Riggwelter is a pretty good beer. The Black Sheep website says there’s banana fruit aromas, but I didn’t get that from it. It was rich and malty, and a bit sweet. Copper-brown color, nice rich head on it. On BeerAdvocate many of the reviews mention the nice lacing, which I concur on. It also accumulates a respectable score of 86 over there.
At 5.7% alcohol, it’s not terribly strong, but it comes in larger-than-average bottle, so it’s akin to drinking two 12-ounce bottles of an average beer.
Overall, an enjoyable beer. Unfortunately, I probably won’t find it here in Bend very often, unless one of the upscale grocers carries it.
