PRAIRIE / EVIL TWIN BIBLE BELT IMPERIAL STOUT

Richly creamed collaboration aged on coffee, vanilla, chili and cacao nibs combines the fudgy dark chocolate malting, molasses-smoked muscovado sugaring and wood-burnt hop char of Evil Twin’s Even More Jesus with rummy bourbon-spiced alacrity for decadent dessert treat. Mild chili heat slightly sears robust vanilla-mocha stead, leaving chocolate mousse, Black Forest cake, chocolate eclair, fudged brownie and hazelnut cappuccino illusions on the busy finish (as well as not-too-subtle anise, cinnamon and marshmallow snips).

DOGFISH HEAD SIRACUSA NERA IMPERIAL STOUT

On tap at Sogo, mildly creamed dark-roast coffee and lightly smoked chocolate malting pick up ancillary port-aged ‘plum, cherry and stewed fruit’ notions from Syrah grape must of hybridized wine-barreled stout that stays remarkably soft and fluffy on the tongue. Wood-burnt hop char and light walnut sear impact smoky coffee-cocoa finish, leaving oaken vanilla tannins in the distance.

SOUTHERN TIER NITRO S’MORES IMPERIAL MILK STOUT

On tap at Growler & Gill, Irish Car Bomb-like nitro stout retains soothingly creamed dark chocolate syruping, honeyed Graham Cracker sugaring and sweet vanilla serenity (somehow recalling above-mentioned cocktail that combines Jameson Whiskey, Bailey’s Irish Cream and Guinness Stout). Black Forest cake, fudged brownie, crème brulee and cocoa milk illusions add further richness to extraordinary dessert treat.

BOLERO SNORT EL MOOCHADOR MEXICAN IMPERIAL STOUT

Richly creamed Mexican-styled full body remains boldly well-balanced yet lusciously soft-tongued. Exuberant mocha-spiced sweetness increases brown-sugared cinnamon adjunct to contrast mild ancho-pablano peppering above molasses-glazed flaked oats malting. Minty chocolate luxuriance gains lovely milk-sugared coffee, bourbon vanilla, cocoa nibs, crème brulee, café au lait and hazelnut undertones. Recommended.
