Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project Continuum II
What the brewers say
"Bourbon Barrel-aged Imperial Stout."
What our panel thought
“Aroma is an intense blast of dark chocolate, peanuts, caramel, vanilla, and molasses. The sip brings notes of dark chocolate, crème brûlée, vanilla, cherries, blueberries, and plums. Thick, viscous body. Very sweet, but not quite cloying.”
What our editors thought
“Deep woody umami note suggests extended age, with mushroom, vanilla, and coconut barrel notes. The sip is luxuriously sweet, with cherry top notes adding a bright fruitiness to the dark affair.”
