Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

One of the few small grains still grown in Southwestern Minnesota, malted rye is the base for this one-of-a-kind ale brewed and aged in tiny Lucan, Minnesota.Following a long, slow fermentation, the beer is stored away in used rye whiskey barrels brought North from our friends at Templeton, located in the equally tiny town of Templeton, Iowa.

2011 vintage bottle brought back by my sister from Minnesota. Poured into a Blanche de Namur small pint glass. Pours a dark, hazy mahogany brown with little light transmission in the glass. A thin, dark khaki head dissipates quickly to patches and light lacing. Nice aroma of rye whiskey, caramel malt, brown sugar. Flavor is rich, brown sugary caramel malt, rye whiskey, vanilla, dark dried fruit, mostly plums and raisins, finishing with oak, malt and spicy whiskey. Delicious. Medium bodied with light creaminess, light carbonation. I was saving this for a "special occasion", but that section is getting too big and to crowded, so why not tonight? This is so tasty, I kept thinking I should have saved it, but not disappointed that it is open now. A strong, intense ale, but the malt body is more than up to the task of supporting the rye whiskey flavors. Reminiscent of an English barleywine for the malt and fruit, but unique in the great rye profile. Excellent. I'll never see this again, but I'll remember it for a long time. What a great sister.

Gorgeous notes on the nose of the and caramel. Body is a beautiful pairing of rye and sweetness with a hint of smoke that is reminiscent of a leathery goodness. A little not and burning in the back of the throat. Otherwise a gorgeous beer.

2011

Appearance: mahogany colored. Opaque and full of rye flake sediment. One or two fingers of a tan head that fades slowly and leaves a strong lacing on the sides.

Smell:strong whiskey. Strong boozy quality. Some molasses and toffee sweetness. Some strong dark fruits, raisins and plums.

Taste: opens with an oak like quality. Quickly taken over by booze, spicy hot whiskey. Subtle notes of raisins, molasses, rye, toffee, tobacco. Lots of complexity if you sip at this as it warms.

Mouthfeel: heavy and thick. Quite hot even at 3 years old.

Overall: good and complex but too strong on barrel. I would like those subtle characters to come out stronger for it to be great
