for your gustatorial enjoyment, including:
21st Amendment Back in Black IPA (San Francisco, CA; $6/16 oz). This black IPA smells of dark chocolate with a dose of piney hops. There’s plenty of malts for an IPA with a nicely balanced hop finish. 6.8% ABV.
Tröegs Javahead Stout (Harrisburg, PA; $6/16 oz). This seasonal beer contains a blend of locally roasted espresso and Kenyan coffee beans. The recipe is based on Tröeg’s original oatmeal stout recipe, with the wort being passed through a hop back vessel filled with the coffee grounds. The result is a lush oatmeal mouthfeel balanced with cocoa and subtle coffee flavors. 7.5% ABV.
Weyerbacher Heresy (Easton, PA; $6/16 oz). Weyerbacher makes Heresy by aging their Old Heathen Imperial Stout in bourbon barrels. The result is an extraordinary dark stout with aromas of vanilla, cocoa, and coffee. 8.0% ABV.
