What the brewers say

“Bourbon barrel–aged imperial stout with cinnamon and vanilla.”

What our panel thought

“Adjuncts play off the barrel character, adding a spiciness throughout. Substantial base stout adds sweetness and body to balance, leaving an impression of cinnamon-spiced hot chocolate. Barrel aging adds depth without harshness.”

What our editors thought

“Sweet, spicy aroma with strong cinnamon and a chocolate liqueur–like boozy note. Cohesive and smooth in the sip, as the spice pulls into the generally sweet, dark-chocolate fold with woody and nutty tones around the edges.”
