Description

(Makes 5 gallons) You've never had this beer before, and, until very recently, neither had we. Imagine: a sexy, red color, spicy flavor, velvety-smooth body, terrific head, plus an aroma you could eat, all wrapped up with a firm bitterness. How did we do it? The creative shotgun approach! Continually throw enough stuff into the mix and, eventually, you score a win like this one. We started with a basic recipe similar to our famous Irish Red, but added Rye as well. A brash move? You bet! But we didn't stop there. We've added Magnum and Columbus hops everywhere, including into the carboy for dry hopping. If you want to go for a Home Run, add 1oz of the included French Oak chips after the first week of fermentation.

Outstanding choice.
I would give this beer a five if I had done a better job reading the descriptions and being patient with the aging. Re-reading the reviews highlighted exactly what my wife and I found, the longer we let it age the better it got. It’s been in the keg for six weeks now and the flavor profile is excellent. I need to be more efficient to get the alcohol volume up where I want it but the color, aroma and flavor are outstanding. Will be doing this one again.

Complex
Just poured a glass from my 2.5 keg. I kept everything in primary oak chips and all. Og 1.78 fg 1.19. Very complex, smooth and it's a beer that could send you to the couch. It's really good and nothing like I have ever had before. It deserves a nice cigar. Enjoy

Exquisite
Exquisite beer - beautiful aroma with well balance flavor profile. The rye and oak chips are spot on to compliment the bitter hop profile. the ESB is a great yeast choice too. Like most of my experience with ryes, this beer needs some aging. I was concerned when I first tasted it as there were a lot of sharp angry tones, but given some time I now love this beer. It's full of flavor and one I'd brew again.

WOW! May be the I've ever made!
I have been brewing for 4 years now. This is may be the best beer I've ever made! My mash, primary,dry hop, & oaking were to instructions. But, I aged it for 4 weeks after that, before I keged it. I cold crashed it for a week. Carbed at 30 psi for 2 days & let it equalize to my kegerator for 24 hours. And, WOW!!! It has a wonderful nose you can pick up on as you pour it. The oak is very much there. I left mine in for 10 days. It's not overpowering but very much there on the back of the tongue and in the after taste. Upfront, it reminds me of salted caramel covered in hops! All in all it's a very enjoyable complex beer. Not a mower beer but a seat on the front porch have a good cigar and enjoy kind of beer!
Not awful
Fourth all-grain attempt. It's not bad, but definitely not worth four stars. Tossing wood chips into secondary is not the same as fermenting in an oak barrel. Kind of like adding smoked salt to a an unsmoked meat or fish. Just not the same as smoked.

Great Beer
This was my 3rd all grain beer and the best I've made. Don't have the dry hopping down yet but still came out excellent. Will make this again and again

maybe i did something wrong?
i had high hopes for this beer, but think I went wrong when adding the oak chips in secondary. Should they have been boiled before adding for sanitation? I ended up with an infection and made an accidental sour beer. not bad if you are into that sort of thing. Drinkable, but I'm not writing home about it, and my friends know I have better stashed away!

Fire In the Hole is great
Awesome Beer! You will not be disappointed. There is so much going on in this beer and it all works seamlessly. Good hop nose and bitterness (not too bitter). Great malt balance with the hops. Excellent body and head retention. Very creamy. The oak chips make all the difference. I will be ordering this one again and again.
