Lovely barrel-aged version of rich stout relays expansive bourbon mocha milkshake creaminess to peaty Scotch whiskey boozing. Seeped in Heaven Hill bourbon barrels for 14 months, opulent black chocolate syruping picks up chewy anise spicing and bittersweet vanilla beaning almost immediately. Ancillary black cherry, raspberry and red grape tartness turns vinous while cozy cola-hazelnut sway stays way beneath the caramelized chocolate bourbon heap.
Extravagantly rich barrel-aged version of SYF soaked in Social Still Rye Whiskey from local Bethlehem distillery conveys luxurious bourbon, burgundy and sherry tones to enhance whiskey-buzzed rye conviction draped by dark chocolate syrup. Bold coffee roast then comes to the fore boosted by vanilla bean, cola, hazelnut and blueberry illusions. An excellent mocha-derived rye whiskey alternative.
Swaggeringly rich full-bodied Imperial Stout delivers fudgy dark chocolate-milked coffee sugaring to mild hop char. Bold mocha theme allows tertiary vanilla, bean, hazelnut and blueberry illusions to lightly affect dominant black chocolate-coffee continuance. A treasured slow sippin’ dessert.
Staying more bitter than sweet, affable medium-bodied porter relies on light-roast coffee theme, slowly gaining dry espresso, dark cocoa and Brazil nut illusions reinforced by sharp hop char. Interesting day-old coffee changeup.
A warm bourbon-sweetened rye quilt provides mellow serenity for barrel-aged wee heavy. Mildly vinous red grape souring contrasts spicy caramelized malts as well as delightful sherry, merlot, armagnac and cognac illusions. Brown-sugared rye whiskey finish is heavenly.
Engaging wee heavy lets smoked chocolate malting pick up caramelized bourbon pleasantry, mild dewy sweetness and light hop spicing above honeyed rye spine. Sweet chocolate continuance gains latent prune-stewed dried fruiting.
Polite pomegranate-juiced hibiscus flowering drapes mild orange-peeled clove and coriander spicing to sweet wheat spine of hybridized witbier. Peppery herbal Belgian-derived yeast funk adds spunk while lightly vinous grape phenols and tart green apple whims increase overall sourness for delicately displayed pomegranate adjunct.
Profound Belgian quadrupel aged two years in Heaven Hill bourbon barrels retains creamy mocha sweetness and dried fruited intensity. Rich brown chocolate-spiced dry bourbon entry gains subtle Scotch whiskey boozing as raisin-prune-date conflux, candi-sugared caramel malting, sweetly soured red wine esters and musty cellar funk deepen bold complexity of bourbon-barreled (10.5% ABV) Belgian dark strong ale.
Mildly curious East Coast-styled IPA utilizes lemony dill-spiced Sorachi Ace hops to further embitter piney orange-peeled grapefruit and pineapple tang above rich cookie dough-like caramel malting. Slightly offbeat and sharp medium-bodied ale.
Sunny citric spicing awakens sessionable India Pale Ale. Piquant lemony grapefruit, tangerine and navel orange tang gains herbal hop phenols and light juniper bittering above caramelized pale malting. Brisk, clean and engaging, with less earthen peat musk than tapped version.
Efficient medium-bodied autumnal ale lets brown-sugared pumpkin pie spicing gently seep into brisk phenol hop sharpness and recessive lemon-drop tartness. Waning cinnamon-nutmeg spicing allows dewy wet-leafed earthiness to expand across the yam-sweetened pumpkin plain.
Gleaming coriander-spiced orange peel sweetness gathers candi-sugared Belgian yeast influence to contrast herbal citric hop funk and mild cider souring. Brisk citrus spicing picks up delicate floral wisps as well as pastoral chamomile, chardonnay, butternut and chestnut whims at the finish.
