COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Why Rye? A fair question, given this assertively flavored grain is more often associated with whiskey than with beer. Even in that arena, it has largely been eclipsed by corn and barley, the sources of bourbon and scotch, respectively. But when we procured some seasoned rye whiskey barrels from our friends at Templeton Rye, we asked ourselves, "Why not?" Why not brew a rich, tawny rye ale, then mellow it in the warmth of charred oak rye whiskey casks? Thus, Rye-on-Rye: a marriage of very similar, yet very different embodiments of this unique, distinctive grain. Two kinds of malted rye provide a spicy sweetness, giving way to notes of caramelized wood and the citrusy tang of Perle, Magnum and Saphir hops before easing into a dry, lingering finish. Rye-on-Rye’s body and character make it the equal to any sort of hearty stew or aged cheese. At the risk of seeming redundant, might we suggest pairing it with a classic pastrami-on rye? A rye beer with a hint of rye whiskey aroma, alongside a rye bread sandwich. Why not?

blahbobbyblah (107) - Texas, USA - MAR 29, 2016
Poured from bottle. Nice thick head. A dark Amber color. Strong hints of alcohol. 12% and a large bottle so this is what I need for today. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tstamba (775) - Maryland, USA - MAR 26, 2016
Draft at Paradiso. Tawny brown with mocha head. Aroma is rye toast and brown sugar. Full bodied, nice notes from the whisky and the barrel, layered flavors, smooth boozy finish. Yum.

coachd (860) - Missouri, USA - MAR 18, 2016
Spicy rye boozy aroma with plenty of vanilla and bourbon barrel. Nice looking light brown color with a thin cap of cream colored foam. Very drinkable yet spicy with a tinge of booze and sweetness to balance. Good palate, overall good not great. I've had better boulevard smokestack offerings. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

NoLedge21 (19) - Florida, USA - MAR 9, 2016
Cloudy deep amber. Nice looking head. Creamy mouthfeel. Velvety. Vanilla on the nose. Great beer, but I’m not a fan of sweet beers. Reminiscent of a belgian style ale. The rye is there, but the sweetness takes from the spice.

jflopsu (1627) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 5, 2016
Pours a clear dark red-amber with white head. A very strong rye grain alcohol, malt, and fruit aroma. A strong taste of dark alcohol, dark fruits, malts, and caramel. A strong alcoholic lingering flavor with dark fruits.

4.4
hopbag (159) - - MAR 3, 2016
Exceptionally balanced and drinkable at 12%. A little sweet with bright bitterness and rye spice. Full mouthfeel rounded out with dried fruit, reminiscent of a Belgian strong. Hints of vanilla and booze. The fruit, booze, and vanilla make me think red sangria. Cloudy deep red color. Not a lot of aroma, but it deserves a high score. Brilliant concept and execution. Pair with fatty red meat and spice.

4.3
Beachmaster (566) - Oklahoma, USA - FEB 27, 2016
On draught into a snifter. Pours a light brown with a moderate white head. Nose is spicy malt and caramel, and the taste follows. Hides the ABV well. Nicely balanced and quite tasty. Very good.

3.4
Bebum (1012) - Massachusetts, USA - FEB 26, 2016
Clear, medium copper, no lace. Full body, moderate flavor, very hot mouthfeel with low carbonation, avg length. Moderately bittersweet. Caramel, sherry, barley drops, alcohol flavor. Not very distinctive but I'm not a spirit drinker. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.8
