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.

Letting it sit in the fridge for weeks I finally said fuck it. Grilling some gourmet burgs tonight, pairs well with the additions or roasted peppers and bacon. Ground beef from Angus Meats.

Hard pour into an over sized snifter. Big frothy 3 inch tan head. Slow to settle but on its way down leaves thick clumpy bubbles and lace along the walls.
A solid cap of retention.
color is a burnt red, that is pretty dark and cloudy.

Aroma of charred barrels, fermented cherries, rye whiskey, oats, maple brown sugar and loads of malt and a little chocolate.

Taste is also exceptional, 11% abv is nowhere to be found.
Sweet, but not overwhelming. Malt delight, oranges, tart fruit, maple, toasted wood, smooth and low key booze, rye spice. Man this is a full flavored brew.
Mouthfeel is super slick, bordering greasy but not in a bad way.
carbonation is present but put back in its place by a thicker body.

For me the aroma and lace show were the best part of this brew. Taste is great but aroma and taste didnt seem to match up.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

poured 750ml bottle into a chalice. bottled in 2011.

A - Deep dark brown with a 1 finger khaki head. Thin ring with some splotches of lacing.

S - Whoa, sweet vanilla whiskey! There must be a ton of sweet malt in this beer. Brown sugar, caramel, and molasses. Not picking up much rye or barrel.

T - Big, sweet notes of whiskey, caramel, brown sugar, and molasses. Only faint hints of rye and almost no barrel presence. Finish is very sweet with no alcohol. This reminds me of an aged Backwoods bastard.

M - Thick, full body with good carbonation for a 2 year old BA beer. It is rather rich and smooth.

O - Great job by this brewery to create a unique style that not many others dabble in, rye. It is big, bold, and bodacious. Maybe a bit too much to take on alone.

#7 of cellar diving

2011

Foamy white head lingers nicely and leaves pillowy white foam on the sides. Nice collar of foam.

Loads of vanilla, caramel, oak, dates, spicy!

Smooth, delightful, peachy, sweet, boozy. Rye loaf is dead ringer. Lots of caramelized ginger, guava, pineapple, apricot, cherry... Smooth even carbonation, sweetness is solid and well placed. Bitter bite is not even close to present. Thin with lots of backend bite.

A nice even Rye offering. By far the more rye forward brew I've ever had. Brau Bros. did a great job with Rye Wyne.
