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?

750ml bottle from someone, thanks bro! Holy hell is there a lot of whiskey aroma and flavor in this one. They ain’t a shittin when they say rye on rye. I have a feeling this is gonna get me buzzed quick after I pound this bad boy in less than 5 minutes, so here we go... Pours a cloudy amber color with a generous amount of head. Heavy notes of whiskey bottles (brand new cars), but not too much coke or too much smoke. Taste is malt forward, some booze but not hot, just a pleasing tingle that touches every corner of my mouth. Slightly sweet but finishes dry. Warming. This is a very good beer.

Oh yeah, that’s good stuff. Gorgeous pour, tawny, red gold in the glass with a substantial lingering head. Smoky, assertive rye ale with a slight boozy rye whiskey presence on the palate. Read the product description, read the reviews, this is a can’t miss brew.

The appearance is a gorgeous clear ruby red with a small white head that fades quickly to a ring, and the aroma is reminiscent of booze, rye, and caramel malts, which is a sweet yet savory scent. The taste is a phenomenal blend of a heavy sweetness, mild umami, and touch of sourness, and the palate fuses an oily texture, flat carbonation, medium body, and a long finish.

This is not my favorite Boulevard beer, but regardless, it is executed excellently... as always. This full bodied beer is slightly boozy and seems it could benefit from some time being laid down. While I would recommend that anyone try this beer, I will probably purchase the Saison-Brett or Bourbon Barrel Quad over this one next time around.

Another winner from Boulevard. Woody oak centered flavor. The rye notes are light. Perfectly balanced, slight hop presence. This is how a beer should be made. Excellent.

Aroma:A little banana, a lot of bourbon, and a little rye. Appearance:Dark amber in color, lots of head, good retention. Taste:Bourbon, vanilla, rye flavors, spices, dark fruits. Palate:Medium to heavy body, very smooth, good carbonation. Overall:This is a very tasty beer, lots of complex flavors, a great sipper.

10 oz draft pour from a freshly tapped 2012 keg. Beautiful red-dark red hue with a thin, dissipating white head. Smells strongly of whiskey and lightly of rye spice. First taste is confusion and eventually bliss. Earthy spicy and wood notes are washed away by stronger oak and whiskey bite. Finish is clean and leaves a perfectly sweet aftertaste. Given the high ABV and barrel aging, I’d say the alcohol is well-hidden (though I am a whiskey drinker). This is Boulevard’s best brew. I expect this to age extremely well.

750 ml. bottle. Served in a snifter. Pours a caramel color with quite a bit of protein sediment. Aroma of whiskey, wood, and a slight sour quality. Flavors of caramel, whiskey, and wood. A slight burn on the finish but enough sweetness to balance it. Very unique. An absolutely fantastic beer.

A: Reddish/Mild Orangish Hue, Passes Some Light, Off White Head Ring, Some Lacing S: Rye Bourbon Barrel Sweetness, Honey, Rye T: Rye Bourbon, Honey, Rye, Mild Sweet Bread M: Decent Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Mildly Sweet, Mildly Boozy Overall, you really get the rye barrel taste and the rye grains seperately but they mesh well together too. Solid.

Pours with a light mohagony brown with an offwhite head. Aroma is of rye whiskey, light oak, vanilla and maybe a little hoppiness. Palate is light and somewhat carbonated with rye whiskey on the front with some spicey oak on the back end. Finish is of hop and maybe a vanilla end. Another superb rye beer with an extra love bite of rye.
