It was a night of chocolate pine cones.
- •Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale (2015, draught)I've loved this beer for so long, I forget to find words to describe it. Tonight, I still am not successful in that arena.
- •Founders Dark Penance, imperial black IPA (2015, draught)Like a chocolate pine cone. Really! It's noticeably fudgier than this style typically is. I like it!
- •Rush River Nevermore, chocolate oatmeal stout (draught)Purports to be a chocolate oatmeal stout, but is pretty hoppy for the style, and might qualify as another chocolate pine cone. Good!, but weird.
- •Rush River Scenic, American pale ale (draught)If grapefruit were a stone fruit, it would taste like this. A stone fruit in the grass. With just a slight hint of bubblegum, interestingly enough. Interesting.
