What the brewers say

“Imperial stout aged two years in 14- to 18-year-old whiskey barrels.”

What our panel thought

“Smoky and roasty on the nose, like dark chocolate–coated ribs. Flavor profile is classic BA stout: cacao with rich nougat, vanilla, treacle, mocha interlaced with bourbon. Just enough bitternesss to keep it from being cloying.”

What our editors thought

“Richly classic nose with sharper roast-malt notes and softer caramel. The sip is focused and charged, with a touch of bitter roast and lightly sweet balancing caramel layers, but the bitterness lends it a clean finish.”
