A collaboration with Stephen Jones at Oliver Breweries, the B.W. Rye uses English malts, American hops (Centennial in the boil, whole-leaf Cascade for dry-hopping), & a generous dose of spicy rye. It comes in at 7%, the nose has plenty of rye along with a big hop character, and it finishes with a nice lingering bitterness.

Black with thick tan head that dissipates quickly. Smells like toasted bread and chocolate. Semi-sweet, roast, and a very full body. A baking chocolate bitterness balances.

Draft at Churchkey. Amber pour with a small head. Nose holds some nice orange peel from the Cascade, along with some nice pine and spruce that melds with the spicy rye nicely. The flavor is much of the same; my only complaint is that the bitter finish is a bit non-descript. Still, a great first effort.

Draft. Small beige head, lightly hazed dark amber body. Aroma is moderately sweet, rye, caramel, orange. Taste is moderately sweet, rye, caramel, some orange. Medium-full body, somewhat sticky. The rye dominates, not really picking up the wet hopping.

Tap. Pours clear tawny/amber with a medium, fizzy off-white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is spicy rye, earthy, fruity esters, floral and citrus hops, light alcohol, and caramel malt. Flavor is spicy hops, rye, caramel malt, earthy, fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium body, warmth, and carbonation.

Draft at Afterwords. Hazy variegated amber color, small white edge head, moderate lacing. Served a bit too cold, but the aroma and flavor really came out as it warmed. Aroma of corned beef sandwich, hold the corned beef! Nice rye and light pumpernickel aroma, in other words. Taste is bitter start to finish, with hints of sweet malt. Spices enter toward the end with a decent bitter finish. Great body and mouthfeel. Nice one!
