Chef Series: Claudia V. Martinez
Monday Night Brewing, Atlanta
Available for a limited time on draft and in 500 ML bottles
The first offering from Monday Night’s new Chef Series is a barrel-aged and blended strong ale made in collaboration with Miller Union executive pasty chef Claudia V. Martinez. At 13% alcohol, it’s essentially a big, viscous stout, flavored with coconut, chocolate, cardamom, vanilla and sea salt. The chocolate comes through first, with hints of coconut and vanilla, and the cardamom and salt linger into the finish. Overall, I’d say it’s dangerously delicious.
Obviously, Miller Union would be the place to try Chef Series with Claudia V. Martinez’s Venezuelan oatmeal cookies. But other desserts easily could pair with it, too, including blondies, brownies or chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream.
