Abuelita's Special **(4.13) **
**Bourbon Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout with cacao nibs, cocoa powder, Madagascar vanilla beans, and cinnamon | 10.5% ABV
Abuelita’s Special was inspired by a very special donut made by our friends at Trejo’s Donuts in Los Angeles. Abuelita’s is a raised donut with dark chocolate and dark chocolate crumble. As soon as we tasted this delightful pastry, we knew it was a winner and set our minds toward recreating it in drinkable form, barrel-aged style.

**Creme The La Creme **(4.14)
Bourbon barrel-Aged Blonde Stout with dulce de leche, salt, and Madagascar vanilla beans | 11.1% ABV
Crème de la Crème was inspired by a donut that was inspired by the classic dessert Crème Brûlée. Our friends at The Donuttery are absolute wizards when it comes to taste, so we did our best to follow suit. As fellow flavor fiends, we decided to create a brand new bourbon barrel-aged blonde stout to recreate the toffee, burnt sugar, and vanilla notes present in the donut. We hope you enjoy!

**Cherry Blawsome **(4.25)
Bourbon Barrel-Aged Blonde Stout with cherries, almonds, graham cracker, milk sugar, and Madagascar vanilla beans | 11.2% ABV
Cherry Blawesome was inspired by a favorite donut of ours, released annually in D.C., to coincide with the Cherry Blossom season. The donut uses sour cherries, creamy frosting, almonds, and pie crust crumble. We did our darnedest to recreate this donut experience in bourbon barrel-aged liquid form with our friends at District Doughnut.

Caramel on Parade (4.07)
Bourbon Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout with vegan caramel, cacao nibs, Madagascar vanilla beans, and pecans | 10.3% ABV
Caramel on Parade was inspired by a vegan donut from our buds at Donut Friend in the Highland Park neighborhood of Los Angeles. This donut features a moist chocolate cake topped with caramel sauce, toasted pecans, and chocolate glaze— and it blew our minds. We couldn’t wait to get to work on turning this tasty treat into a barrel-aged drinkable donut.
