HOPPIN’ FROG T.O.R.I.S. THE TYRANT TRIPLE OATMEAL IMPERIAL STOUT

On tap at Ambulance, richly luxurious jet black full body drapes syrupy anise sweetness atop fudged dark chocolate. Pleasant vanilla, cocoa, espresso and blackcurrant illusions pick up warming bourbon-port alcohol burn (lusty 13.8% ABV). Tarry hop char contrasts creamy oats-sugared mocha malting as well as crisp tobacco roast and latent blueberry-plum-raisin-cherry snips. Marvelous chocolate dessert beer.

PRAIRIE ARTISAN CHRISTMAS BOMB

On tap at Growler & Gill, variegated Christmas spices permeate rich and creamy (13% ABV) Imperial Stout. Wintry cinnamon-sugared nutmeg and ginger spicing decorates cacao-nibbed coffee adjuncts. Creamy vanilla icing covers fudgy Black Forest cake center. After a few sips, delightful chocolate mint cookie sweetness seeps into mild ancho chili peppering for Mexican chocolate-spiced entourage. Mesmerizingly complex.
