Civil Society 4th Anniversary Black Label
What the brewers say
"Pretzels, marshmallow, peanut butter, and Ugandan cocoa nibs."
What our panel thought
"Mixed-bag nose—pretzels, chocolate, peanut flour, roasted malt. Thick, chewy body—creamy peanut butter in the fore, layered atop chocolate malt, caramel, marshmallow, and roasted malts. A cacophony."
What our editors thought
"Intense roasted nut, dried fig and plum, vanilla, and vinous Cabernet in the nose. Roasted-peanut and dark-berry-jam. Doesn’t rely on cloying sweetness."
