Sour Pumpernickel Rye is our latest release from the Hermit’s Barrel Cellar. The base beer is a dark, strong ale, brewed with about 20% rye malt and aged in American whiskey barrels. The beer pours a deep brown color and exhibits aromas of sour dough, caraway, and dark berry. The tart fruit character carries over into the flavor, highlighted by hints of oaky vanilla, caraway, and cocoa, with an underlying bready sweetness. There is a definite warming effect as the 10.5% ABV moves through you. The finish is dry, but the discernible taste of dark rye bread lingers on the palate. Serve with charcuterie, sauerkraut, and pickles.
