Rogue Sriracha Hot Stout Beer

Oregon’s Rogue Ales & Spirits presents Sriracha Hot Stout Beer. It’s exactly what it sounds like. It’s a stout brewed with Huy Fong Sriracha. They went all out on this beer. It looks like the iconic Huy Fong Sriracha bottle. It’s red, it has the rooster on it, and it even has a green bottle cap with its own little rooster. I spotted it while I was celebrating Beer Week at Rogue Ales Public House in San Francisco last night. The couple at the table next to me had it and I knew that I had to get it right away. I ordered a bottle for the table and we all went on a trip to flavor country. The aroma is of garlic, Sriracha, and chili peppers. It has hints of chocolate, roast coffee beans, maybe a little smoke, but the Sriracha flavor steals the show. It’s subtle at first and then the spiciness starts to sneak in, intensifying with each sip, just like Sriracha does. It lingers better than any other hot sauce. It’s good. I could drink a whole bottle, but I wouldn’t do two in a row. It’s a beer worth trying, so definitely grab it if you ever get the chance. It’s a cool beer and one that I will remember for a long time. I even kept the empty bottle (along with the cap) as a keepsake. It will look nice on my shelf and it’s a guaranteed conversation starter.

Voodoo Doughnut Pretzel, Raspberry & Chocolate Ale

Voodoo Doughnut Pretzel, Raspberry & Chocolate Ale is an American Brown Ale from Oregon’s Rogue Ales. Rogue is known for interesting and unique brews, and this is one of their more extreme offerings. It pours a dark brown with a creamy tan head. It has an intriguing aroma with chocolate and toasted malts, vanilla, raspberry, caramel, and coffee. It smells good, but it tastes even better. It’s sweet, chocolate, and you get the sweet and tangy sensation of raspberry, but and a hint of pretzel. It’s slightly salty and has bread/biscuit thing going on. It’s unlike any other brown ale I’ve tasted. You actually see the cocoa powder clinging to the side of the glass as you drink it. It has a decent 6.75% alcohol content and it makes for an excellent dessert beverage. I wouldn’t want to drink more than one though. It comes in a bright pink bottle with a gingerbread man-like voodoo doll on the label. It stands out on the shelf and that’s hard to do these days. This is a good beer and worth trying out, but I don’t think it will become your favorite beer.
