Caboose Hobo Imperial Stout w/Vanilla Bean

Stout – Imperial / 8% ABV / 24 IBU / 240 CAL / Vienna, VA

One of the first beers ever brewed at Caboose. Made with a blend of roasted, chocolate, black and Munich malts, then aged on real Madagascar bourbon vanilla beans. Toffee and caramel notes give way to the smooth, yet rich flavors of coffee and vanilla. Where did the name come from? The name is a nod to the hobos who used to freight hop from town to town.

This T’Mave is a soft, yet full bodied Czech Black Lager with hints of coffee and dark, roasted malts.

Calvert El Coquito

Stout – American / 8.7% ABV / 261 CAL / Upper Marlboro, MD

El Coquito is a 8.7% blonde stout that pours golden and has a full body to resemble the Puerto Rican holiday drink. From the aroma and the initial taste, El Coquito is bursting with coconut and pairs well with the cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla. The milk sugar helps with the body to leave just the right amount of residual sugar and a mouthfeel of the creamy coconut drink.

A robust rye porter with hints of coffee and chocolate nicely balanced with a subtle hop influence. A substantial, malty ale, complex and flavorful with a medium body and a slightly roasty finish. The rich dark color is deceptively refreshing. The spice in the rye clears the palate. A sip will explain why we say this is a delightful combination of sweet and spicy!

Silver Branch Gnome For the Holidays

Tröegs Independent Double Blizzard

IPA – Imperial / 8.3% ABV / 249 CAL / Hershey, PA

This is Blizzard of Hops … turned up to 11. For Double Blizzard, we used a cooler temperature for the kettle hop additions, softening the character of the Centennial, Chinook and El Dorado.

We taste: huge citrus and pineapple notes, soft pine
