While at Ashley’s Westland, we are going to sample another beer from Greenbush Brewery. It is their It’s My Porter And I’ll Rye If I Want To. If you read my earlier beer blog posts, you know the history of Greenbush Brewery. If you have not read them, please, read them to get to know this Michigan Craft Brewery. Let us get into this Rye Porter.
It has a jet black color without a head on this barrel age beer. The aroma has a heavy alcohol to bourdon notes. The taste has spicy with a heavy boozy notes with a heavy alcohol aftertaste. It is a sipping.
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
Closing, I really enjoyed this beer but towards the end of this 12oz pour. I was forcing myself to finish it. The boozy notes in the beer just over takes everything. Please, do not take this the wrong way. I really did like this beer but I cannot get through another 12oz pour. I could share a 12oz bottle. There is some notes rye spice that blends nicely but fate with the bourdon notes. I can see people that will love this beer and others will not like and/or hate it. If you see this beer on draft, try it. I recommend it. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
