Innis Gunn Original   
Innis & Gunn  ·  United Kingdom
For 30 days this honey-hued beer sleeps in hand selected oak barrels, locked inside a bonded warehouse, gradually assimilating the subtle flavours that reside in the wood. Barrels are then emptied and maturation continues for a further 47 days in a marrying tun where these natural flavours infuse and fall into perfect balance. This 77-day process is unique and produces a delicious, refreshing beer: Aromas of vanilla and toffee, hints of citrus, with a malty, lightly oaked palate.

Bell's Kalamazoo Stout   
Bell's Brewery  ·  Kalamazoo, MI
A blend of dark chocolate and coffee flavors with just a hint of brewer's licorice. One of our oldest recipes, it balances a significant hop presence against the roast malt body.
Food Pairings: A more intense, roasty version of a porter, the roast in Kalamazoo Stout can be a nice counterpoint to rich or sweet foods. It can also create resonance with intense, caramelized meats, rich stews, sweet barbecue or nutty desserts. A gimme with smoked salmon or oysters on the half shell and nice with steamed lobster. Try it with corned beef as well. For dessert, try with chocolate souffle, baklava or mocha mascarpone mousse. Pairs well with cheeses like aged Gouda, Parmesan, cheddar, French brie (for a nice contrast), Holland smoked Gouda, MouCou ColoRouge, Trader Joe’s goat milk brie or Trader Joe’s Huntsman.
