On today’s episode of A Tasting at The Murder Table, we continue our local brewery beer reviews. This time around, we head on up to Pennsauken, NJ (a mere 11.2 miles away from said Murder Table!) for a tasting of Double Nickel Brewing Company’s Nocturnal Creatures Imperial Dessert Stout.
Here’s what Double Nickel has to say about this high-octane brew that comes in a very pretty can:
Influenced by one our favorite Italian desserts, this 13% ABV tiramisu-inspired dessert stout stimulates your taste buds with notes of brown sugar, coffee, vanilla, and some chocolate to round it all out. We started this batch out with the same long-boiled base as the OG Nocturnal Creatures but pumped up the sweetness with some brown sugar and a dusting of Dutch chocolate towards the end of the boil. We then conditioned this luscious brew on coffee from our homies and local roasters at Harvest Coffee. Hand-split and scraped Madagascan vanilla beans were combined with the coffee during conditioning resulting in a thick imperial dessert stout perfect for sipping.
13%! We’ve said it once and we’ll say it again: YOWZA! To find out what we thought of this flavor and alcohol packed brew, click the play button on the following video:
