What the brewer says

“A pair of Ge­or­gia’s best liq­uid ar­ti­sans have come to­gether to com­bine two art forms: craft brewing and craft dis­till­ing. Rich­land Re­serve, the sec­ond in our Ales from the Wood se­ries, is made from vin­tage 2015 Tiramisu-hoo Im­pe­rial Milk Stout and has been mas­ter­fully aged in Rich­land Rum bar­rels for more than twenty-two months.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Home­made ol’ time cough syrup, aged dark choco­late, rum-like al­co­hol, cof­fee, raisin, card­board ox­i­da­tion, vanilla, and spice.” Fla­vor: “Sur­pris­ingly, the co­conut comes first, with cof­fee trail­ing close be­hind. Then the rich sweet­ness brings up the rear: very big maple, pecan praline, dates, caramel, and rich tof­fee. Nice vanilla. Warm­ing al­co­hol.” Over­all: “Crazy fla­vor­ful beer. So much go­ing on that it tastes more like dessert than beer and so much fun to an­a­lyze.”
