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!

shared on 4/12/10 by dakine. nutty brown color with a pale tannish head. it smells like toasted caraway seeds, malt, caramel and mint. the flavor is quite heavy on rye.... caramel is there as well as spice and a bitter finish. medium body. rich but rye spice thins it out a touch. neat.8/4/8/4/17/4.1

22oz bottle. Pours brown with a small tan had. Aroma is of rye, malt, dark fruit, sugar, and caramel. Taste is actually pretty big on the rye. There is also lots of dark fruit, sugar, spice, and caramel. Very dry malt base evens the beer out. As it warms, more raisin starts to come through. Lingering taste of rye and dark fruit. Very light, creamy mouthfeel. It’s boozy, but not in a bad way. I really liked this beer.

Thanks to Josh for sharing. Pours a deeper amber with a creamy bubbly off white head. Aroma of sweet rye, caramel, dark fruits. Flavor was sweet like a barleywine with a nice rye bread finish.

UPDATED: JUN 17, 2011 A big thanks to Alex for this tasty treat. Pours clear mahogany with thin tan head. The aroma has smooth dark fruitiness, a nice load of rye spiciness and then a bit of booze heat. The taste is a wonderful mix of sweet dark fruitiness and spicy rye that blends into pervasive yet constrained yum! This stuff is smooth sweet spicy and wonderful. Wow!

Amber color with a small, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of rye, caramel, citrus fruits, floral hops, pine, toffee, and alcohol. Taste of citrus fruits, pine, tobacco, rye, caramel malts, nuts, and light alcohol in the finish.
