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?

A decent offering, well worth the money and i’d definitely get it again. Just didn’t knock my socks off. Just a bit too big of flavors for me. It was booze and spice from the rye. Nothing really else. Seemed like a bit of a hot mess, but ther flavors that were there were pretty nice.

Bottle… Tally Tasting ‘10… Clear amber ale with a mid-sized, white head. Good retention. The nose is of spicy hops and spicy grain. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. Spicy, coarse, dry flavor and finish.

Bottle thanks to drfabulous. Pours a very dark amber, almost reddish. Nose and taste of rye, caramel malts and whiskey barrel. Very smooth and tasty with slight whiskey aftertaste. I also detect some subtle grape and vinous notes.

750 ml bottle thanks to Eugene, shared with some folks during Mormon fourth of July, which comes on the 3rd by the way. Pours a light brown color with a huge beige head. The aroma is massive whiskey, some wood as well. The flavor is likewise dominated by whiskey, some spicy rye, loads of buttery whiskey and spicy hops. Good.

6/26/10. Shared at the Tally Tasting 2010 by me. This is literally the notes I took (it was a bit late in the tasting): I can’t even keep up. Love the bourbon, love the spicy rye. Hell yes. Mmmmm.
