After Dinner Treat

After the grilled lamb
Schlafly Reserve for dessert
Is that macaroon?

Written by Captain Hops.

References: I found a bottle of Schlafly Reserve Oak Aged Imperial Stout and decided to open it last night after eating a particularly good grilled lamb steak. It was the perfect dessert! There were cocoa, vanilla, and toasted coconut flavors going on in there that I couldn’t believe. It tasted a little like chocolate macaroons. There was a lot going on but it was perfectly balanced. What a treat!
