Rogue Spirits Rolling Thunder Stouted, 58.13%

Price: $80 Issue: Fall 2021 Reviewer: David Fleming

Distilled from Rogue's Dead Guy ale without hops. Captivating aromas of charcoal, barbecue rub, dark berries, licorice, and vanilla. The palate is laden with spice and more barbecue notes—along with grilled oranges, succulent dark berries, molasses, burnt marshmallow, savory spices, and ashy fire pit. The finish comes on strong—abounding with heat and barbecue, grilled fruits, chocolate-covered espresso beans, toasted vanilla, caramel, and burnt sugar. Lovely charred and burnt notes throughout, creating our highest-scoring Rogue whiskey to date.
