70/718) Caffe Volo: Red Rocket Stout by Sawdust City of Ontario: **; brewed with coffee, cayenne pepper and cinnamon; quite a blend of things to the nose; opens with vanilla and cinnamon; followed by flavours of coffee, vanilla, pepper; the finish is sweet mocha/coffee; aftertaste is pure cayenne; quite a ride - no wonder it's called Red Rocket;
My notes commented on how dark it was inside the Volo that night so maybe my daughter was on to something in February. Mind, I'd had a Shambock and an Aphrodite - good news that both are showing up again in Toronto.
Today was Opening Day for Left Field Brewery at 3030 in the Junction area. I ended up at the Toronto Silent Film Festival instead and once the film was done it was too late to make the trip, though I did consider it. I heard tell later that they didn't anticipate the response and they were running out of things so it was just as well.
