Destihl Antiquity Rye Wine

What the brewers say

“A dark copper ale with spicy/peppery notes from rye combining maltiness, oak character, and aromas/ avors like caramel, toffee, vanilla, sweet chocolate, and raisins in a full-bodied beer nicely balanced with a dry, hoppy nish.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Malty and oaky. Boozy. Sweet, spiced caramel goodness with notes of cinnamon and clove. Some hoppiness, but it’s in the background. Wine-like fruity alcohol aroma. Some vanilla and oak peek through.”

Flavor: “A malty toffee sweetness and a red fruit character (strawberry, cherry, merlot) that has melded into a single character. The alcohol is present but warming and creamy. The oak character that comes across a bit spicy in the aroma is better integrated and complementary now. Hop bitterness is fresh, resinous.”

Overall: “An enjoyable beer with lots of complexity. Very fruit forward and perhaps dangerously drinkable.”
