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.

2014 vintage

A: poured into a snifter to a deep reddish brown topped by a finger and a half of dense light tan head
S: smell is spicy rye, caramel, vanilla and wood
T: taste is rye, whiskey, caramel, vanilla, oak, slight alcohol burn, and some fruity alcohol. swallow is more spicy rye, whiskey barrel, caramel and vanilla.
M: fairly full in the mouth with slightly prickly carb and a slightly dry finish
O: this beer kills it plain and simple. it's smooth, complex and just so good. Definitely one of my favorite Boulevard beers that I look forward to seeing again next year.

Big rye whiskey flavors marry perfectly with the underlying rye ale. A winner.
