Ecliptic Brewing BA Sedna Tiramisu Stout
What the brewers say
"Hibernates for 11 months, picking up notes of caramel, spice, and oak complexity."
What our panel thought
"Semisweet nose: coffee, cocoa, cinnamon. Sweet up front; lingering coffee and chocolate flow underneath. Smooth, appealing. Dry, roast-coffee finish with spicy barrel, which masks some softer traits."
What our editors thought
"Bourbon, dark cherries, cocoa, and burnt-sugar caramel drive the nose. The sip pushes dry cocoa forward, for heavy chocolate without excessive sweetness. Light body never quite brings the expected oomph."
