Creature Comforts Brewing Concurrence No. 5
What the brewers say
"Imperial stout aged in bourbon barrels with coconut, Ugandan vanilla, and dulce de leche."
What our panel thought
"Sweet, rich, cream-and-sugar nose—coffee, vanilla, caramel ice cream, coconut, low oak. Smooth, full body like sweet Turkish coffee. Nice finishing bitterness to balance—sweet, not sticky."
What our editors thought
"Gorgeously edited nose of caramel, vanilla, coconut, and roast leads into a vanilla-caramel sip, pitching bold notes against a sweet, dark-roast-coffee body. Maintains rugged character despite indulgence."
