J Wakefield Brewery Adjunctron Project: Yellow Lion

What the brewers say

Aged in a blend of maple, vanilla, and double-oak bourbon barrels, infused with coffee.

What our panel thought

Vanilla and bourbon up front in the aroma. Taste does not disappoint: vanilla and bourbon up front with cof-fee in the background, held together by the barrel character. A very enjoyable beer. All of these flavors meld together and interplay very well.

What our editors thought

Maple sweetness over a vaguely coffee nose leads to a sip that expertly balances coffee bitterness and a maple-vanilla sweetness. It’s not cloying, but a fully realized integration of the various ingredients.
