Sacred Spice is an Imperial Porter invigorated with traditional masala chai spices skillfully blended by Boulder-based Sanctuary Chai. The enchanting ale carries the delightful scent and flavor of dark, roasted barley as well as the provocative aroma of ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom and other spices used for centuries to embolden Eastern teas. However, much like the brewery’s heralded Big Shot Espresso Stout, Sacred Spice strikes a fine balance whereby the flavors exhibit a seemingly natural harmony so that no taste bud is dominated but rather each one satisfied. The bold, black ale is 10.1% ABV with 33 IBU.
‘Life Is Beautful’
Sacred Spice’s label is an art piece by Millicent Kang dubbed ‘Life Is Beautiful.’ The release party will double as an art show for Kang, whose works will adorn the Twisted Pine ale house for the entire month of March. Kang will be at the launch party, signing bottles and chatting about her artwork.
