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.

BURIAL BOLO COCONUT BROWN

On tap at Ambulance, veritable “granola-like” medium body features toasted coconut adjunct and mocha-spiced nuttiness above brown-sugared barley oats.¬†Vanilla-sweetened cinnamon and cumin seasoning as well as latent almond-walnut-cola conflux tease dark-roast chocolate and coffee overtones as well as fading coconut sweetness and candied toffee reminder. In the bottle, subdued toasted coconut entry overcome by creamy black chocolate roast as mild hop-charred nuttiness contrasts ancillary vanilla, oatmeal cookie and cocoa sweetness.
