I sampled every brown, red and organic beer Saturday at the Oregon Spring Beer and Wine Festival in Portland.
But it was Almond Roca Cake that was the day's top memory -- mostly because there is absolutely no Almond Roca in this cake.
In fact, the cake's toffee candiness comes from Heath Bar crumbles.
Roughly the size of an over-inflated rugby ball, the cake features three layers of pound cake, two layers of dark chocolate ganache frosting, Heath Bar crumbles, more frosting and more Heath Bar crumbles. It paired deliciously with Black Bear XX Stout from Alameda Brewhouse.
