COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The rhinoceros may not be the king of the jungle, but he commands respect nonetheless. Powerful and distinctive, Telegraph Rhinoceros pays homage to one of the world’s most majestic and endangered creatures. Brewed with a hefty dose of rye malt and balanced by a ridiculous amount of hops, our "rye wine" is truly a unique beast. Be careful... this rhino may seem mellow at first, but is known to charge unexpectedly!

Pours a lightly hazy amber with a large foamy white head. Aroma of American hops (citrus, floral and piney), toffee and light dark fruits. Flavor of toasted malt, dark fruits, spicy rye notes, caramel and a good bit of hop flavor and bitterness.

Bottled 3/13/2009, thanks to Bman1113vr. Orange body under an off white head. Aroma is yeasty, caramel, and a slight vanilla. Flavor is caramel, dirty, and malty.

750ml from South Bay. A rye whine, eh? I’ll buy that. Nice translucent copper pour with an extremely fast-rising head and abundant lacing. Sharp phenols in the nose along with sweet malts, sharp rye, an almost coconut-like scent in there too. Body is fairly nice, though ultimately could be thicker and the palate bolder. A bit hot to the taste, like an amped up Rye-PA, without the depth of a good BW. Still, there was something about the sweet flavors mixed with the sharp finish that appealed over time. Or maybe that was just the ABV.

鼮ml, bottled Mar 13, 2009 and consumed in July 2009, courtesy of BMan1113VR) Pours a cloudy burnt orange body with a thick frothy beige head. Aroma of mustiness, yeast, rye, caramel, and nuts. Flavor of rye, caramel, earth, yeast, roasted malt, and nuts with a dry finish.

Snojerk321 (2975) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 1, 2009
750ml bottle from South Bay Drugs. Pours a mostly clear copper color with a gushing beige head. Nose of booze, candied tree fruits, and more booze. Tastes like vodka spiked apricots, finishes with a strange metallic astringency. I’ve had a run of drain pours the last few days......this one almost made that list.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - AUG 18, 2009
Bottle: Deep copper with a big fading light tan head. Dry yeast character in the aroma- almost like brett- some rustic charcter, bitter fruit skin tannins and a light malt sweetness giving off vanilla and fig. Quite fluffy on the palate. Feels like a Belgian yeast (wild). Spicy yeast character dries out the caramel malt and dark fruit (fig). Peppery on the back. An interesting, rustic Barley Wine.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2009
Bottle 65 cl. Hazy amber golden with a rough, off-white head. Aroma of yeast, nuts and strong alcohol. Quite full-bodied with plenty of nuts and dried fruit with a little yeastiness. Distinct alcohol and phenols in the finish with a somewhat unrefined hopping. 110709

italarican (1470) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - AUG 13, 2009
Thanks to the Queens RB crew! Pours a copper color with a slightly airy white head. Interesting aroma of pineapple, strawberry, yeast, grass, and pumpernickel bread. Predominant flavor of citrus hops: pineapple, grapefruit, and grass. There’s a slightly prickly, boozy finish. The hops rush back in during the finish but are secondary to the alcohol feel.

juiceisloose (1055) - Windermere, Florida, USA - AUG 7, 2009
750ml bottle courtesy beerlando. Pours a dark amberish orange color topped by a small, foamy tan colored head. The aroma is interesting showing notes of spicy rye malts, citrus fruits, bananas, and booze. The flavor follows with bready yeast and spicy rye grains to go with a dose of citrus hops adding a pepper spice and bitterness. Medium bodied and quite syrupy on the mouthfeel with a lengthy rye spice finish. Definitely an interesting beer just not one I would revisit very often.

75 cL bottle. Pours hazy orange with a small white and collapsing head. Dense fruity and roasted malt aroma. Sweet and solid phenolic flavoured with a distinct alcohol presence. Warming alcohol flavoured finish.
