COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Finally getting around to reviewing this, thanks Alex. Review # 1600. Bottle poured into a perfect pint glass...Pours a lighter transparent brown with tons of red accents. An off white head rises about a finger, falls quickly leaving only a ring and a little lacing...The aroma is sweet, almost too sweet for a barleywine, hops aren’t present to cut that. Rye, alcohol, spices, caramel. Good, not great...The taste is better, certainly more balanced and closer to a barleywine. Great quad notes of dark fruits, and brown sugar balanced with some roast and hops. Rye backbone throughout this. This is pretty decent, needs some work, but I would drink it again.

Bomber thanks to thetomG on BA. Deep reddish-amber pour with a small off-white head. Sweet caramel malts, toffee, and red berries in the aroma along with some rye. The flavor is mildly sweet but pretty good. Caramel and toffee malt base along with a good rye spiciness. Rye is big - bitterness seems to come from that as well as the hops. Somewhat sweet and also a bit hoppy. Medium-bodied for the style with average carbonation and pretty good smoothness. I like it. Not very barleywine-like really but a solid rye beer.

22oz bottle, shared at Sexual Chocolate 2011. Pours a dark amber, great rye aroma, slightly hoppy, but the rye dominates. Very bitter, dry, moderate hop character. Nice but not my favorite.

StoutFest (77) - Stoutville, Illinois, USA - FEB 28, 2011
Pours clear, the color of apple juice but sits a clear red in glass. Soft tan head that disappears quickly. Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation. Aromas of hops, caramel, and straw. Flavors of hops, straw, bready notes, spice and sweetness. Ends with a sticky mouthfeel and a dry finish. Smooth and drinkable for ABV even though it gives a chest warming feel.
