What the brewers say

“Big, bold, black, and aged in bourbon barrels. A lengthy conditioning period creates a silky smooth chocolaty mouthfeel enhanced by the use of oats and brown sugar. Noticeable sweetness gets balanced by roasted malt and hops bitterness. Additional flavors include bourbon, vanilla, and oak.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Hints of booze, chocolate, and toasted coconut. Barrel components stand out—some wood but mostly whiskey.”

Flavor: “Prominent smooth, creamy milk chocolate and coffee. Low supporting hops. Spicy woody alcohol flavor. Complex malt richness with toffee and coconut is accentuated by the barrel-aged qualities that add a tannic wood dryness, some toasted coconut, and a pleasant underlying boozy warmth. Finish is rich, but not overly cloying.”

Overall: “Great underlying Baltic porter with interesting barrel-aged character. It certainly comes across pretty strong and a bit boozy, but you’re paying for a barrel-aged beer so it should slap you around a bit.”
