Beginning this Friday, October 8th, and running thru Sunday, October 10th the Braxton Barrel House will be tapping all three 2019 Dark Charge Cake Box variants! Each of the variants will be paired with a special taco for a limited time! Read below for the pairings and we hope to see you this weekend!
2019 Dark Charge Bananas Foster paired with a Fried Plantain taco, pineapple pico, pickled jalapenos, goat cheese, and honey-chipotle sauce!
Dark Charge Bananas Foster is racked out of barrels and on top of more than 2 pounds per gallon of freshly pureed bananas and then refermented. Once that process has been completed, this banana forward barrel-aged imperial stout is aged on Grade A Madagascar vanilla beans and cinnamon to tie together this timeless classic.
Harmonious notes of cinnamon, vanilla, bananas, from the heavy-handed adjunct additions, pair perfectly with the caramel, vanilla, and roasty notes Dark Charge is known for.
2019 Dark Charge German Chocolate Cake paired with a Coconut Curry Pork taco with onions, cilantro, pesto, curry creme, and topped with roasted cashews!
Dark Charge German Chocolate Cake is a big, bold barrel-aged stout aged on cocoa nibs, coconut, and vanilla beans to bring forward the delectable flavors and harmony of a traditional German Chocolate Cake.
The beer is finished with a top note of almond extract to bring forward the slight nuttiness that this German dessert is known for. The roast and stone fruit flavors that Dark Charge is known for meld with this timeless classic to recreate a liquid version of a historic dessert.
2019 Dark Charge White Chocolate Raspberry Cake paired with a Brownie Birria taco with white chocolate drizzle and fresh raspberries and a side of melted ice cream dip
The barrel-aged beauty was designed after the most beloved bundt cake – the white chocolate raspberry bundt. Taking more than 1.5 pounds per gallon of Fresh Oregon Raspberries and refermenting with Barrel Aged Dark Charge bringing forward notes of freshly cut raspberry and notes of jam.
These flavors and aromas complement the roast and stone fruit flavors of Dark Charge. Once fermentation is complete, this stout with purple hues is conditioned on more than 12 pounds of freshly cut Grade A Madagascar Vanilla beans and cocoa nibs tying together a medley of your favorite Bundt cake.
You can enjoy all three tacos paired with three 5oz pours of Dark Charge for $27 or enjoy individual pairings for $10 each!
