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 purchased from the location on 200 west - Pours a clear, deep ruby red color with minimal off white head that dissapears fairly quickly. Aroma has notes of whiskey, spicey winter rye, treacle, raisens, medium toasted dry oak, faint caramel, and the faintest note of star anise. Flavor has a solid Munich-driven malt character, with prominent caramel notes and oak, hints of whiskey that are not overpowering, along with vanilla and a faint roastyness. Finish is a bit on the sweet side. I would agree with others that the palate seems a bit thin, especially for everything else this beer is bringing. This is probably because it is slightly undercarbonated IMO. I think some extra CO2 would liven this up just a bit. Still, this is a really nice beer - one of the better Utah beers I’ve ever had. Although I think it falls just short of spectacular, in a state where creative beers are in a bit of a short supply, this really delivers. I hope that this is the future of Utah beer.

2015 bottle. Clear deep amber color with a short lived beige head. Fruity nose with some spice and whiskey barrel. Caramel sweetness with a hint of wood and a warming touch of whiskey. There is a bit of toasted bread, ripe fruit, vanilla and a some spice. It is all subtle in this era of huge barrel aged Imperial Stouts. Quite nice.

Bottle. Very nice, sweetness and rye and whiskey balanced. Toffee and caramel front, bock sweetness, then just a hint of the whiskey barrel. Probably better with age, though quite decent as is!

It says 2012 on the label, for what that’s worth. Brownish mahogany, with a thin beige head. Smells like prune, rey whiskey and oak. Flavor is surprisingly winey, given the aroma. Red wine, lightly tart, some vanilla and toast. Dryish finish.

Whiskey and caramel malt aroma. Vanilla, and subtle wood. Caramel flavor, and sweet malt. Whiskey/vanilla, ans some sweet tartness. Whiskey character is pretty well-balanced with the malt.

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.

500 ml bottle shared with the group. Pours a slightly hazy dark amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have dark fruits, sweet malts, a touch of wood, some hints of spicy rye whiskey, good body and mouthfeel, toasted bread, solid beer.

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.

Bottle to glass. Muddy tan brown not much head. Malty brown sugar and plums aroma with some pulpy wood. Wood malt and plums starts but then it turns sour. The beer finishes with a sour apple vinegar taste. Definitely not to style and hopefully not intended. As an ode brune I’d rate it higher but as a doppel bock its not good. Serious signs of infection.

Thanks stevencon! Deep hazy ruby pour with a small bubbly white head sweet toasted bread aroma, caramel malts, brown sugar, pancake syrup and molasses. Flavor has a weird amount of vinegar and acid to it along with brown sugar and toasted bread. If you were going to tell me this was a sour red/brown I would be surprised. Not bad though with some green apple. Not sure how to rate this.....
