From Bomber Brewing in Vancouver in collaboration with Sawdust City Brewing Co out of Gravenhurst Ontario comes their “Spicy Nuggs Imperial Rye Stout”. The beer pours an opaque black with a brown head. The aroma consists of roasted malts, smoke, ash, earth, rye, chocolate, anise and a hint of hops. The flavour is of roasted malts, smoke, ash, earth, chocolate, anise, big rye spice, chipotle pepper and hops bitterness. The alcohol content comes in at 9% with an IBU of 70. While I usually don’t really enjoy spiced beer I saw some real potential in this one and all of that potential and more was realized and more! This beer is an awesome mixture of flavour.
Commercial Description: Forged in the fiery furnaces of a new-found friendship, Spicy Nuggs Imperial Rye Stout is a festival of flavours and one F’n good collaboration. Ridiculous measures of roasted and rye malts lay the base, while spicy nugget hop hash and smoky chipotle pepper bring the heat to this massive inter-provincial ale.
