The Bruery Aloha Friday
What the brewers say
"Imperial stout aged in bourbon barrels with toasted coconut and macadamia nuts."
What our panel thought
"Indulgent dark chocolate, big roast malt, coffee, sweet coconut, and rough oak on the nose. Alcohol burn on the initial sip, with moderating nutty-coconut richness, and smooth chocolate malt."
What our editors thought
"Tropical earthy richness on the nose; peanut-coconut character persists into the sip. It's hard to find more, but the beer hides its ABV well despite the thin body."
