Rain Check Spiced Stout is our answer to the merciless wet weather that plagued and slowed the construction of our new brewery in Mills River, NC. This dark, rich, and roasty beer helps us forget the delays - a Rain Check well take anytime. Rain Check is a rich, toasty stout with flavors of burnt sugar and dark roasted malt spiked with ginger and lime to celebrate the end of dark and rainy days.

Medium bodied Imp stout thats roasty and slightly sweet. Easy to 9rink at 9%. I dont get any of the ginger or lime notes, but solid brew overall.

Kleg (159) - The Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 17, 2017
Pitch black pour with a small light brown head and good retention. Good lacing. Thin mouthfeel for a stout. Taste is burnt cocoa, spiced coffee, some dark fruits and alcohol. Too strong. 8.9 ABV isnt hidden enough for me.

DiarmaidBHK (4455) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 19, 2016
Draft at Sierra Nevada NC. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Leaves trace lacing in the glass. Notes of caramel malt on the nose. Fairly malty on the tongue with the ginger coming through the most. Hides its booze well. Solid, drinkable, but not spectacular.

AdamChandler (4829) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - APR 18, 2016
not quite black, lots of red edges. the faint aroma I do get is better and ginger. Quite spicy. Cinnamon, honey, clove, ginger, tree bark, roast starts and is overloaded b spice. I do get barrel at the start and finish, certainly whiskey barrel. Surprised by the ABV. it drinks much lighter than the abv suggests.

On tap in North Carolina, deep brown with a thick head. Mild roasted aroma. Medium body with flavors of brown sugar, light coffee, and a little ginger. Interesting.

tmongoose (2371) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 28, 2016
draft to sampler. wow a nice little nuance to a stout adding a touch of ginger. not my favorite spice but made this one a little different. nice roasty malt nose with hints of sweet and ginger. the flavor was more of the same and it was pretty decent only a small sample but I like how the flavors of the roasted malts and ginger blended with the sweet.

Ginger nose and minimal head. Good lacing. Opaque coffee color. Sweet flavor with ginger hints, palate cleaned up nicely with the hops. Aftertaste lingers a bit.

Bottle via trade with bhensonb - thanks! Shared with Max and Podey. Pours a deep brown body with thin lacing. Mouthfeel is chewy with notes of sweet roast, light spice, soft fruit and dirt.

TXBadger (2733) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Pours an opaque dark brown almost black color with khaki colored head. Spice, roasted malt, and some raw cocoa notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied, a little thin for the style. Finishes with spice and roast.

hopscotch (10944) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 5, 2016
Bottle... Pours black with a minimal, off-white head. Not much of a nose at all maybe some malty and roasty notes. Medium to full-bodied with buzzing carbonation. The flavor is roasty and a touch acrid, but mostly just sweet and lightly spicy. Finishes crisp, and then bittersweet.
