As one of Thrillist’s Best Breweries in America, Common Roots is on every craft hunter’s list of must-taste New York breweries. Up in the sleepy mountain town of South Glens Falls, the brewery guards treasures that rarely escape the taproom. The rest of the nation lacks, while the locals enjoy a stockpile of cellarable gems like today’s Snowy Night American Double Stout.
This Dark Beer treat oozes with flavors of fudgy chocolate cake, making it the Dessert Stout pièce de résistance of any collection. Especially because there’s only a limited-quantity of Snowy Night available — and it’s only in New York!
The chances of finding it after today are like finding a sugar cube in a snowstorm, so now is your opportunity to have your cake, and eat it too!
Brewed with vanilla beans and lactose, Snowy Night boasts rich flavors of molasses imbued with melty chocolate and soothing vanilla ice cream. With a deep malt body, it flows over the palate like creamy, chocolatey fudge with a lingering booziness on the finish. Just a hint of smoke accompanies the creamy sweetness, making it a great pairing for a charcuterie board of artisanal meats and cheeses.
When it comes to a cellar-ready sweet treat, Snowy Night is the chocolate fudge icing on the cake. Best to gather what you can now, this snowy night may be melted away by morning!
