BIG MUDDY VANILLA COFFEE STOUT

Overly gassed bottled version retained rigid Madagascar vanilla tartness and Blackstrap molasses-derived coffee bean bittering above musty earthen wood tones for uncommon Buffalo Trace bourbon-barreled milk stout. Oaken cherry, dried fig and green grape tannins increased sour edge. Bottle may be a tad oxidized since sprawling flesh-toned head stayed too frothy above burgundy-browned body.

PARADOX MY TI BARREL AGED IMPERIAL RED FRUIT ALE

Busy as its eight-word namesake, lightly barrel-aged medium body embraces Mai Tai cocktail spirit with a salt-licked Margarita kick. Lime-peeled orange tartness sinks into tangy ‘pineapple and cherry pureed’ seduction above creamily caramelized malt toasting. Latent red grape sweetness and delicate sherry, Courvoisier and mull-spiced wine illusions increase complexity.
