A Note on This Beer
My jogging buddy is giving up dessert for 30 days. When he asked if I wanted to join, I said, “Sure… as long as I can have beer!”
He laughed and replied, “Of course! Beer isn’t dessert.”
Dude, I love ya, but I’d beg to differ. Especially after trying today’s decadent pairing from Braxton Brewing!
For their Salted Caramel Chocolate Truffle Imperial Stout, the brewers stuffed it with loads of real chocolate, gobs of caramel, and heaps of roasted malt flavors.
A touch of hops, a swirl of lactose, and a pinch of sea salt in the boil provides a balanced bitterness against this delicacy's truffle-inspired sweetness. Added doses of cacao nibs and caramel in the fermentor take the already true-to-the-treat flavors up a notch.
And, just wait til you try their Raspberry Pie! To start, the brewers pack each batch of this Berliner Weisse with drippy raspberry purée. Then, they use their classic kettle-sour process to entice a subtle tartness that pairs perfectly with the pie crust-like sweetness, velvety vanilla, spicy cinnamon, and lactose swimming in this sumptuous brew.
So, when my buddy asks if I’m sticking to the plan, I can confidently say “yes.” Dessert is in the eye of the beholder, after all, and I won’t tell if you won’t. Wink wink.
