New Beer Friday 5/4/12
While Secale is on hiatus (aging in barrels), there's a new offering at the Bayou that will tide you over 'till it returns.
Part of the Smokestack Series, Boulevard's Rye-on-Rye takes advantage of the assertive spiciness of rye to provide spicy sweetness, giving way to notes of caramelized wood and the citrusy tang.
It just came in last night, I haven't had the pleasure yet, but guaranteed I'll be sampling and comparing this evening. 750ml. 11% ABV.
(note: that is not Mark Alston from the Bayou pictured above. It is in fact master illusionist and warlock, Doug Henning. I can understand the confusion.)
