BrewFist / Prairie Artisan Spaghetti Western
Spaghetti Western is a collaboration between BrewFist and Prairie Artisan. This American Double/Imperial Stout is referred to as an Imperial Chocolate Coffee Stout on the label (which is great by the way!), but when you get to the list of ingredients there is a surprise. After all of the usual things you would expect to be listed is spaghetti. Yep, they actual brewed this with spaghetti. Silly, but fun!
There are some complex layers of roast, chocolate and coffee. which is all very well integrated and rather tasty. The finish is quite dry and bitter. As the beer warmed up to room temperature the chocolate exploded and there was a fantastic almond note as well. Kind of like a splash of amaretto was added to my beer when I wasn’t looking.
I’m not sure I would go out of my way to find this again, but I thoroughly enjoyed the 11.2 ounces I had and would snag another bottle off a shelf without much thought.
