Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Hazy brown amber color with a frothy but thin head. A nice lace that sticks around for a while.

Smell: The rye is present in the aroma but not as strong as you might think. Honestly I am not sure if it is the rye or the hops that makes for the spicy aroma. A little bit of biscuit to the smell too.

Taste: A little bit sweeter than I imagined it would be. There are some definite bourbon tones followed by spice. It is malty but not much on the bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with a bit of carbonation and warmth.

Overall: It is a nice beer for later in the evening or sipping with some friends
