KCBC ‘Queens of Shadows’, 9,7% ABV. Brooklyn, NY – Imperial Coffee Stout featuring a beautiful honey-processed coffee from the award-winning Las Flores farm in Honduras, roasted by their friends & neighbors at Spectrum Coffee and then blended with their big ol’ stout. Blasts of coffee, toasty rye and oats, subtle dark fruit and bitter chocolate.
Greenpoint Beer and Ale ‘Something in the Sky‘, 8,9% ABV. Brooklyn, NY – Belgian Tripel with Brett. A mostly classic interpretation of a light, strong Belgian Trappist ale. Brewed with Pilsner malt and sugar to boost alcohol and keep a lean body. Hopped with Czech Saaz. Fermented with their house brett saison blend, which pushes a pleasant overripe pineapple aroma alongside typical Belgian esters.
Hudson Valley ‘Soulcaster’, 5% ABV. Beacon, NY – a little sour IPA with Azacca and Citra hops. Bright citrus on the nose with a touch of sweetness and pineapple. Medium bodied with some light acidity. Gentle with a slight hint of milk sugar, tons of pineapple and tangy acidity in the finish.
Thisted Bryghus ‘Limfsjordporter’,7,9% ABV. Thisted, Denmark – One of the best beers to come out of Denmark. A Baltic Porter brewed with licorice. The recipe contains an unusual though intriguing blend of smoked malt and English licorice resulting in an elegant balance on a slightly higher level than usually seen, making it the brewmaster’s personal favorite and the brewery’s “heart baby”.
