Se-cal-le, Latin for rye, is a German style double bock brewed with this all too underappreciate grain, then lagered in High West Rye Whiskey barrels for 6 months. This unique brew, developed by Red Rock head brewer Kevin Templin and High West distiller Brendan Coyle is the first collaboration between the two since working together at Red Rock in 2006. Double bocks are a stronger version of traditional bock that was first brewed in Munich by the Paulaner monks, an order founded by St. Francis of Paula. Historically, doppelbock was high in alcohol and sweet, thus serving as "liquid bread" for the monks during times of fasting, when solid food was not permitted. The aroma is intensely malty with some toasty notes, and the flavour is very rich with noticeable alcoholic strength and very little hops. Finishing in Rye Whiskey barrels leads to a slight spiciness with hints of clove and dry oak. 8.5% alcohol by volume Please break bread responsibly

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured clear dark brown copper color with an average frothy brown head that lasted with very good lacing. Good toasted dark rye malt and dark wood aroma. Medium body with a smooth thick texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet toasted malt flavor with a medium smooth dark sweet finish of moderate duration. Good doppelbock.

hopscotch (10557) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 16, 2012
Bottle… Clear, dark copper lager with a small, creamy, white head. Decent, thin, swirling retention. The aroma offers loads of caramel and rye whiskey with an afterthought of charred oak. Medium-bodied with a mildly creamy mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. Caramel and rye whiskey form the flavor without being the least bit hot or boozy. Malty, thin finish with a gentle rye whiskey sendoff. Bottle courtesy of newcigarz!

500ml bottle, thanks to local raters for sharing. 2013 bottle. Mostly clear red orange color. Thin ring of white head, some dots of lace. Toasty nose, dark fruit, wood. Dark fruit, mild oxidization in the flavor. Toasty spicy rye, and some alcohol, kind of vegetal, weird flavor to it. Moderate bitter taste, lighter sweet, kind of dry finish. Medium plus body. Smooth, kind of crisp lighter carbonation, with a sort of slick finish. Some tannic to to it. OK, but I’m not really fan. A little tannic, hint of tartness, dark fruit and something that reminds of stomach acid in the finish. Body doesn’t match the full creaminess of my favorite doppelbocks, doesn’t quite support the rye whiskey.

500 ml bottle from the brewery. So a Rye Bock aged in Rye Whiskey barrels, sounds awesome! Pours a murky brown color with a medium swirling white head. A sweet nose of toffee, liquor, caramel and candies. The flavor is a smooth whiskey bite, some rich bread, caramel, burnt molasses, light heat, very smooth. Loads of vanilla. Certainly some spices. Very easy to drink and quite nice.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 28, 2013
Bottle:   Deep amber, small sudsy off-white head, sparce lacing.   Sweet biscuity nose, faint alcohol.   Not getting the typical Doppelbock aroma, nor the Whiskey barrels it was aged in.   Very bready up front, but not too heavy.   Moderate biscuit like malts, soft sweetness.   As it warms I do pick up a bit of Rye, but its not terribly strong.   Overall its very smooth, thankfully not an overdone bread bomb.   The Rye and Whiskey, as it warms, are very subtle.   I swear, I need a damn 750ml of this as this 500ml is going too quick before I can fully note everything.   Faint toasted marshmallow after the finish.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Smooth, not too heavy, but the barrel aging needs to be a bit more assertive.   It is so odd because most breweries barrel age beers to the point you have no clue what the underlying beer is.   This one could have used a bit more barrel aging as far as I am concerned.   As is its smooth, not overly done in the bready sense, but its not as complex or entertaining as other barrel aged examples.   This one is much more subtle than others, but its still tasty.   Thanks for the bottle Dallas!
