There’s a whole set of beers now that attract people because of gimmicks. Some include goat’s brains, Rocky Mountain Oysters or something else for them to stand out. This beer includes the use of spaghetti as an adjunct. I’m not sure exactly what the goal of that was, but let’s give it a shot.
Style: American Double/Imperial Stout
Trivia: This is a collaboration beer with Prairie Artisan Ales.
Random: I am not normally one for a gimmicky beer. I didn’t know it had spaghetti until I went to open it.
This beer poured with a thick, one finger, light brown head that dissipated slowly. It left light lacing on the glass. The body was a dark brown with no visible carbonation due to the color. The nose was filled with coffee, roasted malts and smoke. Dark chocolate came along for the ride too. The taste was even more roasty than the nose. Lots of roasted malts that transitioned into deep coffee and dark chocolate. I (shockingly) don’t pick up any spaghetti. It also had some ash as well. The body was only medium thick with light carbonation. It had a long finish with ash and roasted malts. The booze was hidden as well. This was an intense beer and if you don’t like coffee or ash, this beer isn’t for you. But, it was something a bit different in the style, and I really enjoyed it. This beer was expensive at $7.99 for the twelve ounce bottle ($.67 per ounce), but I’m glad I got to try it.
