“Exceptionally dark, bold and complex” Imperial Stout brings molasses-smoked maple syruping to fudgy brown chocolate roast, saucy burnt caramel malting, mild espresso coffee nip and wispy ashen hop bittering. Chocolate-covered black cherry sweetness gains casual sherry influence at smoke-glazed mocha finish.
On tap at Arooga’s, rousing orange-peeled lemon seed bittering and brisk yellow grapefruit tang provide hard-candied sweet ‘n sour profile. Tertiary tangerine, clementine and pineapple illusions allow fruitiness to expand above moderate pale malt base. Aggressive Citra hop briskness anchors 8% ABV DIPA, deepening its juicy citrus frontage and resinous pine hind.
On tap at Ballou’s, brusque hop-fruited medium-to-full body leaves crisply embittered impression on tongue. Bountiful grapefruit-peeled orange rind bittering picks up brisk juniper bite to sharpen its wood-parched citric finish. Peach, apple and pear undertones sweeten almond-sugared crystal malting.
