The stylish yet reserved woman sat in the corner of the tasting at Sugar Maple, and I noticed her large notebook..and thought, “Maybe she’ll write about this.” So, I was still pleasantly surprised to see this review by Julie Lawrence posted to onmilwaukee.com. Very kind!
Julie says that the Tyranena Brewing Co. Devil Made Me Do It Imperial Coffee Porter paired with dark chocolate fairy food from Franklin’s Chocolates “is the best thing in the world.”
But what, you might ask, is Fairy Food? It’s an old-fashioned confection made with caramelized molasses-sugar foam that is crunchy. Cut into cubes, the foam looks like shards of sugar honeycomb. Franklin’s Chocolates’ version is dipped in dark chocolate, so there is a surprise element of the textures not matching. With the big coffee-spiked boozy porter from Tyranena Brewing, it turned out to be a sweet surprise.
