Rogue Sriracha Hot Stout Beer

This is a 5.7% ABV stout from Rogue Ales of Newport, Oregon. It is brewed using Huy Fong Sriracha hot sauce, and the bottle is made to look like a bottle of the sauce. I like that the bottle refers to it as Rogue Rooster Sauce.

The beer pours black in appearance with an inch of thick, foamy, light tan head. The aroma is dark chocolate, sweet, dark roast in the first wave. Just when you wonder where the Sriracha is, bang, there is a wave of it. The two sides of chocolate and Sriracha then go round and round. The taste is predominantly chocolate and dark roast, with the Sriracha making a slow burning heat. The beer drinks with a tingling of carbonation that ups the sting of the pepper heat. This works well as a pleasant pepper stout.
