Spicy Nuggs Imperial Rye Stout – Bomber Brewing (Sawdust City Brewing Co)


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.

The aroma consists of roasted malts, ash, burnt coffee and earth.  The flavour is of rye, roasted malts, burnt coffee, ash, earth, bitterness and maybe a hint of chocolate.

Commercial Description:  As a Pacific Northwest Rye Stout, you can get an idea of what we brewed here. It’s dark, its roasty and has a hint of chocolate followed by hop bitterness and the spiciness of rye! It puts a smile on our face at Doan’s, so please enjoy!
