High Branch Brewing Company, Concord, NC

I stopped in at High Branch Brewing Company in Concord, North Carolina.  When I reviewed the beer list I had to try the Imposter Golden Stout.  Imposter is a good name for this.  I wonder how many people, blindfolded, would assume this to be a regular stout.  It’s delicious, smooth, with most typical stout characteristics.  Just a bit lighter.  But I had to try the Yucatan Stout.  The vanilla came through first, then the cinnamon.  The pepper lingered with me for a good half hour after I’d left the brewery, leaving this wonderful tang on my palate that I enjoyed and reminisced over this tasty beer.
