In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


High Water BA Campfire Stout

Aroma: “Graham crackers, vanilla, balanced bourbon, citrus, and alcohol.”

Flavor: “The molasses and the unique malt sweetness dominate, but are coupled with this dark umami richness that approaches soy sauce, but still stays a healthy distance from that fate. The bourbon barrel contributes to the heat, but also rounds all the flavors together while adding a nice toasted almond and vanilla note that helps compliment the molassess.”

Overall: “A deeply rich beer that provides a bit of a challenge to decipher but offers some nice discoveries all the way.”
