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.

A- Murky tanish-brown with a hint of amber. Very thin light tan head that fades quickly and leaves a ring of bubbles around the edges of the glass.

S- Earthy rye, sweet sugary bourbon, charred oak. Somewhat subtle, but the nice aromas are there.

T- Similar to the aroma, lots of earthy rye, hints of sweet sugary booze on the back end, with the finish leaving a sweet woody aftertaste.

M- Full bodied, pretty boozy, slight carbonation tingle.

O- A pretty interesting big beer. The flavors do not jump out, but I feel like this would be a good one to drink on a cold night.
