Inspired by the success of our "X" series of special Imperial Stout releases, we've embarked on a journey to the outer reaches of our popular Rye on Rye. For this inaugural release, a rich, tawny rye ale is aged in first-use rye whiskey barrels then transferred to yet another set of first-use rye whiskey barrels for a second aging, effectively resulting in "Rye on Rye on Rye."

Poured on Christmas eve 2021. Bottled in 2017. Wow.
The beer poured a nearly black with just a slight head. A
Aroma had some rye spice notes, with just a touch of pepper notes. Some vanilla with just a hint of molasses.
Taste: Wow, has some sweetness up front and a bit of rye dryness to the finish, with a taste of barrel aged richness. Very balanced to the point it was difficult to pick out any individual flavor notes. Did have some sediment in the bottle.
Overall. This might not be the best beer I ever drank, but it is definitely in the top 5. I have another bottle in the cellar. Not sure how it will get much better, but on the next special day, will have to try it.

2017 Vintage
750ml cork & cage bottle poured into a snifter

A- pours deep copper-ruby in color with a one-finger foamy off-white head that has great retention after the pour

S- aroma opens with bold notes of peppery and spicy rye, followed by caramel, and some fruity elements. The double rye barreling really brings out the barrel notes, tons of booze soaked oak, vanilla, coconut & rye whiskey

T- slightly sweet and malty up front with notes of caramel and toffee, immediately followed by bold rye notes; cracked pepper & spices. Mid-palate brings out bold notes of rye barrel, adding sharp oak, toffee, vanilla and barrel juice that continues into the finish. Lingers of rye and oak

M- medium body with moderate carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a boozy warming finish

O- a rye whiskey lovers beer, if there was such thing as rye whiskey in beer form, this would be it. A unique and delicious beer

Too much for me! I was expecting the usual barrel aged imperial stout - not so. More like an imperial scotch ale - think Founders Backwoods Bastard - but extremely boozy. I had to share the 1 oz taste. Not for me.

Pours a dark brown with a little murkiness to it. Head is two fingers of khaki foam. Aroma is rich and ripe with all the spicy and zestiness of rye. Plums and dark fruits add a little sugary sweetness. Flavor profile is- again - dominated by rye. It's spicy and zesty with a quick dry finish once it falls off. Plums and dark fruits offer up a little sweetness to pave over the high alcohol content, making it dangerously drinkable. Mouth feel is thick with a lightly velvety, creamy texture. Overall, big and full with a pleasant cutting spiciness that keeps this octane brew drinking smooth.

Under a micro harvest moon, hard to rate visual. 2017 release, minimal head or lacing. Nose carries wood, caramel, whisky. Taste is excellent, dried fruit, booze, treacle, fig, caramel malt, tannins in balance. Big body, light carbonation.

A: poured into a snifter to a deep brown topped by a dense and rocky two and a half fingers of cream colored head which fades slowly to a collar around the edge of the glass with minimal lacing.
S: Smells of caramel and vanilla mixed with some rye spice. Slight cherry and fruitiness as well with a touch of oak.
T: Taste is spicy rye, caramel, slight dark fruit, hint of cherry, more spice, oak, vanilla, and a touch of cherry. hint of slight mint quality as well. On the swallow there's some herbal rye, caramel, more fruitiness, vanilla, oak, and lingering spice.
M: This beer is thick and creamy on the palate. Carbonation is on the low end but it's where it should be for the style and ABV this beer is packing. The beer has a drying finish to bring things to an end which is expected for the style.
O: Overall this beer is intense in a good way. Huge flavors with great complexity really make this beer one to sip and savor. The concept is interesting since over barreled beers can just be too much but this one is great. Alcohol is pretty well hidden as well.

Very Hot but thin and sweet enough to be drinkable - Aging is likely to mellow it out but not improve my rating
