The rare, once-a-year release is brewed with coconut, cinnamon and turbinado sugar, then laid down and aged in bourbon barrels for several months. The result is a gigantic, 15% ABV brew that’s deceptively smooth and subtly sweet. Since its release in 2015, No Rules has earned a stack of accolades, including a RateBeer ranking in the World’s Top 10 Imperial Baltic Porters of 2016, and the World’s Top New Beer Release of 2015. No Rules holds a score of 100 on BeerAdvocate. Here’s what BeerAdvocate users had to say:
“SMOOOOOOOTH and sweet (with a capital S). Not overly boozy. Easy to pound and crush.” – drdyel
“Overall, one of the best beers I’ve ever had. Definitely a bit sweet but not overdone. The sugar and bourbon alcohol mix perfectly with chocolate, spice, vanilla and cinnamon.” – Wolvmar
“The barrel is prominent on the taste, but the oak and coconut mellow it a bit. The star of the show, though, is the turbinado sugar, which adds sweetness (duh) to the beer, but also depth and balance that really elevates this.” – ovaltine
In addition to No Rules 2021, Perrin will offer other rare items online, including exclusive vintage variants of No Rules, as well as Malted Milk Ball, Perrin Reserve and Roeselare. The online order form will be accessible on April 10 here. Offerings will be available on a virtual “first come, first served” basis.
