Island City Rye Porter

Minocqua Brewing Co

USA

This was the first of the MBC beers that I tried in their lake-side brewpub. I love rye in my ales, and it's beers like this that make me think so. It's got a rich, coffee-like flavor, with a little chocolate coming through. That roasted flavor would make this a great porter for sipping in the middle of winter, especially if I was sitting in MBC's bar while watching the ice fishermen. And since winter is 6 months long up there in Da Northwoods, the rye porter would be a daily staple if I lived there.
