Sierra Nevada Rain Check Spiced Stout
Sierra Nevada Rain Check Spiced Stout is an American Double/Imperial Stout that is “spiked” with ginger and lime. Created to ease the pain of the rain soaked delays of the construction of the new Mills River, NC brewery.
Very nice smell to this one, a lot of roast and rather spicy with just a hint of coffee as well. That roast comes out in the taste, along with a lot of the ginger. I was afraid it was going to be too much at first, but this stout is pleasantly sweet. I have heard people say that the lime comes out as it warms, but I honestly never got much of it.
This is a lovely little stout, and I sure hope the 2014 on the label means this will be a yearly offering!
