The origin of Rye on Rye can be traced back to 2009 when we had the opportunity to add freshly emptied Templeton Rye casks to our barrel collection. At the time we agreed to purchase the barrels, we didn’t have a beer in mind, but Brewmaster Steven Pauwels and our brewing and quality teams quickly decided it would be interesting (and ultimately crazy delicious) to explore what would happen to a giant, tawny rye beer if we aged it in wet rye whiskey barrels following primary fermentation. The 2019 release, Rye on Rye 6, is extra special - thanks to some fantastic barrels from our friends in Iowa. Templeton Rye is typically barrel-aged for at least four years. Occasionally, however, a special batch is allowed to slumber for two more. To our great good fortune, a truckload of those six-year barrels found their way to us. This tawny celebration of spicy rye malt and rye whiskey delivers notes of vanilla and charred oak with a delightful, boozy sweetness.

    Dark amber colour with a warm-beige frothy head, good stay and some some bubbly lacing. Lots of bananas in the nose with some caramel malt base. The whiskey barrel aging does show in the taste with the vanilla-banana flavours. The mouthfeel is nicely balanced to not be to rich, syrupy. I still find there is more wheat than rye, as not as spicy as the grain should do. I think the barrel aging was done for quite a long time, as this really stands out. Good if you like this.

    Taps translucent mahogany with a minimal beige head. Aroma yields vanilla, dark fruit, toasted malt, rye and bourbon tones. Flavor presents bourbon, cherry, toasted malt, caramel, vanilla and rye notes - this is a beast, so drink it slowly! Texture features lively fizz and smooth, firm body. Rye not?
