What the brewers say

“Dark chocolate, vanilla, tobacco, coconut, a touch of dark cherry.”

What our panel thought

“Notes of rich cocoa, toffee, raisins, and dark cherries float above a barrel character with some spirit notes and pleasant oxidation. The flavor continues the dark-chocolate notes with a nice, warming alcohol and residual-spirit character. Smooth, drinkable, and full of luscious flavors.”

What our editors thought

“Burnt brown sugar with a wet leather and chocolate-tobacco note in the nose. Chocolate caramel drives the sip, with a deep cacao truffle note and structured bitterness that gives it a persistent strength.”
