Foothills Brewing Dead & Berried Imperial Stout
What the brewers say
"Aged in Woodford Reserve barrels and finished with Oregon blackberries."
What our panel thought
“Dark berries, fudge, roast, and licorice on the nose. In the flavor, robust roast, berry tartness, and bitterness shove sweetness to the back. Tootsie Roll and caramel as it warms.”
What our editors thought
“On the vinous side of barrel-aged stouts, it feels less ‘berry-driven’ in the nose than some others that lack actual berries. On the sip, the fruit is again more vinous jammy.”
