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!

Appearance: Slips out a hazed, amber-gold body in color and capped with a full, foamy, off-white head. Smell: Some heady alcoholic wafts out ahead of the caramel-glazed pale malts, scant dark fruits, subdued snippets of rye, and light citrus. Taste: Establishes a sugary sweetness at the opening sip, with a slight spicy rye bread element (though, I donít find it ultimately plays a large role in the taste -- maybe a bit low-fi rye) and plenty of caramel sauce. Some dark fruitiness. Citrus and lightly resinous pine alongside a fair degree of bitterness. Itís certainly boozy throughout, finishing dry and a bit hot with a lingering bitterness to it. Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium-light carbonation. Some stickiness to the mouthfeel. Overall: Quite frankly, I found this one to be simply OK.

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.

This has a really strong alcohol nose. It comes through much milder in the palate and makes for a nice biting taste.

Bottle thanks to theAlum. A ton of dried fruit with some papery oxidation. A touch of raisins. Kinds thin. Overall solid.

Cavie (4311) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAY 22, 2011
Bottle courtesy thirdeye11. Clear orange color with very little head. Aroma is sweet sugary malts and rye chips. Flavor is sweet bread and rye with some sharp woody notes and hops. Finishes with a tingle.

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.

Maakun (4064) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 27, 2016
Bottle shared. Hazy dark orange golden with creamy beige head. Lots of spices in an almost citrus way which I guess are the caraway seeds, strong rye, citrusy hops, cardboard, light grassy, caramel, fudge, brandy. Quite sweet with lingering bitter finish. Full bodied with sticky feel but also a bit thin boozy finish. Very decent.

Butters (4047) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 18, 2010
Sampled at the Richmond Gathering XII. Big malty biscuit, caramel, scotch, sweetness helps to balance out the spicy rye character. Very good. I really like this for the sweetness.

HonkeyBra (4036) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - APR 27, 2010
Someone hooked me up with a nice pour on DLD2010. I was very excited to try this. Ruddy reddish pour, off-white head. Aroma is earthy, with noticeable herbal hop and rye notes. Flavor is spicy, fruity, some citrus. Very nice. Smooth and a pleasure to drink. Really digging the rye in this. Great beer.

Pour is a cloudy brown with a small white head. Aroma is some caramel malt with a nice hop. Flavor starts out with a nice mellwo hop then comes some almost intense rye malts to fill things out. Of all the rye beers Iíve had this one shows the rye the most. A very tasty rye barley wine
