What the brewer says

“Bour­bon-bar­rel stout.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Ethanol up in the nose. Rich caramel be­hind that. Maybe a bit of umami? Hard to get much choco­late, cof­fee, or roast be­cause the booze is pretty in­tense.” Fla­vor: “Rich dark fruit sweet­ness. This has great com­plex­ity with dark cher­ries, tof­fee, and choco­late, but it is miss­ing any stout roast char­ac­ter. Boozy as hell. The fin­ish isn’t par­tic­u­larly bit­ter, but the al­co­holic heat leaves that im­pres­sion. Still quite sweet over­all.” Over­all: “Mas­sive and boozy. Can’t re­ally say this is a stout, but it’s made and ex­hibits great bar­rel char­ac­ter on a rich and com­plex base beer. Toes the line to be­ing cloy­ing, but that’s cut by the heat on the fin­ish.”
