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.

Poured into a tulip glass.

The beer is coal black with a dark cream colored head that retains a thick layer of foam. Bubbly world map lacing coats the glass. The aroma is dominated by dark roasted malts, charred grains, and a faint black licorice note. The taste is exactly like the aroma except a faint smokiness comes in the finish as well. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and quite smooth for 8.5%.

Overall, a pretty beer and nothing to complain about.

Pours a thick, smooth, dark brown head. A nice acidic, roasted malt aroma. Black. Starts with a nice hop bitterness (a slight pineyness, too) and rich roasty flavor. Medium-high bitterness Moves into some acidity, then mellows into a nice finish of coffee beans.

This is quite nice. Very smooth. It's got a nice flavor profile; it blends toasted malt and hop bitterness quite well.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Dark, opaque black with a mocha brown foam that fades quickly to a thin skein leaving rings of lace. Smells roasty and chocolaty with a bit of toffee. Taste is roasted and lightly charred malt quite delicious with semi sweet and milk chocolate, toffee. Coffee. Hints of hop flavor lurking perhaps a wash of pine and citrus and a trace of sourness like a dark cherry. Lightly sweet balanced well so as it's essentially dry and creamy. Mouthfeel is medium, velvety smooth with nice carbonation. This is a very well crafted export stout. A double export stout actually. Very good.

Bottle into snifter

Appearance- Jet black, tan head

Aroma- Earth woody and piney hops, light coffee and chocolate, molasses, slight fruityness, light alcohol present

Flavor- Bigger punch than the aroma, pine and woody hops, coffee, roast, fruity, molasses, slight chocolate, alcohol warmth although very drinkable for the abv.

Mouthfeel- medium, good carbonation

Overall- Really liked the hop notes throughout on this one. For the style the nose could be stronger and I would have liked more fruityness, but a great brew, glad I picked up 6.
