Creature Comforts Brewing Life in Flux
What the brewers say
A blended imperial stout aged in whiskey barrels.
What our panel thought
Immediate impression of baker’s chocolate with a touch of coffee is joined by cherry, plum, and molasses. The flavor is a rich balance of all of those. Caramel/vanilla sweetness adds some dessert character without being cloying. Almost perfect alcohol warmth.
What our editors thought
Richly woody with a burnt caramel note on the nose. The flavor is wide and vast, with big woody notes braced by tighter dark chocolate with slightly spicy and warming bourbon. Richly engaging and thoroughly in-triguing with a sweetness throughout that finishes on a tight roast.
