COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Why Rye? A fair question, given this assertively flavored grain is more often associated with whiskey than with beer. Even in that arena, it has largely been eclipsed by corn and barley, the sources of bourbon and scotch, respectively. But when we procured some seasoned rye whiskey 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? Thus, Rye-on-Rye: a marriage of very similar, yet very different embodiments of this unique, distinctive grain. Two kinds of malted rye provide a 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. Rye-on-Rye’s body and character make it the equal to any sort of hearty stew or aged cheese. At the risk of seeming redundant, might we suggest pairing it with a classic pastrami-on rye? A rye beer with a hint of rye whiskey aroma, alongside a rye bread sandwich. Why not?

750 c&c bottle. Clear bright copper pour, with a large fizzy light tan head. Big rye malt flavor, with whiskey, vanilla, caramel, and some fruit. Also very hot and boozey, which is the biggest downfall of this beer.

(bottle - corked & caged 750 ml) Ruby red/copper pour with a thick tan head. Big rye bread and whiskey aroma with some sweet and caramel notes. Dry rye flavor with sweet caramel malts with a mild hop backbone. Sweet whiskey and vanilla notes come through on the aftertaste. Nice and dry and crisp.

DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 11, 2011
Bottle from Lushawn. Shit, i forgot to rate this until i had the last sip in my mouth. The flavors were very rye whiskey-like...refined yes, lots of tobacco and rye whiskey boozy-like flavors though the alcohol didnt really come across as overly boozy, at least not for something that was 11%. I would certainly sip on this again, its like drinking rye whiskey without the burn, and with bubbles. it’s a win win.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 1, 2011
Ruby brown with a mammoth beige fluffy topper, slowly dissipating. Aroma is grainy with a very noticeable rye bill. Whiskey, dark fruits, molasses, spicy wood, vanilla and alcohol round out the aromas. Taste is boozy right out the gate with a nice rye/whiskey mishmash and vanilla, dark fruit and wood hangin’ out in the background.
