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.

2013 version...very interesting beer. The whiskey flavor was very balanced ie you could taste it but it was not overpowering. Plus the 12% ABV added a nice kick.
Enjoyed this one a lot and will try to get another when available.

This is my go to when my growler shop has it. It is smooth tasty and packs a punch. The barrel aging does its magic in this one.
