What the brewers say

“Inspired by the flavors found in black forest cake, this recipe called for a rich imperial stout, with notes of chocolate, barrel-aged character, sweet vanilla and tart, juicy cherries.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Heavy bourbon notes, roasted almond, vanilla, and light coconut. The cherry is tucked in there with all of the bourbon flavors, but in combination provides a nice amaretto note.”

Flavor: “Dark chocolate with vanilla and burnt marshmallows, aged cherries, coffee, bourbon, with a sweet, slightly tart finish.”

Overall: “Fun flavor profile from start to finish. A wonderful beer that melds the cherry almost perfectly with the barrel character. Don Draper would order this beer and then probably yell at Sally.”
