SINGLECUT FREE FORM JAZZ ODYSSEY

On tap at Growler & Gill, heavy coconut-chocolate infusion and milk-sugared vanilla sweetness embellish off-beat hybridized schwarzbier. Usually a tediously nebulous black lager style never as worthily profound as a permier porter-stout, Singlecut’s heightened schwarz proves to be one step ahead of the dull pack in terms of distinct flavor profiling. Its coconut-chocolate-vanilla aspirations invite lovely gingerbread, sarsaparilla, cinnamon and toffee illusions to join the malt-roasted party. “A unique spin” on a German black beer.

RAMSTEIN INK BLACK LAGER

‘Elegant’ jet-black dark lager places mildly creamed dark-roast mocha and carafa malts atop molasses-breaded grain toasting and laid-back hop char. Bittersweet dark chocolate, coffee, cocoa and cola nut illusions swirl across the midst. Unlike lesser Bavarian schwarzbiers, there is no nastily plastique black malt astringency to attack its fine mocha setting. Serve to lighter porter-stout thirsts.

WILD WOLF STRAWBERRY SCHWARZCAKE

Mild, yet complex, hybridized schwarzbier brings modestly lingering strawberry affectations to smooth black chocolate creaming, dried cocoa supplement and honeyed wheat spine. Fresh wild strawberries sweeten tertiary raspberry-blackberry-blueberry-boysenberry tartness. At mocha-sugared strawberry finish, Devil’s food cake, strawberry shortcake and fudgy strawberry brownie illusions come alive.
