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?

Heavy bourbon smell upfront. Distinct rye flavor takes front stage to the bourbon flavor. Absolutely delicious beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is spicy rye & malty, medium body, medium carbonation, and thick small-bubble lacing. Taste is spicy rye, some oak, some whiskey, caramel malt, some hops, and hints of booze. The is reminiscent of a barley wine, heavy beer, but pretty good.

HappyHandsClub (18) - Iowa, USA - JUN 6, 2015
Once again, Boulevard appeals to the palate with this barrel aged and non-barrel aged blend. If it were 100% barrel aged it would be provocative and have more character. I found this brew to be a bit bland like the other Smokestack part barrel aged blends. I don’t like paying for champagne cork top bottle pricey beer and feel snake bit after I drank it.
