Albright Grove Brewing Company Walker Valley
What the brewers say
"This imperial stout has been aged for 12 months in bourbon barrels made from American White Oak. Rich bourbon and chocolate aroma, with a substantial malt body with notes of toffee, caramel, chocolate and coffee, and complex notes of vanilla and coconut from the oak's tannins, this is a wonderful stout to share or savor all on your own."
What our panel thought
“Powerhouse of caramel, fudge, vanilla, and berry-like fruitiness. The flavor is a tug-of-war between bitter, dark chocolate, and coffee-like roast malt, as oak-derived vanilla and boozy heat look on.”
What our editors thought
“Nose captures the beautiful nuance of coconut, vanilla, and boozy oak from barrels alone. The sip is punchy. As it warms, a leathery timelessness takes hold.”
