What the brewers say

"Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout with hints of molasses and licorice."

What our panel thought

“In the nose, dark roast, sweet chocolate, and sun-dried tobacco leaves intermingle. Bitter dark-chocolate flavor, huge roast, with some sweetness in the background. Leans old school with the higher bittering, but with enough new-school smooth chocolate to balance.”

What our editors thought

“Bold Pacific Northwest hops and tight roast malt offer a distinctly American nose. Uses barrel-aging to smooth hop and roast edges into a delicious beer to be drunk by the snifter, not the taster.”
