Tasted on draft and growlers in November 2010.
This beer is a blend. Over a year ago, St. Elias brewed a brown rye ale, fermented it with a typical clean-fermenting American yeast, then put it into whiskey barrels to age for a year. Recently, they brewed another brown ale, this one with a Belgian yeast, then blended the resulting beer with the aged brown rye ale. The result is Tin Hat, a wonderfully complex beer.
It pours a dark brown, with a tan head that dissipated fairly rapidly to a nice collar. The aroma is of caramel, whiskey, and a touch of Belgian yeast phenolic spiciness. On the palate it's a melange of flavors: wood, whiskey, rye spiciness, Belgian yeast peppery/earthy notes, you name it. Every sip seems to produce a new and interesting flavor profile. Once again, Brewer Zach Henry has flown in the face of conventional beer styles and produced something unique and delicious.
Serving type: on-tap
