It was a night of chocolate pine cones.
  1. 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.
  2. 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!
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
