Brewery: Sawdust City Brewing Co.
Style: American Stout
ABV: 5.2% IBU: 35
This fantastic stout pours a pitch black with a thin head of tan foam. The head has some retention, dissipating to a thin ring as you drink. The aroma is dominated by coffee roasts and light caramel malts with a somewhat creamy note. Hints of burnt toast and a touch of cinnamon round out the scent.
Surprisingly mild for about half a second, Red Rocket Spiced Coffee Stout immediately reminds you that it is a spiced beer. Strong cayenne and cinnamon flavours explode, dominating the flavour throughout. A touch of vanilla and cream round it out and accentuate the creamy chocolate malt backbone. A very solid stout with great character, this is a real treat for spice lovers. A medium body prevents it from becoming too heavy while a prickly spice aftertaste persists long after each sip.
Spice is nice!
