Why Rye? This assertively flavorful grain is more often associated with whiskey than with ales. Even in that arena, it has largely been eclipsed by corn and barley, the sources of bourbon and scotch. But when we procured some seasoned barrels from our friends at Templeton Rye, we asked ourselves, “Why not?” Why not brew a rich, tawny rye ale, then mellow it in the warmth of charred oak rye whiskey casks? Two kinds of malted rye provide spicy sweetness, giving way to notes of caramelized wood and the citrusy tang of Perle, Magnum, and Saphir hops before easing into a dry, lingering finish.

My on complaint is I let this bottle warm up to room temperature (which where I live is 50) and unlike other bottle conditioned beers this one was a gusher. But looking past that it was the best foam I have ever had. Nice rye spiciness and the whiskey flavor and aroma does wonders. It's not stout like at all with lots of chocolate or coffee flavors but it is a dark full bodied beer with some nice tones of whiskey and rye. The person who blended this is a magician, well i am guessing it's blended based on the ratio but overall good beer thick warming great tasting.

A classic from Boulevard. None of the flavors punch you in the nose, but the nose is excellent. Not sure I would pay $12.99 again, though. Maybe $9.99. So probably my last bottle.
