinge of herbal greenness witin the aroma is what the rye lends, but it wasn't at all clear to me what was giving off said aroma.

The taste and mouthfeel in fact corroborate the claim of rye. It comes across as both hops and rye malt, not really spicy I'd say because of the greater percentage of barley, and sheer amount of it to make a stout of this heft, but nonetheless, perceptible beyond its lacking aroma. Caramel and tofffee intrusions, we're starting to get slightly complex here. Rye, herbs, roast, caramel, toffee, spice. . . mouthfeel finished dry, not spicy or thick. Smoother than most rye beers. Not too heavy on the chocolate all the way through, even as it warmed. Slightly bitter, slightly ashy, even citrusy at times. Definitely complex, but not for the sake of being so.

Solid effort.

Appearance: Black with half finger creamy mocha head.

Aroma: Roasted, burnt, and chocolate malts. A tiny touch of hops.

Taste: Roasted, burnt, dark chocolate malts. Little rye and a tiny hint of its spiciness. Little pine and floral. Some caramel as well.

Mouthfeel: Unfortunately a bit lacking. It is a little thin. Some malts and hops bitterness. Carbonation fits. Smooth. Roasted dark chocolate aftertaste.

Overall: I like the flavors, but it could use some more rye. Wish it was thicker, too. I would have this again.

On tap at the brewery, served into a 12 oz snifter.

A: Dark brown with a small, light tan head, quickly dissipates, good lacing though.

S: Rye malts and spicey, some piney hops.

T: Rye malts and piney, floral hops present throughout, not as roasty as I'd expect for a stout. Bitter finish, hint of dark chocolate.

M: Moderate carbonation, smooth body, very drinkable, slightly dry.

O: Very different, a light, dry stout with a different take. Not as complex as it could be, but certainly off the beaten path. Probably not a beer I'd frequent but definitely enjoyed.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Black bodied stout with a small brownish head. Low retention but strong creamy lacing remains on the glass. Roasty bittersweet chocolate aroma, hint of rye, some hopping evident in the smell as well; I get bitter citrusy and floral notes wafting around under the more prominent and typical stout characteristics.

Complex flavors; good roastiness and dark chocolate flavor; spicy, vaguely mineral quality imparted by the rye; again notes of citrus hops lurk around the periphery; late emerging espresso flavor. Medium body, med-high carbonation that’s pretty lively for the style. Retains some smoothness in the mouthfeel nevertheless.

This is a pretty nice stout that hits some unusual notes with the rye and more prominent hops than you’d expect. Not the usual fare and a nice change-up from that. Definitely worth a flyer.

22oz bottle into a tulip. Half Acre's first bomber release.

A: Handsome-looking stout - blackish body with a nice, dense chocolate-colored head.

S: Coffee beans and slightly citric old hoppiness, roasted grain.

T: Some lingering hoppy bitterness and dry rye grain, mild chocolate and coffee, roast, a bit of citrus.

M: Thick-bodied with moderate carbonation.

O: Pretty enjoyable stout - the rye and hops are a bit bracing, even after the aging, but I think it works with the beer.

Thanks for this one Jay!

A: Pours near black with a finger or two of light brown foam that slowly faded into a fuzzy film and collar. Tiny spots of lace were left.
S: Very smoky with strong notes of rye and earthy hops.
T: Huge and predominate flavors of rye. This is definitely a rye lovers beer. Spicy, earthy and grainy all around with hints of chocolate, vanilla, caramel as an afterthought. Hops are bitter, earthy and herbal. The rye by far dominates.
M: Frothy carbonation, medium-full body, full mouthfeel, foamy and airy.
O: Super spicy. For what it is it’s awesome, but you gotta love rye. Thanks again jbck109.

On-tap at Fountainhead for the Half Acre/Perennial Event.

A - Pours black, light tan head, wisps.

S - Rye up front, dark chocolate, dry roast notes, and hops. Pretty straight-forward and that's exactly what I was expecting.

T - More of the same...lots of rye, roast, toasted, malts, and dark chocolate bitterness. Alcohol is there for 7%, but this beer is very fresh so I can't knock it too hard for that. Perhaps a little too much rye and hops for me, which fatigues my palate a bit.

M - Medium to full body, rich, creamy, good carbonation, dry roasted finish.

O - A nice stout, but not something I could drink a lot of. The rye and hops are just a bit too much for me (even though I love both), and I think I'd rather have a porter or brown then go back to this when I'm in the mood for something dark. Decent.

22 oz bottle served in a DFH signature glass. 2012 vintage.

A: Pours a thick dark black with a one finger khaki colored head forming on the pour. The head recedes to a thin film and ring. Splotchy sheets of lace are left on the glass.

S: Big notes of chocolate and rye bread are very present up front. Some dark fruits and green leaf hops are present on the finish.

T: Rye bread spiciness and the bready malt flavors that accompany show themselves up front. The chocolate malts and general roasted flavors shine in the mid palate. The finish is mild hop bitterness.

M: Medium to heavier bodied with a medium carbonation level and semi dry roasty finish.

O: I liked the flavors the rye incorporated. It didn't dominate the chocolate flavors of the stout and it really balanced everything out.

650ml bomber.

It pours a dense black (in my new duvel art glass so it is kind of hard to tell *exactly* what is going on). The head is large, foamy, and tan and leaves some very nice lacing.

Immediately the smell on this one is noticeable. For a 7% stout it is pretty fragrant. It has some solid clean dark barley malt scents, rye, some cocoa and caramel, and some slightly herbal hops. It is a really pleasant mix.

The flavor is also full flavored. It is definitely a hoppy stout, and as long as you pass the % threshold I think stouts can work well with hops. I'm glad I'm having this one fresh, the rye is really noticeable, I am not like a rye fan or anything but this one leaves a noticeable impression, not as good as a roggenbier but pretty damn interesting for a stout. Roasty and bitter malt flavors along with cocoa follow it up with some nice hop notes on the back end, even a subtle pine and fruit note.

This is a really smooth but complex brew, probably the best I have had from this brewery.

Reviewing the Baume from Half Acre Brewing Company.
Score: 91

Bottle is from the 03/02/12 release. Served in a Founders tulip glass and enjoyed on 03/10/12. Review is from notes.

Appearance: Pours a pitch black color with a thin highlight strip of brown at the top of the glass. One finger of creamy milk chocolate colored head at pour settles into a lighter, khaki colored ring around the glass. Excellent lacing, superior retention. 4.5/5

Smell: Intense notes of chocolate malt, barley and rye. Milk chocolate, "dry" hops, and a light amount of toffee and caramel. 4/5

Taste: Creamy milk chocolate and rye spice throughout. Cocoa/raw chocolate, light mocha and hops on the midpalate. The beer has a "spiciness" to the flavor from the rye that grows on the palate as the beer layers and warms. 4/5

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a nice amount (medium) carbonation that makes the spice flavors of the beer pop on the palate. Creamy mouthfeel. Bitter finish. 4/5

Overall: A superior beer to Big Hugs. This is easily the best Half Acre stout that I have had to date.

Recommendation: Seek this beer out.

Pairings: Vanilla ice cream.

Cost: $7.99 for a 22 oz (bomber) bottle.
