At the 12th annual Extreme Beer Fest a fantastic merry-go-round of craft beers, flavored with the likes of smoked pineapple and white truffle, got our correspondent deliciously drunk.

I couldn’t put my finger on what I was drinking. Carton Brewing’s Cosmonaut was labeled a Russian imperial stout and had many of the standard flavors of the style, but something was a little...odd.

It was roasty and chocolate-y as expected, but also had some syrupy sweet vanilla and strawberry notes that confused me. I asked Augie Carton, co-founder of the New Jersey brewery, what was in his beer. He smiled mischievously, before responding: “Astronaut ice cream.”
