Oakshire Overcast Espresso Stout Float

31st Jul 09 (Fri) Leave a comment Go to comments

With the new bottling capabilities of Eugene’s Oakshire Brewery, coupled with Wednesday’s blistering 105° heat in Eugene Oregon, I opted for a tasty treat… a Double Espresso Stout Float.

Three scoops Ciao Bello espresso gelato, about 4-6 ounces of Oakshire Overcast espresso stout, and enjoy! Tasting notes: The espresso gelato was a bit over the top with the already coffee’d up stout.  I’d also recommend trying it with good ol’ vanilla ice cream or even another local Eugene company… Coconut Bliss!!

Also, try a Blue Moon & Orange sherbet float (flippin’ amazing)!!

    I can’t believe nothing like this ever occurred to me! This is definitely paradigm-shifting, my friend. Goodbye, root, hello beer!

      It was a little potent / the bitter of the espresso beer was a bit much against the sweet (and also espresso-ness) of the gelato. Still very good. A vanilla ice cream may have worked better with this beer.

      I bet a Blue Moon over an orange sherbet would be… well… awesome!

    FYI, I did the orange sherbet & blue moon yesterday. Yum! It worked out nicer than the one mentioned above.
