Saucony Creek Schnickelfritz Chocolate Cherry Milk Stout (8% ABV): This milk/sweet stout from Saucony Brewing Company in Kutztown, Pennsylvania pours a deep crimson brown with a sudsy off-white head that slowly settles into a thin head that lasts. Dark chocolate, coffee, caramel, vanilla and a bit of cherry on the nose. Schnickelfritz is silky and creamy with lots of caramel, vanilla and cherry malt. The chocolate comes through a bit more as this beer warms up for an adult treat on a cold night.

 

Fun Fact: “Schnickelfritz” is a Pennsylvania Dutch term that refers to a naughty rebellious child who is always getting into trouble.

Beer of the Week: Saucony Hop Suplex Ale

 Saucony Hop Suplex

Saucony Hop Suplex Ale (10% alcohol): This spring seasonal Imperial IPA from Saucony Brewing Company in Kutztown, Pennsylvania pours a cloudy russet brown with an off-white head that doesn’t last, but leaves decent lacing. The aroma is distinctively floral hops with notes of citrus and sweet melon along with malt undertones. The six hop varieties that Hop Suplex is brewed with lend themselves to the overall flavor; bitter hoppiness cleanses the palate and paves the way for sweet honey citrus finished with malt flavors. The depth and complexity of the flavors are worth trying. Plus, the label is cute 🙂
