Went Growler Hunting NebCo had a new release and found a new Hooker! (Go G-Men)!
1) New England Brewing - Ghost Pigeon Porter - Suprise (at least to me) from New England Brewing. Poured into a tulip glass. Appearance - Nice deep dark black, small tan head which quickly dissipates. Taste - Charred coffe, cocoa with some licorice undertones. This finishes with a nice hoppy bitternes (40 IBU's). I like this combination. Nice to have found this tasty treat. Hopefully it goes into the rotation.
2) Thomas Hooker - Chocolate Truffle Stout - 6.3% Appearnce - Totally black tan head.
Taste - Chocolate dominates... this is the reason for this beer. The chocolatier that they utilized is a local CT. one. There is a nice sweetness to this without it being too much of a sugar bomb. Mouthfeel - Creamy, this is chocolate milk for adults. Great beer which is slighly sneaky on the ABV!
3) Samuel Adams - Whitewater IPA - 5.8% - Pretty tasty IPA - Get a little apple and cinnamon with this. Wasn't Whitewater a Clinton Scandal!
