Dry Milan & Greene whiskey barrel-aged brown ale coalesces dewy peat soiling with barleycorn sour mash, rye molasses breading and cocoa bean sedation before flattening out to tannic red-wined black grape musk.
On tap at Ambulance, waywardly off-center bourbon-aged amber-browned eisbock brings spiced tea pleasantries to dry bourbon-toned oaken vanilla musk.

On tap at The Oath, curious bourbon-aged brown ale brings lightly creamed chocolate-soured vanilla esters to Hillrock Estate bourbon sweetness. Ancillary black cherry, fig and date notions swirl below stylishly mellow and strangely soy-soured (8.5% ABV) strong dark ale.
Finicky bourbon sugaring affects sweet caramel-toffee-vanilla conflux as well as dried wood base. Tertiary black cherry, black grape and fig notions fade into the backdrop of stylishly moderate sedation.
