Orange brown color with a thin layer of tan foam. Sweet malty caramel candy and apple aroma. Nice chewy maltiness layered with dark fruits and molasses. Picking up some nice brandy flavors. Finishes with a crisp hoppy bite that sits on the tongue for a while.

Amager Imperial Stout

Black with just a bit of tan head. Malty aroma of raisins and vanilla. Rich chewy palate with notes of tobacco, leather, kola nut and toffee. Strong kick but not overwhelming. Fresh hoppy finish coats under the tongue.

Maui Brewing Sobrehumano Palena’ole Fruit Beer

Sobre

This beer is a joint project between Maui Brewing, Hawaii’s leading microbrewery and Jolly Pumpkin Brewery which is known for their mastery of sour ales. Brewed with Hawaiiian passionfruit and Michigan cherries. Pours a copper light brown with a healthy white head. Aroma of passionfruit juice. This same flavor permeates the taste as well. Sweet, tropical pineapple, and very easy drinking. Not really picking up on the cherry but there is a tart finish

Dark brown-purplish color with thin white head. Aroma of chocolate malt, biscuits, maple syrup and bourbon. Taste is…hello flavor country, we’ve got a whole lot of complexity going on here: Vanilla, raisins, toasted malt, molasses, bourbon. The finish has another layer of oakiness followed by a tart sweetness. Surprisingly light body for a barleywine. More please.
