Notes: In honor of the brave men who stood up to the tax collector we have created Rye Rebellion, an Imperial Stout brewed with four different types of rye and aged in rye whiskey barrels.

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

Great for a night cap - last beer of evening - almost like a massive glass of wine. Well done on all fronts. Try 24.

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

Appearance: Pours a standard punch black with an inch of tan foam that resolves like an espresso cap, leaving lots of lacing to frame the glass.

Smell: I find it equal parts roast malt, chocolate, and rye whiskey.

Taste: Follows smell. Roasted malt and dark chocolate, up front, with rye whiskey becoming the core, framed by earthy, bitter hops that balance. The rye and whiskey continue past the swallow with oak wood and caraway that linger.

Mouthfeel: Totally full body with syrupy (good weight) feel and moderate carbonation.

Overall: Yay for originality found here in 4 kinds of rye and rye whiskey barrels. Brave. Try 24. But strictly 1 at a time. A sipping beer.

3.77/5  rDev -5.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Black with no light coming through when put up to the light. Nice one finger brown head

Smell: A ton of rye spice, slight roasted malt presence, and caramel sweetness

Taste: Rye and roasted malts up front with a sweet caramel finish. Maybe a hint of oak, but no whiskey characteristics whatsoever

Mouthfeel: Very, very thin body for this style. The thinnest imperial stout that i recall in fact. It also isnt all that smooth, sort of unrefined and gritty. If theres a down side to this beer, the mouthfeel would be it

Overall: i didnt have the highest of hopes, but i still find this a bit of a disappointment. The mouthfeel alone makes me feel like im drinking roasty rye water. I also wish it would be more full flavored and more robust and match the 11% abv. The aftertaste also falls off rather quickly. I couldnt really savor this one. Another thing is that there is little to no whiskey presence. I forgot it was even BBA. All in all its still fairly tasty and I'm happy to call this a local brew, but its not something ill buy again to revisit. Ill cellar the other three bottles and see what happens

the aromas are vanilla, marshmallow, chocolate, a little alcohol burning the nostril hairs. the flavor is balanced mostly. it comes off pretty sweet at first mimicking the aroma but finishes dry and spicy. the whiskey lingers quite a bit, sort of a cheap whiskey taste to it but thankfully it is pretty mild
