On tap at Growler & Gill, demure nitogenated Irish stout brings mildly creamed dark-roast chocolate and nutty coffee tones to the fore in soft-tongued manner. Black cherry smidge seamlessly enjoins dark mocha template alongside ancillary espresso, dark cocoa and tarry Blackstrap molasses illusions.
On tap at Liberty Craft House, suspect doppel-hefe combo never truly connects both German styles. But its hefe-like banana breading and clove-cinnamon-nutmeg spicing and bock-like toffee-cocoa-pecan conflux offer pleasantries for sweet-toothed brewhounds.
Well-rounded winter seasonal (circa 2016) places sharp-hopped cinnamon, nutmeg and curry spicing alongside brown-sugared gingerbread sweetness to contrast less prominent pumpkin-skinned gourd earthiness. Tertiary walnut-pecan conflux and latent fig snip add depth to refreshingly clean-watered Christmastime treasure.
