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?

Nice looking pour - cloudy amber/brown color with a bountiful amount of head. Impressive. The whiskey comes through well in the aroma, but the flavor is much more balanced and complex with bits of rye, vanilla, and some woody spices. Very very smooth and drinkable - surprisingly so IMO. I would definitely drink this again if given the chance - probably the tastiest beer I’ve ever had from Boulevard.

Trev (1868) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 9, 2010
dark amber/brownish pour with a thick off white head. aroma was strong buttery oak and caramel maltiness with a hint of whiskey. flavour was a lot of buttery/vanilla oak for me with some slightly bitter rye, hints of caraway/licorice, almond. Some heat from the whisky tones combined with the alc in the finish.

750ml Bottle (#7958 of 12148): Aroma of rye, whiskey, oak, slight booze, slight vanilla, and a touch of spice. Poured amber/orange in color with a medium-sized, creamy, dense, tan head that diminished but lasted throughout. Cloudy. Very sparkling. Full of small and medium-sized particles throughout. Flavor is medium sweet and light to medium bitter. Tastes of rye, whiskey, light wood, light vanilla, light alcohol, and spice. Medium to full body. Slick, then dry texture. Average carbonation. Rye, whiskey, slight wood, light vanilla, and light alcohol finish is a tad spicy. 11%ABV is noticeable throughout, but not overbearing.

pepsican (1438) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - AUG 3, 2010
Amber pour with a big white head. Plenty of Rye and oak goodness in this one. Some caramel, vanilly, and a bit of nutmeg round this one out. Thick body but it works for the style and helps blend in the rye spice notes.

Aroma is of oak and rye bread. Strong rye flavor with some caramel and toffee malt in there as well. The rye whiskey taste is there and compliments it nicely. It mutes the sweetness of the beer very nicely. The spicy rye is very present. Unique and very good.
