Hello breakfast! Semi-sweet chocolate and Kona coffee with a little smoked bacon for fullness. A mocha latte with a kick!

Wow – spice, molasses, orange, chocolate & a little farmhouse funk make this very easy drinking ale a treat. Brown ales can too often be cloying in their maltiness, but this one hits the mark!

This has it all: the good, the better and the linguine! Bursting with flavor like a Winchester shell exploding in your mouth. Dry with notes of chocolate, licorice & cappuccino which adds a sense of sweetness. Outstanding!

Espresso color with a nice “Crema” head. Licorice, cocoa, bitter chocolate and toasted cookies make up only a few of the cacophony of flavors. This honors a jazz legend & his benchmark album.
