What the brewers say

“Imperial stout aged in Heaven Hill bourbon barrels.”

What our panel thought

“Rich base balances toffee-like chocolate and stiff whiff of bourbon. Mega fruit nose: candied pineapple, white grapes play off cherry liqueur. In the sip, rich dark chocolate, whiskey, and warming vanillin finish. Not super sweet, not super boozy, but an elegant, delicate beer.”

What our editors thought

“A lightly smoky, almost tequila nose with some richer stout tones. The sip stays in the midtones, with dark-fruit notes, lighter body, and a touch of licorice in the linger.”
