Odd Side Ales Rye Hipster Brunch Stout
What the brewers say
Fudge cookies dipped in your favorite rye whiskey, decadent and rich.
What our panel thought
Hints of smoke and smoked meat mingle within an aroma of roast malt, chocolate, coffee, and earthy hops. The flavor profile is equally smoke-forward and is reminiscent more of scotch-barrel aging than rye whiskey, despite the noticeable rye-like spicy notes.
What our editors thought
Bacon and maple syrup offer a brief hit on the aroma before it settles into a slightly thin sip of smoked meat, spicy bourbon, and soothing dark chocolate. Strange but engaging, it’s out of the norm but deliciously appetizing.
