What the brewers say

"Boiled for more than six hours, with Belgian candi sugar, cocoa husks, and Tahitian vanilla beans."

What our panel thought

"Solid chocolate and espresso aroma; moderate barrel and whiskey. Notes of light cherry, raisin, soy sauce, marmite. An explosion of roast and fruit in the flavor: rich chocolate-espresso, esters of cherry, blueberry, fig, and black currant. Subdued barrel. Roasty-dry finish. Lovely richness and balance."

What our editors thought

"Deep nutty-chocolate nose with barrel-coconut and vanilla. The sip is a touch thin but pushes deep chocolate, coconut, licorice, and dark cacao. A thoroughly rich and flavorful experience."
