Did I ever mention I liked a rye?
Well it’s making a welcome appearance in the beer world too.
Wicklow Wolf‘s Dawn Of The Red is one example.
The rye element is more fruity – wholesome in a saison type way – with a kind of biscuity malt note to it in a beer – in contrast to the dry peppery spice I expect in a whiskey.
Wicklow Wolf’s Imperial Rye is surprisingly refreshing & light in comparison to the heavier stout style normally associated with barrel aged beers.
There’s still those sweet treacly undertones – just to remind you this is a high strength ale – but with a top layer of dark fruitiness.
It went down very well with me!
