Goose Island Beer Co. Suffolk County Stout
What the brewers say
"Imperial stout brewed with English hops and English malts then aged in Adnams Southwold single malt whisky barrels from Suffolk County, England."
What our panel thought
“Quintessential barrel-aged stout nose: roasted barley, whiskey, vanilla, and caramel. The flavor profile takes a bit of a detour, adding some berry and stone-fruit complexities. Pleasantly sweet, a smidge boozy.”
What our editors thought
“Chocolate and very light smoke on the nose lead into a whiskey-driven sip with subtle dark fruit (almost vinous) and bold roasty notes. Dark chocolate lingers.”
