SOUTHERN TIER THICK MINT IMPERIAL STOUT

On tap at Curley’s, excellent Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookie alternative joins brewers’ classic Crème Brulee, Choklat and Mokah dessert treats as rich, inviting chocolate lovers’ favorites. Junior Mint-like freshness retained as dry Belgian dark chocolate malting and cookie dough sweetness gain syrupy layer above dark-roast hop bittering. Beneath the mocha-minted surface lies mild vanilla, coffee, cappuccino and walnut illusions. Decadent.

SOUTHERN TIER TRIPEL CAFE

Syrupy fruit cocktail with serious green coffee bean overtones and just enough chili peppering to not be intrusive. Orange-peeled coriander adjunct stands firm as juicy honey-malted pineapple, peach, honeydew, cantaloupe, mango and nectarine tang gains intensity (alongside persistent sweet banana whim) contrasting mild gin-like juniper bitterness and herbal lemongrass-peppercorn snips. Unroasted coffee bean influence stays just below the frolicking fondue-fruited finish of fascinating tripel/ stout hybrid.
