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.

Color- hazy dark maple syrup. Medium head.

Aroma- pecan pie and bourbon.

Taste- A rich, deep masterpiece. Starts sweet and "hot" from the high alcohol, followed by a fantastic bourbon barrel note that reminds us of a good time on a warn Kentucky evening, finishes long and tasty with remaining hints of bourbon, grain, and raisin. Don't serve too cold; it needs to warm a bit to develop its optimum flavor. .A fantastic cold weather brew! Purchased Feb. 2014. Tasted 5/28/14.

Poured from a corked 750 ml bottle into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass),

Serving type: bottle

Pours a hazy brownish red with big tan head that never dissipates.
Aroma is of heavy barrel. Slightly woody and earthy. A bit of tart cherry. Hints of caramel in the back.
Flavor is much the same. Light fruity flavor, caramel, mild husky grains in the background. Deep woody flavor dominates, and gets stronger as it warms. Finish is sweet like candied smoked meat.
Medium bodied and hides the alcohol well. Warming however.

A really enjoyable beer. Lower carbonation compliments the flavor a of the barrel well.

Serving type: on-tap
