What the brewers say

“The hidden soul of this oak bourbon barrel-aged beer, which we said Dosvidanya (‘good-bye’) to several months before revealing, is its rich, robust, and roasty maltiness that finishes dry.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Thick chewy vanilla, moderate rich dark chocolate, touch of roast, moderate vanilla, woodsy earthiness. Strong coffee provides a nice backbone. Coconut and dried fruit add some nice complexity. Smells sweet and inviting with some mild alcohol.”

Flavor: “Tastes like a fresh brownie hot out of the oven with the same thick chewy vanilla and chocolate present in the aroma. It is creamy, with just enough carb to make everything pop. Strong coffee notes, moderate sharp roast, caramel sweetness, and oak tannins. Coconut and spicy alcohol round it out.”

Overall: “Good full-bodied imperial stout with a touch of warming, light barrel complexities, and a bit of oak tannins. Loved it. It hits all the right notes without being overpowering or heavy-handed. A very balanced beer.”
