When I go out to have a drink, I find that I’m drawn to the stouts that the bar has available. I like reading the names, reading what the taste of the beer is like, and the way the brewery has worked to make their stout stand out. I have noticed more and more the addition of subtle fruit flavors to stouts, and while I can’t say I am always a fan, I will always try (because beer).

Both of these beers are from a brewery that I think has some seriously solid game. I can’t pronounce the name of the brewery correctly, yet, but it is one of my life goals. These beers made me feel like I was indulging my sweet tooth.

Tell us about it

Both of these beers were pretty tasty. Strawberry was always the flavor that stood out most to me when I have had Neoplitan ice cream, so I was disappointed that though the aroma of strawberries was apparent, it was hard to find it when drinking the beer. That’s my bias, though. It *was* like having ice cream, and that was enjoyable. The Blueberry Maple finished better and left a nice taste in my mouth. I’m going to have to go find some strawberry ice cream now!
