On tap at Taphouse 15, light bourbon wisp sweetens tart raspberry hibiscus adjunct reaching creamy dark chocolate center and mild nut-charred coffee snip over earthy truffle setting. Mild bourbon vanilla sway may be underwhelming but candied raspberry chocolate sugaring truly engages fine dessert treat.
On tap at Tapastre, luxuriously complex pastry stout regales buttery dark rum sugaring for toffee-spiced dark chocolate creaming, cocoa-buttered hazelnut molasses sweetness and toasted coconut reserve. Chocolate hazelnut-candied insistence gains ancillary black cherry-pureed burgundy, raisin and fig illusions to contrast latent walnut-charred hop bittering and recessive oaken vanilla tannins. Richly creamed mocha rum cake finish sustains intensity.
Luxurious mocha-whiskeyed nightcap (with lofty 11% ABV) offers hickory-smoked bourbon warmth to vanilla-beaned black chocolate tenacity and lively sherry-port-burgundy wining. Molasses-sugared toasted coconut, marshmallow and chocolate cake sweetness contrasts espresso-dried charcoal bitterness underscoring boozy cocoa-nibbed bourbon whiskey finish. Heavenly!
On tap at Growler & Gill, murky wet-grained pale malting and musky Mosaic hop fruiting pick up bitter dune-laden blueberry nip that’s too laid-back to outpoint coriander-spiced citrus waver. Up the berries to enhance its lemony orange zest.
