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.

4.43/5  rDev +10.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Surly Darkness chalice. Bottle says best by 05/12/14.

Appearance: Pours an oily dark black with a moderate amount of bubbles. Solid one finger of deep tan head which fades into a thin creamy layer. Leaves a lot of creamy lacing around the glass.

Smell: A very dark and roasty stout aroma with big hints of dark chocolate, coffee, and some spicy hops. Upfront dark roasted malts with a big scent of dark chocolate, dark roast coffee beans, toast, burnt caramel, toffee, nuts, biscuit, grains, and yeast. Slight hints of molasses and cream. A quite noticeable presence of hops for a stout with earthy hints and pine resin. Subtle hints of dark fruit with some fig, plum, cherry, and raisin. A very solid roasty aroma.

Taste: Like the aroma hints, a very roasty stout taste with big notes of dark chocolate, coffee, and a big presence of spicy hops. Big taste of dark roasted malts with notes of dark chocolate, dark coffee beans, burnt caramel, toasted bread, toffee, nuts, biscuit, grains, cream, and yeast. Big presence of spicy hops with notes of pine resin. Enough hops that it almost tastes like a black ale. Also some notes of molasses. Dark fruit undertones of cherry, fig, plum, and raisin. A very good dark taste.

Mouthfeel: Body is on the heavier side of medium. Carbonation is moderate. Nicely creamy with a pretty drying finish from the hops and roast. Alcohol is hidden well.

Overall: A very good twist on the Export Stout style. Big and bold with the dark malt but also with a big spicy hop presence. Its like a cross between an Imperial Stout and Black Ale.

4.15/5  rDev +3.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

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.
