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?

Emeister84 (1799) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - OCT 24, 2015
Aromas of rye whiskey, some toasted coconut, subtle vanilla, muted citrus. Clear red with a mostly lasting off-white head. Pretty well balanced, big, a little boozy, a little spicy. Full bodied, very smooth considering.

hackobock (2754) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 18, 2015
October 18, 2015. Bottle at home, vintage 2014.
Amber with a small frothy off-white head. Aroma is sweet with caramel, vanilla, baked pear, peach, whiskey, brown sugar, and hints of spicy rye and alcohol. Taste is sweet and soft bitter with some spicy notes and alcohol. Finish is sweet with caramel, canned pear, vanilla, alcohol, medium bitter, with some dry oak and spicy notes. Medium to full bodied, slightly oily texture with a dry finish, soft to average carbonation.
Good but not exceptional, a bit hot and a bit too much fruity esters.

Flaska från SB. Lagrad något år. Smak och doft av trä, whiskey, råg, sirap, brunt socker, karamell, vanilj med toner av bourbon. Rund och len, jämna och fina smaker i bra balans. Lagom sötma, lätt beska och kolsyra. Mycket gott!

Vignale (2849) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 23, 2015
Flska från SB som är något år gammal. Fin doft av rågwhiskey ganska nära bourbon, vanilj, fat och toffee. Mjuk och len, väldigt tydlig whiskeysmak utan stickig alkohol, vanilj, lätt pepprig. Inte jättekomplex. Fatlagringen tar över smakbilden väldigt mycket vilket jag i princip inte gillar men här tycker jag det funkar riktigt bra.
