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?

fiulijn (15060) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 22, 2014
Corked bottle from QFC, Capitol Hill, Seattle; vintage 2014
Hazy amber color with compact head. Intense aroma from the barrel, Bourbon like; but then it gets replaced by some soap feeling, vegetables, tomatoes. Smooth mouthfeel, full bodied; straws and malt flavor, some barrel, light peppery/spicy touch, some vegetables, high alcohol perception.
At first it has a great nose, but then it goes downhill. It’s chaotic, and excessive.
