Sharp tropical fruiting raises sour passionfruit, orange and guava juicing slightly above piney citrus IPA template and blaring aspirin-like astringency. Lemony gooseberry tartness increases zesty Hawaiian tropicalia while grapefruit pith and melon rind souring gains ancillary mandarin orange, pineapple, papaya and tangerine tanginess. A somewhat bold stylistic changeup.
Luxurious fresh-brewed coffee entry superseded by tart raspberry pureeing for rich (9.4% ABV) Wake-N-Bake variation. Dark chocolate insistence and liquid cacao adjunct catch up to hop-charred coffee bittering midway, coalescing with bittersweet raspberry truffle scheme at fulsome Black Forest cake finish.
On tap at Plank Pizza, mighty dark-roast Jittery Joe’s coffee bittering and cocoa-dried black chocolate residue pick up tart Montmorency cherry juicing atop hop-charred molasses oats base.
Dry Baltic porter issues beechwood-smoked black chocolate malting and French oak licks to ashen nutty bittering. Oncoming vanilla-creamed dark fruiting ransacks chicory-seared cedar char and light Band-Aid astringency. Drifting cocoa nibs influence adds to nutty chocolate nature.
On tap at Amazing Grapes, tart cranberry-forward sourness almost supersedes vegetal gourd earthiness and mild pumpkin-skinned acridity. Lemony blood orange, yellow grapefruit and tangelo fruiting tingles the sour cranberry essence.
On tap at Shepherd & Knucklehead, sensational Imperial Milk Stout layers whipped creamed Mascapone custard atop rum-soaked ladyfinger impression and fudgy brown chocolate malting (while nearly bettering Terrapin’s ambitious Moo-Hoo dessert treat). Subsidiary creme brulee, maple molasses, chocolate cake, toasted coconut, cherry cordial, vanilla wafer and wheat-honeyed sweetness receives powdered sugaring. For contrast, rich coffee bean bittering gains prominence alongside milky Yoo-Hoo chocolate syruping. Serve to all sweet-toothed fanatics.
