Creature Comforts Brewing Concurrence (Blend No. 2)
What the brewers say
Aged in rye whiskey barrels with coffee and cinnamon added after aging.
What our panel thought
Prominent coffee and cinnamon aroma. Cinnamon and chocolate dominate the flavor with nice coffee under-tones. Balanced roasty backbone and sticky sweetness lead to a fairly clean finish. Very warm and drinkable.
What our editors thought
Sharply defined cinnamon notes play off some vanilla and coconut from the barrel, underpinned by a solid coffee roast. The sip is a touch too sweet—pleasantly softening the spice but dulling the edge as broadcast by the nose. Enjoyable if a bit loose.
