Year of New Beer: Blueberry Chocolate Chip Maple Bourbon Pancakes: Baba Yaga (2021), Ethereal (Lex)

Written By: Dion on 02/10/2021

Awesome nose delivers on the name in spades. Big blueberry note up front. But just when you think it's going to overpower everything, chocolate steps up alongside a subtle maple and sneaky pancake. Unreal. Masterfully balanced on the tongue as well. Aroma translates beautifully, and it's here that the bourbon kicks in, adding nice notes of caramel and oak. Blueberry is authentic, and it marries very well with the chocolate. A lot going on here, but it all works surprisingly well.
