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?

Bottle pours cloudy dark brown with full off-white fairly persistent head. Aroma mainly malts and rye whiskey. Taste sweet malts, rye and whiskey. Palate thin and highly carbonated with a nice tingle. Finish a little hop dullness with whiskey burn. Alcohol quite apparent.

I enjoyed this quite a bit. Not particularly complex but pretty good.

Awesome Rye. Dark pour with a tight head. Aroma of Rye bread with a whiskey finish. I am not much on Rye whiskey but this hits the spot. The citrus hops accompany well.

halfonit (1356) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 24, 2012
On tap at Battleship. Pours a murky brown muddy color. Aroma is of bourbon, oak, rye, grain, and dough. Flavor is of booze, bourbon, barley, hops and rye. Leaves a strong bourbon and rye finish.

Not always a rye beer fanatic but I liked the mix of bourbon with bourbon rye. I felt the rye malt itself in the beer form tonded down the boozy notes a bit.

Awesome-looking beer, dark brown/amber w/ a voluminous white head.. Profound aroma w/ rye whiskey prominent, pleasant malty backbone, dates, brown sugar.. same profile in the mouth, really delicious, complex, myriad of malty flavors married with sharp rye character, a little heat, liqueur-like.. great.

Bricktop86 (839) - Moore, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 16, 2012
Pours dark cloudy ruby red with a lot of fluffy tan head. Smells of rye bread. Taste reminds me of good bourbon; sweet, rich and just barley sour. Spicy and warming on the finish. If you’re like me and enjoy whiskey then this one is for you
