“The taste is rich with deep roasted malts, co­coa, cof­fee, and a touch of vanilla bal­anced per­fectly against the al­co­hol.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Lots of bar­rel with whiskey and vanilla. Dark choco­late malt, cof­fee, and rich malt. Ev­ery­thing is re­ally in­tense.” Fla­vor: “Mas­sively rich and com­plex, tons of choco­late, caramel, oak, whiskey with a nice boozy fin­ish that isn’t overly hot. The bit­ter­ness and al­co­holic fin­ish keep the sweet­ness in check, and the com­plex char­ac­ter lingers re­ally well.” Over­all: “A re­ally good huge, com­plex bar­rel-aged stout. Tons of stout rich­ness that is ac­cen­tu­ated by the spicy, boozy bar­rel char­ac­ter. Ev­ery­thing is nicely bal­anced and com­plex.”
