of the fruit! Keg Creek'sBlack Cherry Stout,
left, starts off dark and bitter like pure cacao, but brightens
with subtle cherry after further quaffs. 5.2% ABV, zero IBUs.
"Woooooo!" I exclaimed upon whiffing Parkside
Brewing'sBelly Dancer, right, a 7.0% ABV
chai stout. Loads of spice! It is what it says it is.
ciders! Oaked sour cherry from Jefferson County Ciderworks, left, is
refreshing with bright cherry flavor, and hints of vinegar on
the nose and sugar on the palate. An optimal drink for warmer
months. 6.7% ABV. Jacked Cider House's (Crimson
Sunset Vineyards and Winery) cider with strawberries,
right, starts off on the sweet side, with a taste not unlike
strawberries in sugar. Finishes with an equal mix of sour and
sweet. 6.8% ABV.
