Secale

Secale-NewsletterRed Rock Secale Bavarian style Dopple Bock

A collaboration between Red Rock head brewer Kevin Templin and High West distiller (former Red Rock brewer) Brendan Coyle.  The aroma is malty with a rich toasty flavor. Lagered in Rye whiskey oak barrels from Utah's High West Distillery giving it a hint of whiskey and oak. 8.5% ABV.

Beer Advocate Review:

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5 out of 5 Appearance: Pours with a small short lasting tannish colored head.  The brew is clear dark chestnut. Smell: The nose delivers clean bready maltiness, dry toast and plenty of whiskey.  Some minor vanilla notes let you know this has spent some time in barrels. Taste: The flavor has the same character as the nose, but the vanilla almost makes me think of a creamy caramel essence when combined with the big malt profile.  Finishes surprisingly dry with a lingering toast and whiskey/vanilla note that lingers for a while. Mouthfeel: Body is a touch higher than medium.  Smooth mouthfeel is accentuated by a light carbonation. Overall: This a damn well made doppelbock.  I love a good dark lager, and this one is excellent. I had my doubts about the barrel aging, but it works quite well. - More Reviews at Beer Advocate - See who else is drinking 'Secale' at Untapped Untapped-Logo
