On tap at Taphouse Grille – Wayne, raw-honeyed five grain breading gains dry rye influence, subtle sourdough murk and polite toasted hop musk.
On tap at Poor Henry’s, light vanilla creaming battles back lactic yogurt souring and tannic grape tartness. In the midst, rum-buttered banana daiquiri sweetness fades quick as dry plantain acridity sets in alongside tertiary boysenberry-gooseberry pucker. A bit waxy.
On tap at Poor Henry’s, “hoppier Americanized barleywine” celebrates brewers’ one-year anniversary ale in mild style with tingly toned-down affectations. Soft whiskey tone slowly enveloped by moderate caramel-toasted toffee and coconut sweetness to contrast dry oaken vanilla snips. Just a shade thin.
On tap at Plank Pizza, creamy brown chocolate sweetness and rich Madagascar vanilla beaning create mighty fine full-bodied porter. Sugary cookie dough center contrasts mild earthen peat bottom as tertiary black cherry, raspberry and strawberry whims increase serenity of chocolate-vanilla dessert treat.
