Prison City Pub & Brewery Wham Whams
What the brewers say
The original, non-barrel-aged version of this beer starts as full bodied imperial stout. Conditioned on toasted coconut and Madagascar vanilla beans. Like a boozy liquid Mounds bar.
What our panel thought
Rich aroma with notes of dried coconut, chocolate, and coffee with a subtle smoky character. Round and full-bodied with enough bitterness to cut the sweetness and keep it from being cloying and a lingering finish with dark chocolate, spice, and coconut. Warming and complex without harsh edges.
What our editors thought
Strong Cocoa Puffs nose captures the baked-chocolate-with-cereal grain character of the breakfast favorite. The sip is luxuriously thick and coating, with sweet and bitter chocolate notes in balance, but it’s squarely on the ‘dessert beer’ end of the spectrum.
