BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Boulevard Brewing Co.
Missouri, United States | website

Style: Rye Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 12.00%

Availability: Rotating

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.

Pours a nice, clear, medium-amber color, capped off with a huge, rocky light brown head. Aromas of freshly cut wood, vanilla, spicy rye and booze. Fairly boozy on the palate, with rye whiskey, brown sugar and some late hoppiness. As I mentioned, this one is pretty hot, but also quite good. I'm really enjoying these new rye barrel aged rye beers.

Boulevard has a masterful way of using a base style and then using it as a springboard for experimentation and aggression. Rye-on-Rye does all this and keeps its balance and stature pristine. Absolutely amazing.

Rye-on-Rye pours with a glowing but slightly hazy deep copper, truely amber color. A froathy and creamy off white head shows a lot of structure and allure with great staying power (characteristic of rye beers) and impressive lacing throughout. Light legging through the alcohols can be seen with a gentle swirl of the glass.

Dopplebock-like aromas fill the olfactories with strong notes of sun-kissed barley fruitiness and deeply bready melanoidins. The rye character gives a gentle spice and deep bread (bread crust) scent that hovers just above the deeply caramel scent.

Raisons and plumbs lead the sweet start the beer from an estery and rum-like sip to a deep and complex bready sweet bread notion mid-way through. The spicy rye then ushers the beer from sweetness to a non-descript maltiness in the end. The finish delivers an alcoholic and powerful malty-dryness that avoids the boozy notes that sometimes detract from the beer-y notion of whisky aged beers.

Definately a weighted and malty mouthfeel, especially early- the beer retains a lot of body and creaminess deep into the session, with a deep and bready texture throughout.

Interestingly enough, the beer is increadibly complex but doesn't scream about all its nuances. Beautiful in its simplicity but intriguing in its development as the glass warms and the carbonation releases. I wish that the beer dried out a bit more in the finish and I want more of a toast quality. Where the sweetness of the malts are amplified by the sweet rye whisky contributions, the beer takes on a candied flavor and texture. But the rye grains and rye whisky aging has done it's artistic job in a very robust and characterful way. Again, hats off to Boulevard.

Thanks again BlueOkie- I owe you!

Poured into a snifter on 5/15/10

Bottle No. 5858, Batch No. 2010-1, Best Buy 01/13

Many thanks to mhewes

Pours a dark brown; once in the glass it has almost a plum or dense crimson bent. A multitude of small particles drift slowly throughout. Slightly hazy, this is nearly impenetrable beer. Despite over two fingers of head from the pour, retention is very thin. Scant lacing.

This is seriously a rye bomb; rye-on-rye, indeed. Rye malts come through distinctly & are augmented by the rye whiskey barrel aging. Whiskey is at the fore with hints of charred oak & vanilla. The aroma is also airy & smooth, with a notable boozy swoon. Maybe a few wisps of earthy hops come through.

A mild earthy hop sizzle hits upfront. From there on, it's all about the rye - spicy & oh, so tasty. Rye breadiness is at the core, with the rye whiskey flavor acting as a panoramic augmentation. Vanilla notes are prevalent as well. Hints of oak & charcoal help to solidify the flavors. I'm tired of typing rye; suffice to say, the taste is exceptional.

Rye-on-Rye is basically full bodied. It isn't lacking density, that is. Carbonation is moderately low; allowing for an expressive flavor profile. Alcohol is apparent most of the time, though not excessively hot. Notes of whiskey, rye malt & vanilla hang on the finish.

Considering the intensity of the beer, drinkability is is good. It's a sipper for sure, but well worth investing the time it requires. Every time I've had a Boulevard beer I really wish they distributed to Ohio; this is no different.

This beer is much sweeter everywhere than I was expecting. The nose is nice, caramelly, smooth, vanilla-y and oaky. Some whiskey jumps out but its really knocked back by sweet vanilla and caramel.

Again the taste is quite sweet. Malts, caramel, fruits, wine, charred oak vanilla and even some creamsicle. The whiskey comes in strong, especially in the middle of the flavors as they meld and move across the palate.

Notes after having a bottle of my own sent to me by AleWatcher:

Bottle No. 8056 of 12148. Batch Number 2010-1 Best by 01/13

A- Typical Smokestack Series big white sticky head. The beer is a deep red.

S- Definitely lots of rye. That souriness and breadiness of rye comes through a lot. Vanilla, oak, and whiskey are blended together well.

T- Nice vanilla, oak, light whiskey, fruity hops. A big dose of sour rye that gives it a bite.

A - Thick root beer head. Cloudy, thick, rich amber color.
S - Citrus and malt jump out. Slight cinnamon and vegetable aromas emerge as well.
T - Bold but balanced, and delicious. Wood, red wine, caramel malt, orange, and vanilla. More flavors with each sip, but very balanced. The finish is a bit boozy, but it's not overpowering, and doesn't interfere with the more subtle flavors.
M - Pure velvet.
D - This is worth devoting a night to. One person, one 750ml bottle...taste it, enjoy it, and call it a night. I wasn't sure how to score the drinkability on this one. It is a stroonnnng beer, but it is supposed to be.
I started this guy in a balloon glass at about 55deg, and let it sit as I drank...took me about an hour and a half to fully enjoy this beer, and was therefore finishing it a room temperature. Quite a journey of a beer.

Careful when pouring or you'll get a head of three plus fingers, loosely knit tan brown color, medium-sized bubbles, looks very frothy, average stickiness to the lacing takes some time to settle close to the surface. Very hazy orange-brown color, like muddy water, fully opaque, no change in hue further from the core. In the nose the oak comes through loud and clear, vanilla, buttered toast and caramel, definitely on the boozy side, banana and bubblegum as well as poached apricot and peach scents, the rye component softer than expected, lowering the overall breadiness, as it warms more mixed citrus comes out. Full-bodied and a real mouth filler, the carbonation ensures every pore covered cheek to cheek. Sweet without turning dulcet, caramel, butterscotch, vanilla fudge and carob, the raw whiskey flavors doesn't choose sides, dry in that heady, boozy fashion. The rye much stronger here, cuts the sweetness and lends a bitter burst. The orange citrus juicy and sweet, same for the concentrated apricot, peach, cherry, banana fruit flavors. Earthy in a fecund, herbaceous manner. This is a road grader of a beer so be forewarned.

Bottle #9509 of 12148 Batch 1

Served at cellar temp. Pours a clear chestnut color with a large cream colored head that had good retention. Heavy lacing is left on the glass. A lot of whiskey in the aroma. Hints of vanilla, leather, and toffee. Not really much of a beer aroma. Very boozy in flavor. Definately get the rye whiskey flavor but not much from the rye beer. Also hints of vanilla and toffee. Just a touch of sweetness in the finish that gives a clue to the base beer before it was barrel aged. Not a bad tasting beer, actually enjoyable if you enjoy rye whiskey, but it seems the barrel aging got away from them or they should of adjusted the blend a little. The body feels full and creamy. Nice for a big, boozy beer. As a rye beer this is not the best example. But as a barrel aged beer, whiskey fans will find this quite enjoyable.

Picked up a bottle from 99 Bottles Federal Way, WA

A: Poured a orangish amber color with good carbonation and big fluffy dirty white head

S: Rye, booze, wood, vanilla

T: Starts out boozy, midway through its boozy with some rye and finishes boozy with less rye with a little vanilla

M: Seems thin, boozy, throwing off CO2, unappealing and tough to drink minus the excess booze feel, thin body and flat tastes

D: While not terrible it got a B out of sheer generosity. Avoid. This beer is way overpriced and spend the $13 elsewhere!

25+ oz bottle into a standard pint glass
Pours a beautiful golden mahogany with a huge head (careful!). Head settles eventually into a white coating. Lacing isn't heavy but lasting. Nose is whiskey, molasses, toffee and candied fruit. Taste is very complex - the rye, cherries, toffee and tobacco noticeable, but the whiskey taste is throughout. There is a boozy warming and tiny bitterness at the end. The progression of things this goes through are fascinating. Mouthfeel is moderate but it does feel heavy in aftertaste. This is NOT boring! Couldn't have much more of this at a sitting (11%) but will definitely seek it out again.

A- Pours a slightly hazy, burgundy color with a light brownish colored head. Head leaves quite a bit of lacing and has pretty good retention.

S- Rye and whiskey smells jump right up and hit you. Some nice breadyness here, vanilla and floral hops.

T- It tasted pretty sweet, booze and rye. Also could pick up some woody taste, spicy notes, and a bit of vanilla.

M- Quite dry, fuller side of medium in body and lower side of medium in carbonation.

D- Not a huge fan of the rye beers, but I really did like this one. Probably more of a sipper but very nice.

Poured into a pint glass.

The body is a beautiful rust color which thins out a little near the sides of the bottle. An aggressive pour yields a good amount of light tan head which leaves a creamy film on top of the body and has some delicate lacing.

The smell is, of course, led off and dominated by a dry whiskey auroma. This dry, woody smell is bold but is complimented very well by a smooth and sweet side that has hints of toffee.

A very woody and rye taste to the beer. The alcohol is very present along with oak, toffee and vanilla.

The mouthfeel compliments and helps the beer perfectly. It is a thinner body, with a slight amount of carbonation, but it is very smooth. It seems to emphasize the different flavors of the beer but without ever getting in the way.

The beer goes down so easy, especially for its high ABV. It seems like a refined and mature beer to add to Boulevard's illustrious Smokestack series.

Batch 2010-1
Bottled on 1-13-10

Pours a hazy blood red color with millions of little floaters. The head is big and off-white, with big rings of lacing.

Smell is all rye whiskey, sweet and buttery. Slightly fruity with a very pleasant hit of oak. Perfect balance of whiskey and beer.

Taste is very tart at first, followed by an immense kick of rye whiskey. The booze is hot and really adds a cool hardcore character.

Mouthfeel is slick and creamy, with tight carbonation to remind you it's a beer.

Drinkability is very good, flavors are awesome.

Overall, get some.

A- A hazy luminescent red/ orange liquid with a few amount of floaters. The off-white head is thin, but creamy with a decent amount of lacing. Very nice color.

S- Has a strong hit of rye whiskey aroma, with the vanilla and oak characteristics standing front and center. I also get a bit of earthiness and fruitiness sticking out as well- most notably a watermelon aspect. Maybe a touch whiskey heavy, but it is very enjoyable.

T- Vanilla, oak, earth, fruit, and caramel. Pretty whiskey heavy, but the alcohol is well masked.

M- Smooth and creamy with the slightest alcohol numbing aspect.

D- A very enjoyable beer that is unique and very impressive. Along the lines of Founders Nemesis. A touch whiskey heavy, but very well done.

750ml caged and corked bottle no. 10053 of 23258, batch 2010-1 best by 01/13, courtesy of russpowell. Thanks Russ!

Good stubborness with the cork but not overlsy so, it pours a hazy deep amber brown with a 3 finger head of thick foam.

The smell is a nice mix of Wiskey and spiciness from the rye. Some light fruitiness also reaches my nosebuds but I'm not too sure about it except that it smacks of cherries.

The taste also says cherries, yay!, and..oak...and whiskey...and a heaping helping of spicy rye. Very tasty but man, this puppy sure brings some big time warming. The cherries seem to have an underlying flavour of cinnamon mixed in. I noticed it from the start but it fell down in the queue because so much other "stuff" is going on. Like an almost sweet and sour thang. ;^)

This is almost full bodied with plenty, but not too much, carbonation.

Drinkability? Despite the alcohol being up there at 11.00% and I can feel it just about to the max, this is still pretty damn drinkable. Lots of good flavours, lots of enjoyment. Well made brew.

Tawny clouded body wit outstanding rocky cream head that goes the distance.

The nose is huge! Charred oak, spicy rye bread, tons of whiskey saturated fruits(maraschino cherries)caramalized sugar, perhaps some Jager??

THe taste is full on whiskey, very smokey with huge notes of caramel and vanilla, charred oak is also really prevelant. Some mild fruit flavors and a malt sweetness come to fruition before a dryish close. This is one boozey and complex ride.

The beer is well carbonated medium to full bodied and has a very syrupy but not heavy texture.

I absolutely love all of the Smokestack Series brews, but I think this is the best one by far. I WAS never a whiskey drinker, but the more brews that I sample that have been aged in whiskey barrels, the more I am seeing myself grow a liking for that smokey goodness.

A - Poured out a slightly hazy, burgundy color. Like all Smokestack beers it had a huge head - light brown/tan, long-lasting and thick foam that left behind thin rings of lace.

S - Rye and whiskey aromas hit you right in the nose as it pours out. As you examine more closely there are floral notes, too.

T - It tasted of maple syrup, booze and rye. There was a strong maltiness with touches of vanilla and a mild spicy hop presence.

M - This one is crisp, sharp and smooth. A full-bodied, slow sipper with a dry finish.

D - This is yet another fine brew from the Boulevard Smokestack series. One of the best rye beers that I've ever had.

Review from tasting notes:

Gorgeous ruby/amber color, large white head, lacing and nice retention.

Very interesting nose: Spicy, fruity, some citrus, and a nice dose of whiskey. Some kind of spice in the background that's reminiscent of nutmeg.

Sweet, full body on this beer, with nice spicy rye flavors, and a heavy handed helping of whiskey. Inhaling the aroma while sipping really brings this aspect out. Nice bittering hops, some citrus qualities, balanced by a bready, toasty malt backbone. It's very interesting, but at the same time there's something different and strange about this beer which left me wondering if I really liked it. My tongue says yes, but brain says, not sure.

Medium/full body, average carbonation.

Still can't tell if I like it, or want a whole lot more, even after it warms. It's quite tasty, and it's scores are deserving. Drinkable, but strong, and the flavors can get overwhelming after awhile. Another one to share as I think one glass was an interesting treat.

A. Dark copper, nearly red in color. This beer is cloudy, almost murky with a thick head.

S. Sweet and perfumy with strong whiskey tones. It also has a slight fruity Belgian yeast smell.

T. Pleasant rye flavor with oak undertones. It is sweet and alcoholic. I expected more of a whiskey taste, but it was still good. Very subtle hop character.

M. This beer had an average texture which was less than expected from the cloudy appearance. It was light and smooth with good carbonation.

D. A very enjoyable beer, the 750 mL bottle would be great to share with friends.

Boulevard Rye on Rye

Dense & opaque, solid, almost sludgy...gorgeous cap of rocky, lace-leaving, beige foam holds down the fort. Beautiful.

Intriguing aroma. Notes of cherries, leather, alcohol, spice. Plenty of whiskey happening here. Rich and ripe. Arousing, enticing.

In the mouth, it's ablaze with flavor. Warm and spicy, tingling on the tongue. Full-bodied, generous with the senses. A certain heat subsists throughout the drink,while the cherry and vanilla flavors wash over the palate again and again.

I'm a sucker for the whiskey barrel beers, that's for sure, but this one almost exceeds them all. Despite a huge alcohol content, I feel it's a well-balanced beer, ...for what it is. We've basically got a whiskey barrel barleywine in this one, a rich, hot sweetness, backed with formidable strength, then cool and mellow.

I think this beer is genius, and I'd be an idiot not to pick up more of these bombers.
Has to be one of the best beers I've had in a long time, not a surprise, as I've yet to have a Smokestack brew I didn't love. These guys are doing great work!

750 mL bottle poured into a tulip.
Bottle no. 4504 of 12148.

Exuberant pop upon uncorking this beer. Pours a rich, turbid mahogany topped by a fizzy but lasting off-white head. Light spotty lacing.

Front of the nose is dominated by whiskey, with beautiful notes of toffee, leather, tobacco, candied fruit, and a touch of smoke. Clove spiciness throughout. There's a subtle undercurrent of spicy rye bread that forms a wonderful base, displaying the rye whiskey notes while adding its own layer of complexity. On the whole the nose invites me to come hither, all the while warning me to process with caution.

The whiskey explodes on the palate, showering my taste buds with flavors of toffee and molasses, oak, vanilla, candied fruit, spice, and a bit of dry leather. Wow. A very subtle breadiness lingers in the background, but there's a lot less rye ale and a lot more rye whiskey on the palate than on the nose. Alcohol is prominent, perhaps to the point of being boozy. Not unexpected, but a bit unwelcome.

Medium to heavy bodied, firm, and a bit oily. Doesn't seem as carbonated as the earlier pop would suggest, but still too carbonated--a problem I've noted in the recent Smokestack beers (Harvest Dance, Collaboration No. 1, Tank 7). But a darn tasty beer all the same. Best to split with at least one other person.

Pours a nice cinnamon stick brown color with some nice head, decent lacing. Smell is big on the whiskey with some nice spicy rye notes in there too. Taste follows, but with some big buttery vanilla notes. A bit of piney hops, but just a tad, some spicy malt, wood, and more vanilla. Oddly, this all seems a bit muted to me. The flavors just don't 'pop' like I want them to. Also, as the beer goes on this becomes more pronounced. Medium to full body with some nice creaminess, decent carbonation to keep it going. Drinkability is pretty good, but as the beer goes along it kind of loses its power, an odd experience. I was happy to try this. This might be an unfair comparison, but given the option to spend $13 on this or a 4-pack of Backwoods Bastard, I'd go with the Backwoods. Nevertheless, good stuff, just not necessarily all there for me.

Poured this 750 mL brown bottle into a Duvel glass. Batch 2010-1, best by: 01/13. Numbered 8655/12148. A hefty pour created a huge tan head. The body was deep golden brown. The head faded slowly to a creamy cap.

Smell was whisky. Crazy, but I smell celery here! Woody vanilla. Alcohol was up front but it seemed to fade a bit as it warmed, which seems unusual, typically the alcohol seems to get stronger as the beer warms.

Taste was of whisky but not as strong as the aroma would indicate. Alcohol and brown sugar. Grain and rye spiciness. This is a big beer! Pretty drinkable despite the ABV.

Mouthfeel was a bit thinner than I expected. Medium bodied with adequate carbonation.

Thanks to my brother for splitting this bottle with me. Bottle No. 7,873 of 12,148. The beer pours a murky brown color with a tan head. The aroma is strong rye with some oaked notes and dark fruit. The flavor is very nice with rye, cherries, vanilla, oak and a strong, spicy hops and rye finish. The alcohol is fairly noticeable. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
