Met up with some friends from Afghanistan a couple of nights ago and went to my favorite local beer bar, Galaxy Hut. I did a little research before going to see what they would have and noticed on the menu, Boulevard’s Rye on Rye. This is an interesting combination of a Rye Pale Ale aged in Rye Whiskey Barrels. Four kinds of hops are added as well. Interestingly, brown sugar is added as well. This is a big beer and you can tell right away. The ABV is 12%. You can smell the whiskey as soon as you pick up the glass. Like some big beers, this one tends toward being a little sweet, but not annoyingly so. You can really taste the whiskey distinctly. You can also taste the brown sugar. The spicey flavor of the rye comes through as well, along with a little hoppy bite. This is a complex beer. If you see it, I highly recommend grabbing it. Five out of five proper pints.
