Kros Strain Brewing Company Imperial Stout

What the brewers say

“Imperial stout aged for 24 months in Heaven Hill barrels.”

What our panel thought

“On the nose, lightly roasted malt gives way quickly to chocolate/caramel/bourbon sweetness. Rich almost bready malt underneath instantly bumps up against bourbon. A viscous malt profile with blackstrap molasses and bittersweet chocolate laced with vintage port. Spirits overwhelm other barrel character, but vanilla adds late complexity. An enjoyable sipper.”

What our editors thought

“Subtle spice tones in the nose—vanilla, chai, curry—carry through in the sip, with warming ethanol buzz. Quirky yet engaging.”
