Alvarado Street Brewery Anniversary Ale 2022

What the brewers say

“Blend of imperial stouts aged in bourbon barrels across 26–52 months.”

What our panel thought

“Aroma of deep, dark, sweet chocolate and espresso with oaky vanilla. Flavor: medium-sweet chocolate, deep rich coffee, sweet molasses. Finishes sweet, but not cloying.”

What our editors thought

“Bold bourbon nose, sweet and vibrant with citrus zest, fresh oak, a touch of cinnamon. Deep sweet chocolate in the flavor with citrus highlights, roasted hazelnut, and sweet caramel that surfaces as the initial bitterness subsides.”
