Brewed by:
Half Acre Beer Company
Illinois, United States

Style: American Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00%

Availability: Rotating

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.

a wonderful extra from Peesie, thank you good sir..
melting the wax off with delicate precision..
marveling at the description..
dark brown nectar beguiles my tongue, daring me to identify all the flavors within. the body billows, rye snapping like the wind to the sails, hops anchoring themselves into the crevices. the roastiness a blanket encapsulating; sharks in the water..
an absolute treat and a reminder of why beers are brewed. they are to be fun to make and fun to drink, to share with friends. i will remember the rye and the hops with the next stout i brew. thank you half acre, and thank you, joe

Served in a tulip glass from bomber bottle purchased at brewery.

A: deep, dark black with two fingers of tan head that fades quickly.

S: smells of a stout with a hint of hops.

T: on first taste, this seems like a classic stout. However, the bitterness of the rye really comes through.

M: great dense feel.

O: unique stout that is worthy of a try.
