A series where I trying to drink my way through a fridge full of beer. Currently three-fourths of my shelves have been overtaken with 6-packs and 22 ouncers. I need room for my groceries! I’ll pick a new beer each week and give it a taste. I’ll provide the specs and review my choice based on how many “miles” I think it can go. The more miles…the better the beer. Brews can range from simple 5k (3.2 Mile) beers to more advanced 10k (6.2 Miles). And if I find a marathon (26.2 Mile) beer…well, I’ll pledge to run my own marathon. I’m thirsty. Let’s drink and see how many miles these beers from my fridge can log!
Rogue Sriracha Hot Stout
Purchased at: PDX Airport
Size: 22oz Bomber
Style: Stout/Chile Beer
“Miles” (aka Rate): 6.2 a 10K!
First of all: This beer doesn’t taste like Sriracha. I love Sriracha. I could probably drink it from the bottle. But that doesn’t mean I’d want to…or that my stomach would want me to.
This brew is called “Sriracha Hot.” You’ll get a heat from this uber popular condiment without the full flavor.
The burn in this 22oz Bomber comes towards the back of your throat. But upfront the brew is a stout all the way, offering deep, dark smooth chocolate tones. Like a good bar of Lindt Chocolate.–effortlessly smooth rich and sweetly deep. I enjoy the lingering tingle by my tonsils.
Solid Stout from Rogue.
