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.

Equal parts strong and smooth, this is no beer for the faint of heart. It poured nicely and it's rich brown color and head were ascethitcally pleasing. The aroma is what you'd expect from a beer aged in rye whiskey barrels. Full of flavor on the front and back end, along with a pleasing aftertaste. All in all, very well crafted brew!

Boozy and delicious. Did I mention it's boozy??? Super strong, packed with flavor, it's a butt-kicker no doubt. It's like taking a drink of barleywine and chasing it with bourbon. It's obnoxious and if you don't like huge beers that punch you in the face then you need not imbibe this glorious nectar. However if you do appreciate the awesomeness that is a 12% whisky barrel aged rye bomb then by all means.... drink deeply and allow your palate to forever be left wanting. Great job once again Boulevard, please send me free beer....j/k... but seriously....
