On tap at Andy’s Corner Bar, clear amber yellowed pale ale base underscores mild powder-sugared Irish Coffee cream liqueur sweetness contrasting spritzy lemon hop astringency. Pastry dough sweetness dots whipped cream Irish Coffee spell as tertiary Graham Cracker, marshmallow and nutmeg illusions flutter.
Fine ‘chocolate mocha latte’ ale brings milk-sugared white chocolate goodness and coffee-creamed vanilla bean residue to mildly lingered hop char.

On tap at Shepherd & Knucklehead – Haledon, sumptuous caramel macchiato-aligned porter picks up richly creamed mocha molasses sweetness and slight cedar-charred hop roast.

On tap at Beef Trust, brisk lemongrass-infused India Pale Ale glistens with lemony orange zest, floral-spiced herbage and grassy wood-toned Amarillo-Simcoe-hops. Ginger-like lemongrass adjunct retains bright citrus zing above delicate white wheat base. In the bottle, mild lemongrass adjunct never intrudes upon sweet orange-peeled pineapple tang, zesty lemon riffs and recessive herbal notions to its doughy spine.
Perfectly re-creating sticky peanut buttery chocolate candy bar, rich mocha porter gains fudgy sweetness above dark-roasted nuttiness and tidy coffee-vanilla conflux. Mild purple grape, sugar plum and prune illusions flutter. Serve to nutty chocolate lovers.
