Ex Novo CocoGoNuts Barrel-Aged Stout with Coconut, Vanilla and Sea Salt (unknown release)
Holy Mountain Midnight Still with Turkish Coffee and Cardamom (unknown release)
Described as a stout with banana, strawberry, chocolate and vanilla, and it basically meets all of the above. Sweet and desserty, syrupy but not cloying, it tastes exactly like a fudge banana split. I don't love super sweet beers, but this was surprisingly enjoyable.
Medium roast, coffee-centric. Smooth from the nitro but characterful enough. Again, the barrel character was almost nonexistent. This wasn't going to win any contest against the Splinters, but it was a nice, lighter followup.
