On the heels of our prize-winning Rye Pale Ale comes this dark arts edition; another startling Old World meets New World mash-up. Every beer is a three part harmony of grain + hops + yeast, but in our Rye Stout each singer is a strong soloist too. Rye grain contributes a crisp edginess, subtle spice, with enhanced mouthfeel and foam retention. Dark pumpernickel bread, burnt toast, chocolate donuts dunked in medium roast coffee, cran-grape cocktail, dank resiny bitterness but then some sneaky candy sweetness build-up too. One of the best and smoothest stouts you’ll ever encounter, if you dare!
