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.

2013 bottle

A - Pours a light amber, almost translucent. Has a frothy two finger eggshell head.

S - Definitely rye whiskey overload... Malts and caramel in the background.

T - Rye with a sweeter side that has a woodsy oaky background.

M - Light body, medium to high carbonation. It has a wet finish.

O - Complex, unique and aggressive towards the rye whiskey. Not bad at all!
