Tasted: Dogfishhead and Brooklyn Black
I truly love beer. Alright, I love wine, too … and spirits. Let me just explain. Of course, they’re all good, but everything in its place, right? Sometimes a great beer just hits the spot. Today, I’ve chosen a couple of very tasty examples of craft beer. Try them yourself. They’re complex enough to keep you sipping more, but delicious and refreshing on a hot day.
Dogfishhead 60 Minute IPA
Continuously hopped — more than 60 hop additions over a 60-minute boil — this is a deliciously hoppy India Pale Ale that is powerful but balanced with a lot of citrusy hop character. Lots of character, but not overwhelmingly bitter from the hops, this will appeal to both the beer enthusiasts as well as those used to more conventional brews.
Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout
Pitch-black colour with chocolate malt aromas and hints of coffee. On the palate, starts off with a little sweetness then hints of chocolate malt followed with a slight very pleasant bitterness, finishing with more hints of sweetness. Very pleasant, smooth, and drinkable with great balance between sweet and bitter.
