Uhhhhh...When did they start hiring drunk college kids to come up with ideas.
Black garlic, a version of the vegetable made by heating whole bulbs over the course of several weeks until they turn a lovely shade of onyx, is many things: sweet, pungent, earthy, almost truffle-like. What it's not: subtle. But in Chef’s Choice No. 1, @3magbrewing managed to skillfully balance the garlic's intense flavor with vanilla beans and notes of sweet chocolate, toffee, dried cherries and toasted rye bread. Our compliments to the chef.
