On tap at Ambulance, soft-toned Imperial Stout fermented on oak spirals lets chalky cocoa dryness lead the way over umami-like soy sauced piquancy, lightly spiced blackberry-wined burgundy tones and recessive vanilla snips. Sourer lactic milking than similarly styled stouts.
Lovely soft-toned Belgian IPA with sunny amber-yellowed clarity brings easygoing grapefruit-orange peel bittering to herbal hop subtlety, cellared fungi yeast musk and dark floral notions. Salty citrus finish stays brisk.

Effervescent yellow-cleared bantam relies on active saison yeast to awaken its wafting floral-perfumed rose petal sweetness, crabapple-like rose hips tartness and lime-dried lemon hop souring.

On tap at Ambulance, hybridized black-bodied stout brings juicy orange tang and earthen truffle nuttiness to reclining black chocolate fudging.

Muscovado-sugared raspberry puree tartness deepened by syrupy dark chocolate thickness, bringing Mudcake, molasses cake, Black Forest cake and brownie richness to the surface. Subtle dried-fruited blackberry, black cherry, blueberry and huckleberry illusions resonate below hefty raspberry contingent of complex dessert treat.
On tap at Ambulance, adequate Imperial Porter may lack pertinent salted caramel influence but easy flowing dark-roast mocha setting picks up mild dry cocoa, dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla and molasses illusions that linger softly.
