Flying Dog Snake Oil Black Lager

Recommended Posts

The latest Brewhouse Rarity from Flying Dog is Snake Oil Black Lager.  Brewed in conjunction with Woodberry Kitchen, this beer pours pitch black with an overpowering smokiness on the nose.  The flavor is pure smoke (from mesquite smoked malt) and heat imparted by fish pepper hot peppers.  The heat is really there in this beer, in the front.  It is kind of a punch you in the face spice, which I have not ever experienced in a beer.  I am not saying I didn't like it, just that it is unique, especially when paired with the smokiness from the malt.  I imagine this would go really well with some BBQ, maybe even some other spicy food.  If you are going to try this, it make wreck your palate, so consider yourself warned.  That being said, I think if you like heat, you should give it a try.
