Our "Hi-Fi Rye" is brewed with almost 60% malted rye to give this beer a very rich and intense maltiness. The American hop varieties used impart complex citric, spicy, earthy notes, and combine to amplify the rye character. The tradition of the barley wine-style ale is carried out with this ode in rye. Cheers!

Thorpe429 (5016) - , Illinois, USA - DEC 1, 2010
Shared by a generous individual at Dark Lord Day. A: Pours a nice, deep mahogany with an off-white head and a good amount of lacing. S: Initial whiff is spicy rye atop some bready biscuit malt, hints of anise, and a bit of caramel/toffee sweetness in the background. T: Slightly spicy rye is again at the fore, although there is a very nice somewhat sherry-like sweetness backing it up. M: Medium body and somewhat cloying, but not overly so, as the rye’s dry and spicy characteristics balance it out nicely. D: Very drinkable. A fairly complex brew, and one of the best beers I’ve had from Flossmoor. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 05-06-2010

Drake (11172) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - OCT 28, 2010
Bottle shared by BrewEngingeer at the 12th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering on 9/18/10. Pours a clear plum color with a thin head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of rye, toffee and an earthy finish. The taste is sweet toffee notes, bitter rye and a faintly hoppy finish. Medium-full bodied. One of the hits of the tasting for me, easily. Damn good beer. Thanks James!

ruskiimperial (308) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - OCT 13, 2010
Bottle courtesy of BrewEngineer at the 12th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering on 09/18/2010. Aroma is very sweet. This beer is fairly dark brown. Taste is quite strong of rye and caramelized sweet malts. The rye kind of overpowers overything else so if you like rye and high gravity, this is the beer for you.

From Brewengineer @ 12th Richmond Gathering: Rye, dates, and bread on the nose. Dark copper, thin head. Cloying flavor of dates. Very syrupy. I like barleywines as much as the next beer geek, but this didn’t flip my trigger. Bad ryewine.
