BOLERO SNORT TMNB BROWN ALE

On tap at Beef Trust, enchanting moderate-to-medium body (a.k.a. Thirsty Mutant Ninja Bulls) re-creates sea-salted chocolate turtle candy bar as brown chocolate malting sweetens toasted pecan, cocoa nibs and toffee adjuncts above earthen truffle base. Sharp resinous hop bittering lingers lightly below serene nutty mocha surface. Daintily candied almond, chestnut, butternut and hazelnut illusions add luster.

DOGFISH HEAD CAROBOCK

On tap at Cloverleaf, hybridized weizenbock/ brown ale (8% ABV) lets subtle floury carob pod influence get aged on Madagascar vanilla beans above mildly creamed caramel malting. Bittersweet chocolate-vanilla conflux stays moderate as distant Bailey’s Irish Cream Coffee, Irish whiskey, cacao nibs, earthen truffle and plummy raisin illusions dry out at the chalky mocha finish.
