Mikerphone Brewing Amburana

What the brewers say

“Base imperial stout aged in a Buffalo Trace bourbon barrel and conditioned on Amburana spirals.”

What our panel thought

“Cold brew roasted coffee overwhelms any other subtle aromatics. The initial sip is a nice blend of intensely bitter roasted coffee and chocolate sweetness with the bitterness of the coffee slowly fading and allowing some caramel, vanilla, and custard-like notes to emerge as things fade into the finish. The alcoholic heat is not hiding but lends a smooth runway for the beer to land upon and remain drinkable even with the ABV.”

What our editors thought

“Distinct coffee note on the nose, defined and singular. Sweet and spicy in the sip, as cocoa and caramel sweetness intertwine with a nutty coffee thread. Big and rich, but tightly balanced.”
