Sweet oak-barreled bourbon subtlety integrates well with velvety Hawaiian coffee overtones (though phenolic carbonation lowers rich intensity). Underneath roasted coffee extravagance, oats-sugared chocolate fudging and distant creme-bruleed vanilla illusions contrast nearly coarse wood-burnt hop char.
On tap at Mohawk House, blackberry-infused full body utilizes subtle bourbon sweetness and lightly creamed milk chocolate sugaring to reinforce its berry goodness. Tart, tangy and tannic blackberry essence fortifies syrupy chocolate stead as sweet vanilla snips as well as black cherry, raspberry puree and sugarplum whims add depth.
Just better-than-average bourbon barreled stout lets arid carbolic spritz downsize medium-roast Haitian coffee overtones, chintzy bourbon sweetness and evaporative milk chocolate creaming. Light oaken char embitters the backend while mild molasses sweetness affects tertiary blackberry and black cherry nuances and distant cola nuttiness.
Sugary vanilla creaming and wispy bourbon-barreled vanilla bean influence suits sweet-toothed fanatics. Corn-flaked pale malts pick up lightly spiced pecan nuttiness way beneath the cream soda surface.
Thin, uninvolving fruit ale aged in oaken bourbon barrels needs deeper peach penetration. Sweet bourbon influence, light maple sugaring and wispy vanilla daub dissipate above honeyed wheat spine while fuzzy carbolic spritz waters down entirety.
