Perennial Artisan Ales Maman
What the brewers say
"Three vintages of spirit-barrel–aged stout ranging in age from 20–30 months."
What our panel thought
"Inky-black aroma, hints of coconut, toast, Reese's peanut butter cups, dark chocolate. Throwback stout character—bittersweet chocolate, prune, restrained sweetness."
What our editors thought
"Deepest and darkest of noses—anise and French roast. Layered sip with hazelnut, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, crème brûlée, and singed marshmallow. Smooth, engaging, thoughtful."
