Dulce Chocolate Mousse – $5.25

with Chocolate Crémeux and Dark Chocolate Truffle

2022 Festival of the Arts Deco Delights 17

This is as good as it is beautiful. The mousse has almost a nutty undertone, but it’s not off-putting. This flavor is nicely set against the rich chocolate creme and truffle that are to the side and on top, respectively. The entire thing sits on a chocolate cookie.

Decadent Valrhona Chocolate – $5.00

with Dark Chocolate Mousse, Chocolate Brownie and Cassis Mousse

2022 Festival of the Arts Deco Delights 10

It’s a good thing they put decadent in the name because it is the perfect description. It is the richest, most dense chocolate dessert we have ever had, coming from both the brownie and the mousse. The presentation is gorgeous, and it’s worth a try for the quality of the dish as well.

Orange Mousse – $5.00

with Lemon Cake and Raspberry Meringues

We applaud an orange mousse that is many colors but orange.

It’s a solid dessert; the mousse is tart as you might expect.

The lemon cake was very moist and paired well, while the meringues were hard to break, leading us to smash the lemon cake in the process.

It’s fine but not a must-have, especially if you only choose one confection from the selections here.

3 Daughters Brewing Strawberry Blonde Nitro, St. Petersburg, FL (5.0% ABV) – $5.50 for 6 oz., $9.50 for 12 oz.

From 3 Daughters Brewing Company: “It is golden in color with a very slight pink hue and a white head. This blonde ale is infused with strawberries during secondary fermentation. The smell of strawberry dominates the aroma but there is a modest malt essence. The flavor is an even balance of malt and strawberry with just a little hop bitterness. It is crisp, dry and nitrogen gives it a smooth creamy finish.”

We found the beer to be a bit too hoppy. It wasn’t bad, but it’s not a beer that should be on nitro, as standard carbonation would be a better taste. In fact, the nitro made this beer taste almost flat, whereas on a stout, it gives a creamy mouthfeel.

81Bay Brewing Co. Vanilla Porter, Tampa, FL (6.0% ABV) – $5.50 for 6 oz., $9.50 for 12 oz.

From correspondence with 81Bay Brewing Co., their Vanilla Porter is “a creamy nitrogenated American Porter with a roasted malty backbone, perfectly complemented by natural organic vanilla.”

Playalinda Brewing Company Milk Stout, Titusville, FL (4.5% ABV) – $5.50 for 6 oz., $9.50 for 12 oz.

From Playalinda Brewing Company: “This special nitro milk stout is brewed with lactose to give a slight sweet and creamy mouthfeel. followed by enticing notes of dark chocolate, finished off with mellow flavors of roasted malt.”

*NEW* Espresso Martini featuring Boyd & Blair Potato Vodka – $11.50

espresso martini 1

We think that this is fine. If you like espresso martinis, you’ll probably like this, but there are much better espresso martinis elsewhere on property.

The espresso is the best flavor in the drink, the only issue is that it does taste like a lower-end espresso martini.

It’s not bad, but we wouldn’t get it again if we had an option to get it anywhere else.
