Breakside Brewery Cute Metal
What the brewers say
"Blended Imperial Stout aged in Bourbon barrels for 12 months and aged on Ecuadorian chocolate/cacao nibs."
What our panel thought
“Cocoa Puffs pop out of the glass; rich, gooey aroma with fudge, rum, dates, dried cherries. Flavor packs a punch, bringing bittersweet chocolate, vanilla, blackberries, vintage Port—low, pleasant oxidation.”
What our editors thought
“Dark-chocolate berry in the nose, with Port-like red-grape and bourbon-derived waffle-cone vanilla. Smooth on the tongue—thick but not weighty—with vibrant vanilla.”
