Notes/Commercial Description:
From the limited-release Summit Union Series, we’re proud to offer Rebellion Stout. Single-hopped with a new UK dwarf hop named after a Celtic queen who led the fight against the Romans. Brewed with the quintessential Stout malt from fiercely independent County Cork, Ireland. Loosely based on a recipe from 1896 taken from the archives of an old Cork brewery.

3.5/5  rDev -12.7%

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black body. Nice dark khaki head. Excellent lacing.

Smell - Roasted malt. Some milk chocolate.

Taste - Dark roasted malt. Coffee. Deep caramel. Some nuttiness. Lingering milk chocolate flavor.

Mouthfeel - Medium body, maybe a bit light for a "big" stout. Creamy. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Quite drinkable because of its body. Flavors are pretty good if unremarkable.

Pours a jet black with a frothy chocolate head that slowly dissipates.

Coffee, tar, and nutty malt form the initial aroma, with chocolate and licorice adding complexity.

Flavor is sweeter than anticipated. Rich roast malt forms the backbone, with a hint of char adding bitterness at the finish. Dark cherries underlie a chocolatey, nutty profile.

Body is a touch light, with carbonation on the low side. Alcohol warmth does not overwhelm.

Great malt complexity. The dark fruit really sets off this beer. Wish there were more export stouts available. Love the contrast of roast and chocolate. Could use a touch more body.
