$ 3.99/12 oz bottle at Vintage estates in Boardman, OH
Vintage 2014 bottle at 40 degrees into standard pint glass
Aroma – none
Head small (< 1 cm), light brown, frothy, rapidly diminishing to 2 mm ring
Lacing good – narrow rings and stalactites of small bubbles
Body dark brown, opaque
Flavor of cheap rye whiskey, no roasted malt, no hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl. Stomach burns.
Palate full, creamy, soft carbonation

To me this seems much like drinking cheap rye straight up. The only redeeming characteristics are the appearance and palate, which, incidentally, are the only stout features. I don’t know about any rebellion, but it is certainly revolting.

Imagine my delight (upon reviewing and enjoying this beer) on finding that Full Pint brews in the Pittsburgh area! Definite end of summer road trip! Poured from a 12oz into my tulip glass. Midnight with a few small bubbles... recipe for visual excellence in an aged IS, right? Aromas of coffee, rye, and roasted malt. Everything slightly subdued, though of course, more came to the surface as it warmed up, including the elusive whiskey notes. The taste (for me) was almost off the charts good. Coffee, cocoa nibs, rye bread deliciousness, a hint of whiskey, overall mild and enjoyable. Such a great balance, and not alcohol-heavy (even at 11% ABV). So subtle and nice. Complete 180 degrees from a (to remain unnamed) BBA Imperial that I had the other night that basically broke a bottle of whiskey over my face. Rye Rebellion gave nice, balanced flavors that evolved over time, and changed my mind about the style (which I often find overpowering). Nice, velvety mouthfeel. This hit the spot. Can't wait to age a couple of these bad boys. Thumbs straight up for this one.

Coffee black pour. Fantastic nose to it. Dark chocolate, smooth whisky, roasted malt, and a little faint tobacco. One of the better smelling stouts I can recall. The taste has a bunch of bitter dark chocolate, some sweetness from vanilla, and the rye whisky, though nowhere near what the smell would lead you to believe for me. Just a very nice compliment. Also a bit smokey, but I dont really notice any definite coffee flavor. Medium bodied. Not too thin, but if it were a tad heavier/creamier it wouldnt hurt. Otherwise, my biggest complaint would be that it is too bitter in the aftertaste. Still an outstanding beer that doesnt drink like 11% either. Even at $16/4 pack this is a barrel aged bargain.
