I’ve never heard of a rye porter. The Breweres Gone Wild series really is ballsy. Touch burnt woody barrel aging is quite apprent but not over done. Rye is a clear note. Lots of vanilla. Creamy. oily. The coffee and chocolate notes do not go over board. Unique.

Bottle from tytoanderso. Thanks bro!
Couldn’t wait to try this one so it went from my doorstep to the freezer to our tasting table. Cola brown body, could stand to be a bit darker I would imagine, but still looks fine. Two finger thick brown head that is semi lasting and leaves a good amount of drip lacing. The rye influence is immediately apparent on the nose, along with dank liquor barrels, coffee beans, chocolate and dark roasted malts. More rye in the flavor, lends a nice spicy note throughout the experience that makes this one pretty unique and a lot of fun. Chocolate and licorice are also apparent, along with a musty quality from the barrels. A little thin at first, but evens out and this isn’t supposed to be too overwhelmingly thick or meaty I don’t think, given the style. Finish brings one last kick of rye, barrel influence and coffee beans that carry on for quite a while. I want more of this.

Intricate design of a barely translucent and chocolaty black array. A darkened cocoa smudge resides on top. Aroma is divine elaboration. Chocolate oats and sweetly charred rye flakes. Milk chocolate covered mocha beans settled with an embalming Godiva liquor. Cocoa nibs on cocoa powdered biscotti, lightly dipped in a caramelized whiskey sauce. Good things are on their way. Flavor buds blissfully with vibrant rye and just the right hint of acidity. The cocoa complexity comes through with a dry talc and soot like feel combining at once with the delicatessen milk chocolate squares. Flaked rye intermingles with bourbon and a whiskey and rye accented crème brulee. You can feel the palate break like the caramelized crust layer on top. Like dessert, like mouthfeel. It’s a joyous, full bodied occasion.

Bottle courtesy of my mother in law. Mild sweet roast, oatmeal, and chocolate. Black body with tan head. Flavor is a good dose of chocolate and vanilla creamy texture to body. Some dry coco chalk on palate but creamy vanilla aftertaste balances that out.

Pours a deep, burnt brown. Aroma is roast dominant, with dark fruits, dates, ginger, cardomom, toffee. The barrel component is well integrated and works well. The flavor is very roasted, with the coffee notes really leading the charge.

Bottle and served in my Stone IRS snifter: Very deep brown with reddish highlights topped by a big frothy tan head and left very good lace upon the glassware. The aroma is surprisingly weaker than expected with notes of chocolate, walnut, vanilla, rye, cookie dough, fig and coffee. The taste is a very well balanced sweet malt, light fleshy fruit, and rye bread. Some oak and whiskey appear but are more complementary than in-your-face. Nice Cafe Mocha flavor and star anise flavors on the finish. The mouth feel is medium-bodied and lush (for a porter even more so) with a slight dry aftertaste. Really enjoyed this as the barrel aging works well with the flavor profile IMO. Try some for yourself.

12oz bottle, courtesy of Ughsmash (and Stine). Thanks, guys! Pours a very dark brown color; medium tan head with patchy, fine-bubbled lacing. Solid amounts of rye, dark chocolate, and cocoa in the aroma; nothing overly complex; plenty of cocoa. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: cocoa, warming rye, and dark bitter chocolate upfront; not a huge barrel presence overall: lots of roasted malts, cocoa, and bitter chocolate, but not a lot of rye whiskey coming through; average carbonation; some warmth coming in mid-palate. Lengthy, rye whiskey and roasted malts and dark chocolate; a bit chalky and dry.
