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. In the can, sweet coconut-chocolate enclave receives dryer Black Patent malt bittering, coffee-dried nut char and cocoa powdered chalking.

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.
