COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
One of the few small grains still grown in southwestern Minnesota, malted rye is the base for this one of a kind ale brewed and aged in tiny Lucan, Minnesota. Following a long, slow fermentation, the beer is stored away in used rye whiskey barrels brought north from our friends at Templeton, located in the equally tiny town of Templeton, Iowa.

Brown pour, tan head. Nice spicy rye whiskey notes, brown sugar, toffee, very light on the hop bitterness. Sweet and rich. Good stuff.

Wow, I cant believe this beer is still on the shelves. 3 years old and awesome. Toasted coconut, vanilla, rye,spice, earthy. Alcohol is hidden well. Excellent brew after three years!

Red waxed 75cl bottle, courtesy of a trade with . . . (sadly, don’t remember). It pours with a dark mahogany colored body that supports a nice looking tan head of foam. The aroma offers up malts, molasses, a malt sweetened rye twang, some spicy wood that has a pine hop feel to it and a faint sweet vanilla note. The taste is smooth and pretty rich. It delivers thick malt sweetened notes, sweetened rye and then a mild to slightly harsh booziness. Around the edges are thin rings of spicy oak and vanilla. Pretty darn nice.

2011 bomber. Nice brown pour. Nose of malt, booze, and vanilla. Taste follows the nose with some sharp rye spiciness. A little unpleasant bitterness on the back end. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark brown, copper color. Small head. Whiskey aroma and aftertaste. Rye beer base not my favorite for a barrel aged beer but a decent brew anyway. Worth trying.

Bottle at the parentals with my dad. 2011 Vintage. Pour is murky brown with a very small tan colored head. Caramelly, bourbony, toffee, raisins, figgy, light grapefruity, sweet bready, and toasty aroma. Taste is sweet malty, caramelly, lightly alcoholic, toffee, figs, heavy bourbon, grass, and orange peels with a light bitter finish. Thick syrupy mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Decent stuff but is probably a bit past its prime at this point.

Bottle. Whiskey, grenadine, with a really high sugar content. Lots of candy notes, sometimes taffy or jelly beans. Thick body, long finish, very interesting.
