COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

Pours a dark ruby color with a moderate two fingers of off-white head. The nose has a dry roasted malt aroma along with a light rye spiciness. Its rounded out with a mild caramel malt and vanilla aroma. The taste starts with Caramel malts and toffee. Chocolate covered raisins come next come next with a dry rye spiciness. Hints of vanilla and whiskey come next in the end, as well as a subdued hop bitterness that balances the malty sweetness in the finish. The body is full and the whiskey notes become a bit more pronounced as it warms. The 8.5% abv is well hidden but sneaks up you quickly. This one damn fine lager. It has an outstanding aroma with a great taste and smoothness. It is a good traditional representation of the Bavarian style with a nice blend of rye malt - that is there, but not overly done - Traditional, yet unique. Highly recommended!

Purchased from Brewfloria in Boise, Id. Soft, drinkable, smooth and sweetly complex. Drank it slowly in order to save it. So far, its my favorite thing from Utah.

BrewMstr (194) - Pleasant View, Utah, USA - DEC 5, 2015
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!

500 ml bottle from the brewery. So a Rye Bock aged in Rye Whiskey barrels, sounds awesome! Pours a murky brown color with a medium swirling white head. A sweet nose of toffee, liquor, caramel and candies. The flavor is a smooth whiskey bite, some rich bread, caramel, burnt molasses, light heat, very smooth. Loads of vanilla. Certainly some spices. Very easy to drink and quite nice.

Cybercat (5236) - Georgia, USA - MAR 14, 2013
Pours a clear, dark cola brown with a decent, if not too persistent, wheat head. Aroma has notes of roast malt, rye and whisky-soaked wood plus hints of hops and caramel. Robust flavor delights with earthy, fruity, oak, malt and cloves notes plus subtle whisky, caramel and hoppy tones. Smooth texture has good firmness, if not a whole lot of fizz. Go ahead, crack one open (but dont crack yourself!)

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.
