NoDa Brewing Coconut + Chocolate Ale, 4.9% is another Girl Scout cookie inspired beer, a blonde al that is brewed with Coco nibs, Epiphany malt, and conditioned on Coconut right here in Charlotte. Coconut + Chocolate Ale pours a light orange color with a two-finger creamy white slow sticky head that gives off a sweet coconut and chocolate aroma with a taste that isn’t much different to its own aroma with a big coconut sweetness at first quickly accompanied by a nice chocolate flavor with a sweet biscuit cookie note on the back of the tongue that finishes nice and sweet with a nice cookie flavor and continues over to the aftertaste with a lingering sweet coconut with a medium mouthfeel. NoDa Brewing Coconut + Chocolate Ale is good but towards the end of a pint the sweetness is becoming a little much but still good, and overall it does taste like a Girl Scout cookie, I give NoDa Brewing Coconut + Chocolate Ale a high B+. I don’t think two pints are feasible maybe and yes you should try it. I wouldn’t turn it down if I came across it again but just one. Please stay safe at home and please enjoy responsibly! Cheers!
I found NoDa Brewing Company Peanut Butter + Chocolate Brown Ale, 5.4% ABV in a mixed four-pack at Reid’s Fine Foods, a local specialty food market. This Peanut Butter + Chocolate Brown Ale is part of a Girl Scout cookie inspired mixed pack, and this particular beer is brewed with Cocoa Nibs, Epiphany malt, and condited on peanuts. Peanut Butter + Chocolate Brown Ale pours a dark brown color with a four-finger beige head that gives you wafting of big peanuts/peanut butter aromas with earthy chocolate sweet notes. You take a sip and a flavor of peanut butter hits your tongue with nice sweetness on the middle of your tongue with an earthy chocolate note towards the back then it comes to a nice peanut butter finish with a similar aftertaste but with a faint chocolate dry note with a medium to barely full mouthfeel. NoDa Brewing Company Peanut Butter + Chocolate Brown Ale is not back, good in fact, and does taste like a peanut butter chocolate cookie. I give it an B+. It has a great peanut buttery flavor with just the right amount of chocolate for a good overall flavor. NoDa Brewing Company Peanut Butter + Chocolate Brown Ale is one that I recommend trying. Please stay safe at home and please enjoy responsibly! Cheers!

I’ve had Sugar Creek Brewing Mocha Java Porter, 5.7% ABV and 16 IBU several times before. Sugar Creek uses locally sourced one-hundred-percent organic fair-trade coffee. Mocha Java Porter pours a nice black color with khaki beige two and a quarter head that slowly fades giving off sweet roasted coffee notes with a nice bit of a nutty mocha note. Taste on this Porter is sweet at first with a nice heaping coffee flavor that has a bit of nuttiness with a mocha chocolate bitterness on the back of the tongue that has a dark chocolate coffee finish with a lingering dark chocolate coffee aftertaste with a full mouthfeel. ￼￼Sugar Creek Brewing Mocha Java Porter is good and isn’t such a big beer that it isn’t drinkable this is for a Porter, and it gets an A+ here. Sugar Creek Brewing Mocha Java Porter is a beer that is worth trying this winter. Please enjoy responsibly m! Cheers!
This is not your typical Brown Ale, Burial Beer Co. Cocoa Bolo Coconut Brown Ale with Chocolate, 5.6% ABV from Asheville, North Carolina and purchased from Pop The Top, is a bigger Brown that is not at the same time. Cocoa Bolo which I don’t think is chocolate western neck attire, but it does, however, pour a black inky color with brown edges and a three-finger creamy beige head with a Mounds bar like aroma with nice toasted coconut and chocolate aromas with roasted malt notes. Yes Cocoa Bolo does taste like a Mounds bar and it doesn’t just smell like one, there is nice sweet chocolaty toasted coconut with nice roasted malts that all finish smooth and velvety with a nice faint toasted chocolate aftertaste with a tiny amount of the coconut all with a smooth medium mouthfeel. This is surprising, not heavy of a beer I mean it does have a lot going on in it but it is somewhat easy to drink for a brown all, but not the easiest. Burial Beer Co. Cocoa Bolo Coconut Brown Ale with Chocolate is an A, the chocolate and the coconut cohabitate well together for a fine sweet brown all that is worth checking out! Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
