Highland Park Brewery Brunch Friends
What the brewers say
"Imperial Brunch Stout with maple, vanilla, coffee, and amburana wood made in celebration of the HPB Bottle Friends."
What our panel thought
“A delightful cinnamon-maple French toast on the nose with underlying roast and coffee. Maple complexity continues into the flavor where the roast malt comes out more. A strong initial sweetness slowly fades into a balanced finish with just a hint of alcohol warmth.”
What our editors thought
“Over-the-top maple nose goes for the breakfast-stout gusto, with light coffee notes behind it. The sip brings the expected sweetness, but with a toothy smooth roast that grounds it. Big and bold, but surprising.”
