Nutella inspired Terrapin Moo-Tella is slated for brewery’s Reserve Series

Terrapin Moo-Tella

Terrapin Moo-Tella will join the brewery’s Reserve Series in the near future.

This specialty lineup started in 2013 with a white chocolate edition of Moo-Hoo, Terrapin’s chocolate milk stout. After a heated round of fan voting, White Chocolate Moo-Hoo snagged a return to the series again this month.

Since White Chocolate, the series has grown to include dessert inspired releases like French Toasted Wake-n-Bake, and Tiramisu-Hoo.

Soon, look for Terrapin Moo-Tella. The Nutella inspired beer uses their Moo-Hoo Milk Stout, brewed with Nashville based Olive & Sinclair cocoa nibs, and a touch of hazelnut syrup. Brewery co-founder “Spike” Buchowski chose the syrup route because of potential nut allergy issues.

Our 2017 Reserve Series release ‘Moo-Tella,” is a Chocolate Imperial Milk Stout so decadent you could eat it with a spoon. The intermingling of Olive and Sinclair chocolate and the rich flavor of hazelnuts creates an experience so pleasurable it should be shared with friends.

Terrapin Moo-Tella is slated for 16.9-ounce bottles, tentatively scheduled for release in November.

Style: Milk Stout (w/ Hazelnut. Cocoa Nibs. Lactose.)
Availability: 16.9oz Bottles, Draft.
Debut: November 2017

The Veil Brewing French Vanilla Hornswoggler debuts this week

The Veil Brewing French Vanilla Hornswoggler

There’s a new dessert beer in Richmond, Virginia this week. The Veil Brewing French Vanilla Hornswoggler joins the lineup of the brewery’s most decadent.

This journey starts with Hornswoggler, the brewery’s chocolate milk stout. This variant is conditioned on a house blend of coffee, plus vanilla beans and a touch of hazelnut. The brewery explains this beer is a blend of each of the flavors, without one dominating.

The goal for French Vanilla Horns was to be a harmonious blend of all of the adjuncts. It was not the intent for it to be a coffee, Vanilla, or hazelnut bomb. It turned out awesome! Super aromatic. Very complex flavor profile.

The “Hornswoggler” series has featured a Coconut, Oreos, and Peanut Butter Oreos edition.

The Veil Brewing French Vanilla Hornswoggler debuts on May 23rd in limited 16 ounce cans and draft.

Style: Milk Stout (w/ Cocoa Nibs. Coffee. Vanilla Beans. Hazelnut. Lactose.)
Availability: 16oz Cans, Draft.
Debut: 5/23/17

Candy bar in a bottle: Rogue Hazelutely Choctabulous

Rogue Hazeluteley Choctabulous

Thank the local Oregonian fans for this beer. Rogue Hazelutely Choctabulous is headed your way in the near future.

If you’ve never tried blending your own beers at home, or wherever you’re drinking, it can be fun. Or a disaster. Fans drinking at Rogue Brewing basically designed this blend of their own, the brewery took notice. Taking Chocolate Stout and blending it with Hazelnut Brown Nectar, the resulting blended beer is abit like a candy bar. Or a lot.

How did it come out? Dessert beer. A freaking delicious bottle of beer candy. Hazelnut Brown Nectar and Chocolate Stout are great beers on their own, but in this bottle, the result is truly greater than the sum of their parts. The flavors blend perfectly into a real treat of a beer that’s not too sweet, or too heavy. We ‘Hazelutely’ believe there is no reason to share this beer.

For years, our hardest core local fans have been drinking a blend of Chocolate Stout and Hazelnut Brown Nectar, they say it takes like a chocolate candy bar. we have taken these two absolutely fabulous beers and fused them together to create Rogue Hazelutley Choctabulous, dark and decadent with a rich nutty flavor up front followed by a chocolate truffle finish. We’re thrilled to share our little secret with the world.

Rogue Hazelutely Choctabulous is available for the first time in 22 ounce bottle release, hitting shelves nationally.

Style: Stout (w/ Hazelnut, Chocolate.)
Availability: 22oz Bottles, Draft.
Debut: January, 2017.

5.7% ABV

Dessert beer: Westbrook 6th Anniversary Hazelnut Chocolate Imperial Stout

Westbrook Hazelnut Chocolate Imperial Stout

Westbrook 6th Anniversary Hazelnut Chocolate Imperial Stout is on the way. Another for the dessert beer category.

This release is pretty straight forward. The Mount Pleasant, South Carolina based brewery created an imperial stout brewed with hazelnuts, cocoa nibs, vanilla beans, and candi sugar. (We are assuming the candi sugar is just to boost the alcohol by volume.) Your dessert beer is served.

Birthdays beer is how famed Mexican Cake got its start. Brewed to celebrate a big milestone, only to become an annual release. (Now with barrel-aged variants.) Last year’s edition, 5th Anniversary Chocolate Raspberry Imperial Stout is a 10.5% alcohol by volume imperial stout featured raspberries, vanilla beans and cocoa nibs.

Our 6th Anniversary beer is a rich and chocolatey imperial stout matured on cocoa nibs, roasted hazelnuts and vanilla beans.

Westbrook 6th Anniversary Hazelnut Chocolate Imperial Stout will be a 22 ounce bottle release.

Style: Imperial Stout (w/ Vanilla Beans, Hazelnuts, Cocoa Nibs, Candi Syrup.)
Availability: 22oz Bottles
Debut: TBA

Dessert: Cigar City Vanilla Hazelnut Marshal Zhukov’s debuts this week

Cigar City Vanilla Hazelnut Marsha Zhukov bottle

Cigar City Vanilla Hazelnut Marshal Zhukov debuts on November 23rd. Even this guy loves desserts.

If the Tampa, Florida based brewery is known for just two beers, they would be Hunaphu and Marshal Zhukov’s Imperial Stout. Both are imperial stouts. Both very different.

Zhukov is the Russian imperial stout. A big, chewy imperial stout that pours like 40 weight motor oil. Tastes like espresso and molasses. Tomorrow, the Marshal is being treated to dessert with the release of Cigar City Vanilla Hazelnut Marshal Zhukov’s Imperial Stout.

That big imperial stout has been spiked with hazelnut and vanilla beans, resulting in a dessert beer fitting for the coldest Russian winter. Or Florida.

22-ounce bottles of Cigar City Vanilla Hazelnut Marshal Zhukov’s will be available at the brewery’s Fermentorium, starting at 9 am. $20 each.

Style: Imperial Stout (w/ Hazelnuts, Vanilla Beans.)
Availablity: 22oz Bottles. Limited.
Debut: 11/23/16

11.5% ABV

Monday Night Georgian Imperial Stout joins Black Tie Series

Monday Night Georgian Imperial Stout

Monday Night Georgian Imperial Stout starts shipping this week. A new addition to the brewery’s Black Tie Series.

Despite the brewery being based in Atlanta, Georgia, the ‘Georgian’ part of this beer name is actually referring to the country of Georgia. Monday Night Georgian Imperial Stout is brewed with 300 pounds of hazelnuts imported from the Eurasian country.

Incidentally, this is the first imperial stout released by Monday Night. The boozy newbie is brewed with a copius amount of flaked oats, which gives the stout a smooth, creamy mouthfeel. The hazelnut flavor isn’t overwhelming, but a nice, subtle compliment to this Russian imperial stout.

Monday Night Georgian Imperial Stout is available now in 22 ounce bottles and draft for a limited time.

Style: Imperial Stout (w/ Hazelnuts)
Availability: 22oz Bottles, Draft
Release: Early-February, 2016

11% ABV
