COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
One of the few small grains still grown in southwestern Minnesota, malted rye is the base for this one of a kind ale brewed and aged in tiny Lucan, Minnesota. Following a long, slow fermentation, the beer is stored away in used rye whiskey barrels brought north from our friends at Templeton, located in the equally tiny town of Templeton, Iowa.

Hazy brown - amber beer. Good cream coloured head. Smooth softish palate with super fine carbonation. Mild sweet tangy bourbon. Coconut. Mild dried fruits. A little spice in the finish. Decent beer but needs something else to bring it to greatness.

brokensail (11540) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 12, 2012
The pour is a clear copper color with a small tan head. Light citrus and pine hops on the nose, definitely a lot of rye, bread, and toffee. There’s a hint of toast, some whiskey, and a nice bit of vanilla. The flavor is a bit more pine forward than expected and somewhat bitter. Sweet caramel and toffee malts, vanilla, and whiskey to balance that out. Quite a bit of rye malt, light citrus flavor to it as well.

Bottle shared by Marcus. Pours dark amber brown with beige bubbles. Aroma is alcohol. Full bodied. Slightly sticky. Flavor is boozy, rye, oak astringent. Far from dry, but the sweet is not obnoxious. Pretty tasty stuff. Heat is omnipresent, but not bothersome.
