What the brewers say

“Barrel-aged with toasted coconut, toasted macadamia nut, vanilla.”

What our panel thought

“Light coconut aroma, with complementary vanilla and whiskey. Flavor is lightly roasted with subtle coconut. Whiskey is sharp, cleansing in mid-palate. Finish of sweet caramel, roasted malt, significant whiskey. It’s missing the stout smoothness to round it out.”

What our editors thought

“Chocolate bread-loaf aroma with a touch of anise. Initially sweeter chocolate flavor quickly finds its earthy ground, with a rather pronounced dark-chocolate bitterness.”
