Bell’s Rye Stout
From Bell’s Brewery – An abundance of rye grains provide a spicy twist to otherwise traditional stout flavors. A unique approach to an entirely new style of stout.
Bells Brewery – Bell’s Rye Stout – 12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. 6.7% abv. Thanks to Ray in MA!
Appearance: Pours a dark brown with a small white ring of fiz at the top.
Aroma: Slightly smokey roasty rye malt and old musty books found in a damp basement.
Taste: Burnt and roasted malt. Finishes like cold black coffee.
Mouthfeel: Low carbonation and full bodied.
Overall: I liked this beer, but wouldn’t drink it by itself again. I would enjoy it much more with a hearty meal. It is very dry, so it doesn’t have to be paired with dessert.
