Area Two Experimental Brewing Barrel-Aged Chocolate Cookie Stout
What the brewers say
"Barrel-aged chocolate cookie stout with natural flavors added."
What our panel thought
“Intoxicating chocolate-pastry aroma—big, bready cookie dough. Flavor brings big coconut, toasted bread crust, fresh-baked cookie, and moderately sweet chocolate. Like warm cookies soaked in rich liqueur. Huge coconut macaroon notes. Finishes sweet, with lingering coconut and creamy roast. Slightly harsh warmth. Big, chewy mouthfeel. Chocolate pastry bomb.”
What our editors thought
“An almost perfumy coconut note on the nose with nutty back notes leads to a sip that throws a vegetal edge on otherwise toasty-sweet elements.”
