Melvin Brewing Eureka (House of Flying Barrels) 2 Years
What the brewers say
"Imperial Smoked Wheat Stout aged for 18months in Weller Bourbon barrels with Coconut and toasted Pistachios added. Made to commemorate our 2 year anniversary."
What our panel thought
“Muted earthy aroma, with chocolate, coconut, and roast coffee in the background. Very sweet coconut and chocolate flavors, as coffee, vanilla, and earthy notes trail behind. Overripe fruit plum notes.”
What our editors thought
“Broadly fruity peanut-coconut nose with dark malt flourishes. The sip skews tropical, with a bit of toasted coconut and malt-chocolate, but it trades dimension for accessibility.”
